Favorite book and hopefully favorite movie. John Green is an amazing writer and Hazel Grace Lancaster is an amazing character.

This movie isn't out yet so we can't really rate it.

I haven't seen the movie because it isn't out yet. But I've read the book. Without giving anything away in the first couple pages Hazel and her mother argue about whether she has to go to group therapy or not.

So if the movie can hold onto at least that it will pass.

If you haven't read the book, at the very beginning of the trailer, Hazel and her mother are shown talking about her therapy group, so this movie does pass the test.

It was a terrible idea for someone to rate this movie before seeing it. What is this, Amazon? But I saw it last night. The protagonist, Hazel, and her mother, Frannie, talk about group therapy, making friends, Hazel's treatment, the trip they're taking together, and Frannie's plans for the future after Hazel dies. There are a bunch of short but meaningful conversations scattered throughout where they talk about their relationship and Frannie's concern for Hazel without bringing men into it.

Evelyn, trailers frequently contain scenes that are later cut from their films. Thanks, Nessie, for writing in after actually having seen the film.

They talk to each other about the well being of one of the characters who is not a man but Hazel Grace who has cancer.

I haven't seen the movie, but in the book, Hazel and her female friend talk about boys (including Gus and the female friend's new 'boy toy')

This movie addressees a lot more than the romance between the two main characters. There are three main female characters in this movie. Hazel Grace, her mother and Lidevich, the assistant of her favorite author. Hazel and her mother discuss therapy, Hazel's disease, and take about general parental things and also deep conversations about mortality and maternal love. Lidevich and Hazel talk about Anne Frank and about Hazel's favorite author. Awesome film, awesome book.
