    Saw this last night with my family, and it may have been the most genuinely "enjoyable" movie I've seen this year because I had no real expectations. It's typical YA/John Green stuff, with teenagers that are too smart for their own good, and a bit of the Manic Pixie Dream Girl trope, but I thought it was well acted, and it was honestly pretty fun just watching these kids explore this situation. The message can be a little heavy handed and childish from a more adult perspective, as they touch on the typical "don't conform/become part of the system" points you tend to get in movie about teenagers trying to "dream big" and all that, but it takes a bit of a turn away from from that and I took some different meanings home with me. It had my family and me all talking about it on the car ride home, so that's definitely a success on the film makers' part.
