Based on the young adult novel by John Greene, The Fault In Our Stars follows terminally ill cancer patient Hazel as she deals with the ups and downs of teen life and her first romance with fellow cancer patient Gus. The characters don't talk like normal teens (they've been through a lot for people so young), but if you can overlook that The Fault In Our Stars is a moving coming-of-age love story. Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort star as the young couple, with Laura Dern in a supporting role as Hazel's mother.
