An average movie

Honestly, it is not the kind of movies I would have expected to watch with the filmclub. Indeed, it is a commercial feature adapted from a popular young adult novel so we hardly seemed to be the targeted audience. So, it was definitely a daring choice but, eventually, I thought it was not bad at all. Indeed, the relationship between those two teenagers was really touching and convincing thanks to the amazing performances by Shailene Woodley (the new rising star) and Ansel Egort (never heard of the guy before). Unfortunately, pretty much everything else in the movie was at best decent and sometimes even rather worthless. For example, the way they make you think during 3/4 of the duration that the girl will die but, suddenly, the roles are reversed and she is actually the one surviving, that's just a poor gimmick to add an extra layer of drama. The worst was probably the few scenes involving the writer which were just contrived and rather cringe-inducing. So, as a result, you had one of the most beautiful and emotional love-stories involving teenagers I have ever seen but those kids were unfortunately stuck into the gimmicks and tricks of your average Hollywood melodrama. Still, it was a decent drama and I think it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.

6/10
