Movie Review: Paper Towns

Paper Towns is a 2015 American mystery comedy-drama film directed by Jake Schreier. It is based on the 2008 novel of the same name by John Green. The film stars Nat Wolff and Cara Delevingne and was released on July 24, 2015 in the United States by 20th Century Fox. The film has grossed more than $50 million worldwide against a budget of $12 million, which makes it a box office success.

The story goes like this: 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.

Paper Towns is of comedy, drama, mystery, romance genre, which runs for approximately 109 minutes. It's rated PG-13 in most countries for some language, drinking, sexuality and partial nudity - all involving teens. The movie was off to a great start, where the characters were introduced as the plot developed. The concept of paper towns was also explained, which is quite interesting. The actors were okay but as far as their looks are concerned, they are not the boy-next-door type of guys and drop-dead-gorgeous type of girls. As for the story itself, it is shallow but quite entertaining. It is also not your typical boy-girl relationship movie, and like The Fault in Our Stars, it had a very sad ending.

RATING: 4 out of 5 STARS


Til then...
