'The Fault In Our Stars' Is Coming To Netflix

The romantic tragedy will be available to stream from the 13th January and it is the perfect choice for those nights where you just need to lie on your sofa with your duvet and some ice cream.

Based on John Green's 2012 book of the same name the film follows Hazel Grace Lancaster (Shailene Woodley), who is a 16-year-old cancer patient.

Hazel soon meets and falls in love with Gus Waters (Ansel Elgort) from her cancer support group, due to the circumstances the pair meet Hazel feels that Gus really understands her.

One of the things they have in common is their love of books, especially Grace's favourite, 'An Imperial Affliction' by Peter Van Houten.

When Gus secures an invitation to meet the author, he and Hazel head off on an adventure to Amsterdam together.
