We’ve had several months to recover from the emotional impact of The Fault in Our Stars, the movie adaptation of John Green’s eponymous young adult novel. But if your tear ducts are in need of some exercise, these deleted scenes from the movie’s DVD version should get you back in the spirit of sorrow.
The first scene offers a montage of the monotony of illness: the football games whose outcomes become confoundingly trivial and the fresh air that tastes fresher if only because it’s in limited supply. The second offers a glimpse into supporting character Isaac’s (Nat Wolff’s) post-surgery recovery. He and Hazel (Shailene Woodley) discuss quandaries that only teenagers in their position would understand, namely how heartbreak can be more disabling than physical disability itself.
John Green fans will be pleased with the news that filming for his next movie adaptation, Paper Towns, began yesterday in North Carolina. In the novel, a New York Times bestseller and winner of the Edgar Award for Best Young Adult Mystery, a teenaged boy searches for his long-time love, who has gone missing from their Florida town. Starring Cara Delevingne and Fault in Our Stars alumnus Nat Wolff, Paper Towns is slated for release in June 2015.
