The Fault in Our Stars

Synopsis: Hazel Grace Lancaster (Shailene Woodley), a 16-year-old cancer patient, meets and falls in love with Gus Waters (Ansel Elgort), a similarly afflicted teen from her cancer support group. Hazel feels that Gus really understands her. They both share the same acerbic wit and a love of books, especially Grace's touchstone, "An Imperial Affliction" by Peter Van Houten. When Gus scores an invitation to meet the reclusive author, he and Hazel embark on the adventure of their brief lives.

DOCTOR:

She's depressed.

HAZEL:

I'm not depressed!

Off her look, CUT TO:

QUICK SEQUENCE, which play over:

HAZEL (V.O.)

The booklets and web sites always

list depression as a side effect of

cancer...

- A SHOPPING MALL. Filled with TEENAGE GIRLS - gossipping,

laughing - being teenage girls, basically. And here's Hazel.

With her Mom. And her oxygen tank. Just another day.

3.

HAZEL (V.O.)

Depression's not a side effect of

cancer...

- HAZEL'S LIVING ROOM. She sits watching game shows in the

middle of the afternoon. Her Mom brings her a sandwich. A

glass of water. And then a whole host of prescription meds.

Hazel eyes them with indifference.

HAZEL (V.O.)

... it's a side effect of dying.

- A STARBUCKS. Hazel sits alone reading a dog-eared, heavily

underlined copy of a novel ("An Imperial Affliction" by Peter

Van Houten). She only looks up when distracted by a squeal of

delight. A YOUNG GUY has lifted a YOUNG GIRL over his

shoulder playfully. He spins her around. Hazel watches a beat

- goes back to the book.

HAZEL (V.O.)

Which is what was happening to me.

And we CUT BACK TO:

INT DOCTOR'S OFFICE - SAME

Frannie continues to talk to the doctor. Hazel continues to

dangle her feet.

FRANNIE:

... some days she won't even get

out of bed.

The Doctor scratches his beard, thinking.
