Did You Know?

Trivia

John Green was inspired by a girl named Esther Grace Earl. Hazel Grace Lancaster's name was probably based on Esther's name since they share the same middle name. See more »

Goofs

When reading the eulogy, Hazel states there are more numbers between 0 and 2 than between 0 and 1 (and more between 0 and 1000 than 0 and 1), thus there are a different number of infinities. There are actually exactly the same amount of numbers between 0 and 1 and 0 and 2 (their infinities are equal). In fact there are the same amount of numbers between 0 and 1 and between negative infinity and positive infinity.

It is true that there are different levels of infinities, i.e, some infinities ARE bigger than others, however Hazels logic does not prove this. Cantor's diagonal argument on Wikipedia explains this. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
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.

Sad, But Incredibly Beautiful
3 June 2014 | by (NY) – See all my reviews

I went into this movie not having read the book and not knowing anything more than the overall plot. I am a sucker for a good love story, especially love that I can relate to. The pain and emotions felt by the characters felt so real, as if I was feeling the same emotions.

Though this was THE SADDEST movie I have ever seen, it was also one of the most beautiful, as it truly showed how exhilarating and comforting and exciting love is.

I probably cried throughout about half of the movie, along with the rest of the audience. I cried to the point of heaving out loud and needing more than the 2 tissues I came in with. Again, the actors really expressed the emotions of the characters well and I felt that.

I am going to see it again for sure.

GO SEE IT IF YOU LOVE EMOTIONAL MOVIES!
