OMG!! Last night I saw the most beautifully stupid sad movie ever. It was brilliant. Really. I loved it so much and cried a Whole. Stinkin. Bunch. Like no joke. I started crying at the first Van Houten scene because it was sad how upset Hazel was getting. When Gus told Hazel about the cancer, I bawled. Out of all of our group, one of my friends and I were the only ones crying so we moved to sit next to each other and bawled for the last 10 minutes at least of the movie. It was so much like the book and it was beautifully made. All of the scenes were just beautiful. I know I’m saying beautiful a lot but it really was.
I also want to talk about the movie experience. Can I just say it is AWESOME to be in a room full of sobbing girls? When the title came on the screen, everyone clapped. When Augustus and Hazel kissed in the Anne Frank House, everyone clapped. There was at least one other time where the audience collectively applauded as a group. It was amazing knowing that I was going through this amazing and depressing experience with fellow Nerdfighters and TFiOS fangirls. My friends and I (there were 9 in total) talked to the girls behind us before it started and during the movie I turned around while sobbing and consoled the girl sitting behind me who was also sobbing. I loved it. Beautiful. Nerfighteria really is a place full of beautiful and awesome people.
Thank you to John Green for writing such an amazing story that touches the hearts of millions, including mine.
