It’s very easy to point at a movie like The Fault in our Stars and accuse it of being a manipulative affair with no desire other than to see how many times its largely female audience will burst into tears. And to be completely frank, some of that is certainly true, but it’d be unfair to dismiss the film as this decade’s A Walk to Remember.
