There needs to be a place for teen melodrama. The Fault in Our Stars at least tries to fill it.
Turning the screenwriting over to adaptation experts Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber has preserved the distinctly literate tone of the book, even if they do occasionally deliver scenes that feel overwrought.
It walks a knife s edge between heart-on-sleeve sensitivity and crass exploitation for its entire running time, and the fact that it largely stays on the right side of that divide has to mark it as a success.
In the second half, with the forced jauntiness largely foregone, the movie takes a deep breath and realizes it s nobler to be an effective formula drama than a wan comedy.
The movie is well-written, well-acted, acerbic, funny and wisely observed. Fans of the book will be glad to hear it is faithful to Green s tale.
