The Fault in Our Stars


By: Daja Harshaw

I have just seen the movie “The Fault in Our Stars”, and I would like to give an opinion about the movie. This movie deals with a tough topic, cancer.

This movie came out in January of 2014, the main characters are Hazel Grace Lancaster who is played by Shailence Woodley and Augustus Waters who is played by Ansel Elgort. This movie is about how Hazel and ‘Gus(Augustus) meet at a support group (for people who have a type of cancer), and they instantly fall in love.

I  feel as though all of the actors did an extremely great job. They worked really hard during filming, and with hard work comes success.

My favorite part is when Hazel, Augustus, and Issac (which is blind) go and egg Issac’s ex girlfriend house and car. I felt as though it was payback, and it was a very funny scene. I strongly dislike the scene where Hazel and Augustus go to Amsterdam to ask the famous Peter Van Houten questions about his novel, “An Imperial Affliction”, which he did not finish.

The moral of this story is…No matter what you’re going through there will always be someone that loves you. Other people may get a different moral from the movie, and they might say not all people are as they seem. There are many different lessons a viewer could get from this movie.

I would recommend this movie to teenagers that love romances. I wouldn’t recommend this movie to small children. The MPAA rating is PG-13.


This movie gets 5 out of 5 stars.
