Reel Snippet – The Fault in Our Stars

The Fault in Our Stars is a brilliant movie, but a very difficult one for me to talk about and an even harder one to sit through. Growing up, I have lost a lot of people, some young ones to cancer, so watching a movie nail the pain and experiences so well was like losing them all over again. So when I say that I’d have a difficult time watching it again, it has nothing to do with the quality and everything to do with the old wounds it reopened. Some of the lines even felt like they were directed specifically at me, which made the film hit even closer to home. It runs the gambit of emotions, from sadness to laughter to disappointment to joy and even to heartbreak, and ever one of them hit their mark. If you’re looking for a deep film making analysis from me, you won’t find it in this article. The acting, offbeat dialogue, cinematography, and interactions are all beautiful. That’s all I can really say at the moment.
