Posted on July 26, 2015


Paper Towns – Based on John Green’s novel (he of The Fault In Our Stars fame). Quentin (Nat Wolf) has romanticized next door neighbor Margo (Cara Delevingne) since they first met as 10 year olds. Now high school seniors, he has goals and plays it safe. She’s adventurous, loves mystery and barely notices him. Until one night, she needs his help in getting revenge on her ex-boyfriend. They connect. Next day Margo disappears.

Q and best friends Radar (Justice Smith) and Ben (Austin Abrams) with Margo’s best friend Lacey (Halston Sage) go all out to find her by interpreting the clues she left behind. Ben (Austin Abrams) thinks Quentin’s mom is hot which tells you a lot about his personality. Radar is hen pecked by girlfriend Angela (Jaz Sinclair).

It’s about good, normal teens growing up and learning about themselves. One of the most fun scenes is where they dance to Pokémon theme. Overall, it’s pretty something.
