SUN­DAY THE FAULT IN OUR STARS

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - FRONT PAGE -

8.30PM, TEN An adap­ta­tion of the young-adult novel phe­nom­e­non by John Green that hits the tear ducts of its tar­get au­di­ence like a weep-seek­ing mis­sile. While this teen ro­mance is doomed from the out­set, it also pre­pares view­ers for the fall to come with sur­pris­ing warmth, wit and pos­i­tiv­ity. Shai­lene Wood­ley ( Di­ver­gent) plays Hazel, a sharp-minded 17-year-old long di­ag­nosed with lung cancer. The power of the movie owes much to yet an­other pitch-per­fect lead per­for­mance from her.

★★★

writer-di­rec­tor Sarah Pol­ley. A slyly shape-chang­ing story cen­tres on a dis­tracted young wife (Williams) who be­comes ob­sessed with a sin­gle man who lives down the street. As funny as it is mov­ing, with some wholly un­ex­pected twists as well. Co-stars Seth Ro­gen and Sarah Sil­ver­man.
