Bajo la misma estrella top Netflix
Bajo la misma estrella: El drama romántico que quiere quitarle el top 1 a "En las profundidades del Sena"

The Fault in Our Stars is a film adaptation of the book “The Fault in Our Stars” by Josh Green. This romantic drama has sold over 48 million copies worldwide. It tells an emotional love story between Hazel Grace Lancaster and Augustus Waters, two teenagers who meet and fall in love in a support group for young people with cancer. Let’s analyze why this movie is competing to take the top spot from In the Depths of the Seine in the Netflix top 5.

Why is it in the Netflix top 5?

The Fault in Our Stars is trending on Netflix, and although I don’t have a magic wand to explain its success, teen and romantic dramas almost always work. Adding the tragic and tear-jerking aspect of its plot with cancer as a backdrop, it’s almost a guaranteed hit. Its inclusion in the catalog has allowed both new viewers and those wanting to relive this story to “enjoy” it without reading the book. This “sudden” popularity is positioning it to dethrone In the Depths of the Seine from the number one spot in the Netflix top 5.

Synopsis of “The Fault in Our Stars”

Hazel Grace Lancaster, a 16-year-old girl with terminal thyroid cancer, is forced by her parents to attend a support group for young people with serious illnesses. There she meets Augustus Waters, a teenager who lost a leg due to osteosarcoma (bone cancer).

Hazel and Gus quickly embark on an unforgettable journey to Amsterdam to meet Van Houten, a reclusive author whose unfinished novel (An Imperial Affliction) is Hazel’s favorite. Throughout their journey, Hazel and Gus explore their feelings but also face the harsh reality of their illnesses. Together, they learn to live each moment to the fullest and appreciate the small details of life, even in the most difficult circumstances.

Additional details about the movie:

  • Release year: 2014
  • Director: Josh Boone
  • Screenplay: Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber
  • Starring: Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort, Laura Dern, Willem Dafoe
  • Genre: Drama, Romance

Is not only a hit on the Netflix platform but also a film that has deeply resonated with young people. Being a best-seller has helped it compete with In the Depths of the Seine for the top spot in viewership on the streaming giant.

So get your tissues ready, find a comfortable spot on the couch, and enjoy (or regret watching) The Fault in Our Stars on Netflix!
