Not so much a film as a visual essay, exquisitely directed and photographed (by Sacha Vierny)... Difficult to watch but well worthwhile for those willing to be challenged.
Quality survives. Leonard Ma
The movie is in some uncharted waters, because it shows what it's like for two men to feel that kind of longing and passion for each other, and people aren't used to that. No one movie is going to turn things around, but they can be building blocks. That could be this movie's legacy.
Shailene Woodley is reason enough to see 'The Fault in Our Stars.'
She's quite wonderful in that role. She's totally convincing as the mother who has to walk a fine line in raising that little boy. She's a terrific actress; there's never any sense that she's acting. She commits to any character she plays.
