Movie Review: THE FAULT IN OUR STARS
I admit, I didn't cry when I read the books. BUT I sobbed HARD around the halfway point of the movie.
First off, it was a very faithful adaption of the book. It captured the heartbreaking and bittersweet relationship of Hazel and Guz down to the last detail. Shailene Woodley is even more beautiful with short hair and little to no makeup, and she portrayed Hazel exactly how I imagined her to be. Ansel Elgort, while not how I imagined Gus look-wise, portrayed the character's rawness and vulnerability like no other.
It's an emotional roller-coaster ride - you'll laugh and cry and it's sad yet it's sweet. It's no surprise that the movie is doing AMAZING at the box office, and still continues to do so both in the United States and internationally.
Really, there's no reason not to watch it! :) So go go go!!
I'm excited to see these two actors reunite again as the siblings Tris and Caleb Prior in Insurgent, and hopefully I won't confused them for Hazel and Gus!
