The Fault in Our Stars is about Hazel (Woodley) and Gus (Ansel Elgort), two extraordinary teenagers who share an acerbic wit, a disdain for the conventional and a love that sweeps them on an unforgettable journey.

The Fault In Our Stars, based upon the number-one bestselling novel by John Green, explores the funny, thrilling and tragic business of being alive and in love.
