Based on a YA novel and certainly not meant for my demographic, I found myself moved quite a bit by the story. The talent of Shailene Woodley took what could have been a sentimental miscue and turned it into an emotional powerhouse that had me tear up… I admit it. I feel good about myself for recognizing the beauty in a story meant for someone half of my age. I also enjoyed the unexpected appearance of Mike Birbiglia as a group leader. Every movie should be so wise.
