Movie Review: Paper Towns

Adapted from the bestselling novel by author John Green, PAPER TOWNS is a coming-of-age story centering on Quentin and his enigmatic neighbor Margo, who loved mysteries so much she became one. After taking him on an all-night adventure through their hometown, Margo suddenly disappears - leaving behind cryptic clues for Quentin to decipher. The search leads Quentin and his quick-witted friends on an exhilarating adventure that is equal parts hilarious and moving. Ultimately, to track down Margo, Quentin must find a deeper understanding of true friendship - and true love.

An adorable, unassuming and quietly affecting teen flick that capitalizes on well-written dialogue for a film in this genre.
Paper Towns was well-acted, nicely shot and heart-warming movie. The hype for this movie was intense as teens all across the globe awaited another movie adaptation from the bestselling author, John Green. The road trip is highlight of the film, offering some good laughs and a glimpse of high school bonding at its best. Delevingne manages to hold her own and it's the chemistry between Quentin and his friends on this last adventure together before graduating and going their separate ways that makes this film so enjoyable to watch. It's a clever, engaging and highly commended teen flick to watch this season.

My Verdict:  4/5

  1. They changed more about the Paper Towns movie than they did for The Fault in Our Stars adaptation.
