'The Fault in Our Stars': Are those tears of joy, critics?

fault-in-our-stars-07.jpg

Perhaps the people who run studios thought Divergent was the big YA novel to launch Shailene Woodley into the stratosphere, but her performance in the cancer weepie The Fault in Our Stars might be the role that makes her a giant star.

Based on John Green’s 2012 best-seller, director Josh Boone’s movie tells the story of a cynical 16-year-old cancer patient (Woodley), saddled with an oxygen tank and breathing tube, and the more-dynamic, free-spirited remission patient (Ansel Elgort) who falls in love with her. “A generation of teens like [Woodley's character] have been weaned on YA novels, leading to more discerning palates,” EW’s Chris Nashawaty writes in his review. “They can sniff out condescension from a thousand yards. That’s why they’re lucky to have an actress as effortlessly charismatic and natural as 22-year-old Woodley (The Descendants) as their stand-in.”

If you’ve read the book, you know the ending, and if you loved the book, you’re already whimpering. (Beware, fragile souls, the trailer awaits below.) If you’re perhaps older or didn’t read the book, think Love Story and everything that entails — spoilers, schmoilers. As the characters themselves learn, it’s not the ending that counts.

'The Fault in Our Stars': An unexpected phenomenon's journey from page to screen

John Green is crying again. Not because he’s sad, really. More like the way parents weep at weddings and at high school graduations. This sudden, unstoppable rush of happy tears has become so common for the 36-year-old author as he watches the filming of his 2012 novel The Fault in Our Stars, that it’s now a bit of a running joke. “John Green cries all the time,” says director Josh Boone, laughing. “This set basically has no testosterone whatsoever.”

This is a love story. It is a story of joy and devastating loss and, most of all, life. It will make you laugh and rejoice and think and feel and will expand your heart in gratitude and humility, and it will forever change the way you hear the word “okay,” and, yes, it will make you cry. If you are one of the millions of people who have read The Fault in Our Stars, you know this already. If you are not, prepare yourself — you will not walk away from this book, or this film, unaltered. Okay? Okay.

John Green reacts to 'The Fault in Our Stars' trailer: 'It was everything I wanted it to be' -- EXCLUSIVE

fault-in-our-stars-05.jpg

The Fault in Our Stars, directed by Josh Boone and starring Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort, doesn’t hit theaters till June 6 but, judging from the reaction to the trailer that was released this week, excitement for the film is running high. Adapted from the John Green bestseller (and an EW Best Fiction of 2012 pick), TFIOS tells the story of two teenagers who meet in a cancer recovery group and fall in love. But, of course, for people familiar with the book, that plot description doesn’t begin to convey the depth, poignancy and humor in Green’s novel. “It’s difficult to say to people, ‘go see this movie that’s about sick kids—you’re going to have a really good time,’” Green told EW. “But you are. I think the answer is to make something that, even when it’s sad, is not depressing. The great thing about the trailer is that you emerge from watching it feeling invigorated and encouraged. And hopefully excited.”  READ FULL STORY

Shailene Woodley on 'The Fault in Our Stars' tagline: 'It's not something I would have chosen'

On Wednesday, author John Green’s mighty fandom was rocked by the release of the first poster for The Fault in Our Stars, a highly anticipated film adaptation of Green’s bestselling YA novel.

The image itself seemed pretty much perfect — a romantic shot of the film’s cancer-stricken teenage lovers Hazel (Shailene Woodley) and Augustus (Ansel Elgort), lying in a patch of grass and looking blissfully happy together. Hazel was even wearing her cannula. But one sentence at the bottom of the poster threatened to ruin the effect. It’s the film’s chosen tagline — which reads, “One sick love story.”

Some labeled it glib and offensive. Others applauded it, admiring the tagline’s stark gallows humor. Now Fault star Woodley herself has weighed in on the tagline as well… and though she ultimately supports it, the actress also says she would have picked something different if the decision had been hers to make.
