The large cast was sprinkled with stars such as Shailene Woodley as Beatrice Prior, Theo James as Four, Kate Winslet as Jeanine Matthews, Ansel Elgort as Caleb Prior, and Miles Teller as Peter.

“I really liked the movie and I had expected it to be an average movie but it turned out great,” said Lily Retford, 9.

Shailene Woodley has costarred with Miles Teller in the book-turned-movie “The Spectacular Now.” In another book soon to be movie, The Fault in Our Stars, Woodley plays the love interest of Ansel Elgort.

   The movie had mixed reviews with some people agreeing that the movie did not follow the book very well. On the other hand, people believe that the movie was a success and are anxious for the sequel.
