On Friday night, I did something I haven’t done in a very very very long time! I went out on a girls night to the movies, to see The Fault In Our Stars.
Now you’ll remember I reviewed John Green’s book of the same name earlier this year. It really is one of the most beautifully written & memorable books I have ever read. I was a little apprehensive about seeing the movie as movies based on books often don’t live up to my expectations. But I was blown away by this movie. I loved it!
The cast is fantastic and exactly how I imagined the characters in the book. The screenplay sticks closely to the story in the book, so you get to enjoy the full benefit of the witty and cynical dialogue between the main characters. But we warned…..
You need to take a box of tissues with you! I had a good drizz in the cinema and from the snukking & sniffing going on throughout the cinema, I was not alone with my emotions!
Just as a side note…. this is not a book/movie about cancer. It’s about life and love and the ironies of it all. Beautiful. Intelligent. Witty. Cynical and at times very very funny!
Go see it!!!!
