The director of the film is Josh Boone ("Stuck in Love"), working from a script by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber. Their screenplay "(500) Days of Summer" was pretty sharp in its depiction of a relationship built on a foundation that isn't really there. "The Fault in Our Stars" works differently; the love is rock-solid, unassailable and grand. At this stage, Woodley's direct, open, emotionally plangent acting is a full step or two above that of co-star Elgort. Boone's technique, not helped by the editing, is prone to clunky reaction shots of young people in love and smiling at each other. There's not a lot of easy ebb-and-flow on screen here; points are made, obstacles are met, or not, and there's too much dead air around the dialogue exchanges.
