The Fault in Our Stars

The trailer for The Fault in Our Stars is out! Finally! This is definitely one that I will not miss. It’s a love story about two teenagers who meet at a cancer support group, which sounds like the sort of movie that could make me sigh for over 100 minutes straight, just like P.S. I Love You, A Walk to Remember, and The Notebook did, but the protagonists in The Fault in Our Stars also mean something: they represent us. Us, as in the generation growing up and reaching adulthood right now, who are trying in vain to find the happiness that their parents promised them as children. It teaches the lesson, as the book’s author, John Green, put it, of, “doing things that are worth doing rather than worrying about being celebrated for having done them.” It teaches our rising generation to have happiness not at any cost, but in spite of its cost. Watch it. It will be good.
