If you’re in the mood for a good cry this summer, “The Fault In Our Stars” will do the trick. It’s a weepie about cancer and beautiful young people, all powered by a hot soundtrack. And if you want to get those tears working early, five clips from the movie have dropped online.
Shailene Woodley stars in this one as a young woman with terminal cancer who meets a handsome young man in her support group and they fall in love. But as you might expect, their romance may be tinged with something far more tragic. We won’t say what happens, though folks who read the book by John Green probably already know. Josh Boone directs this one, which has a script by Mark Weber and Scott Neustadter (“The Spectacular Now“), and as manipulative as this movie sounds, Woodley is always a charming presence.
The Fault In Our Stars” opens on June 6th. [Blackfilm]
