I saw The Fault In Our Stars with my mum yesterday. We both read the book over a year ago and enjoyed it so when I heard the movie was happening I was stoked! Initially the casting disappointed me as visually they were very different to the Hazel and Gus I imagined in my head. Even when the first trailer came out I wasn't sure they had acquired the perfect cast but after watching the movie you can't imagine anybody else inhabiting these characters. Ansel Elgort was natural, charming, heartbreaking and perfectly pretentious as Augustus Waters and Shailene Woodley portrayed Hazel Grace Lancaster with truth and respect. Similarly to The Perks of Being A Wallflower the supporting cast were brilliant too.
I could go on and on about how beautiful the movie was and how much it made me cry but more than anything the thing I took away from this movie is that I want love. It makes you want someone with whom to share what little time you spend on this earth. Their love story was so simple and beautiful and we all could have one like it if only we put ourselves out there and were open to possibilities and experiences instead of being closed off to the world. So many of us are afraid of rejection but when you know you have limited time left on earth fear of rejection becomes so futile.
My thoughts are stars I cannot fathom into constellations. ♥
