Life changes in an instant for young Mia Hall after a car accident puts her in a coma. During an out-of-body experience, she must decide whether to wake up and live a life far different than she had imagined. The choice is hers if she can go on.
In a world divided by factions based on virtues, Tris learns she's Divergent and won't fit in. When she discovers a plot to destroy Divergents, Tris and the mysterious Four must find out what makes Divergents dangerous before it's too late.
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.

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 »
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 »
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.

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!
