Hazel and Augustus are two teenagers who share an acerbic wit, a disdain for the conventional, and a love that sweeps them on a journey. Their relationship is all the more miraculous, given that Hazel's other constant companion is an oxygen tank, Gus jokes about his prosthetic leg, and they meet and fall in love at a cancer support group. Written by
Author John Green based the character Hazel on a young girl named Esther Earl who was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. Green met her during a Harry Potter convention in 2009 noticing her carrying an oxygen tank. He came to like her because of some of the videos she put up on YouTube as well as her humor and openness. From the time they met to her death at the age of 16 in 2010, Green and Earl would exchange correspondence. See more »

Hazel Grace Lancaster:
I believe we have a choice in this world about how to tell sad stories. On the one hand, you can sugarcoat it the way they do in movies and romance novels, where beautiful people learn beautiful lessons, where nothing is too messed up that can't be fixed with an apology and a Peter Gabriel song. I like that version as much as the next girl, believe me. It's just not the truth. This is the truth. Sorry.

Was this shot on film? Cause there's a lot of chemistry involved!
This movie, simply put, is worth each and every one of its 125 minutes.
Including the closing credits, that you need to dry your eyes and think
about what you just saw. It's the inspiring story of two young people
who are no different then all of us, as they both are in the process of
dieing. Though Hazel Grace and Augustus are more aware of this fact of
life; because their eternity" has an expiration date, set by Hazels
terminal illness: Cancer.
As the viewer is put on an emotional roller-coaster, alongside the
feelings and attitudes towards life and love the two teens share, this
movie will be a key to many locked doors in the recepients minds. And
through these doors we are lead by an ensemble of actors who are
amazingly sensitive in their portrayal of personalities and emotions.
The writing and directing is so brilliantly executed, that you have
sympathy with every character this movie so caringly brings to (short)
life. Even when they oppose another you feel unable to take sides.
Because you find yourself sharing both. And when the credits role -
like the tears on your cheek - you realize, that these opposing views
are one and the same after all: Life.
