Films: The Fault in Our Stars

it's a metaphor // Ansel Elgort
"It's a metaphor, see: you put the killing thing right between your teeth. But you don't give it the power to do its killing." 
Yesterday, my sister and I went to the movie theater to see the Most Tragic Movie Ever, The Fault in Our Stars. We both had read the book, so we knew what was in store (don't worry, this post is decidedly not full of spoilers), but it still didn't adequately prepare us for the pain. Both actors, Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort, did fabulous jobs of playing their characters with depth and emotion. As a writer, it amazes me how an author can pen a book that resonates with so many people. And to think that these people that feel so real originated in John Green's mind!
See It If: You want an emotional cinematic experience that will leave you feeling like someone punched you in the gut, but you kind of didn't mind.
Bonus: Jake Bugg, Ray LaMontagne and Tom Odell (among others) make up this movie's epic soundtrack!


  1. I can't begin to express how much I adored the book, and fell in love with the film.

    Josh Boone is a clever person, and John Green is a brilliant man to say the least.

    I love that you posted about this - it deserves to be recognised!

  2. the book made me cry so much, and i sobbed like a baby through the entire movie. it's such an amazing story.


Go with grace.
