Celebrated young adult fiction author John Green, who has reached quite the cult-following status, has another film in store after box-office success The Fault In Our Stars. Paper Towns is yet again another coming-of-age film that’s much lighter than the heavy drama of The Fault In Our Stars, and it tells about the story of a teenage guy named Quentin (played by Natt Wolff) who falls in love with his mysterious neighbor after he takes her into a reckless, spontaneous adventure around town. The plot thickens as Margo, the neighbor who is played by current Hollywood ‘it girl’ and supermodel-turned-actress Cara Delevingne, suddenly disappears. Quentin then starts his quest to trace her steps and reunite with his newfound love.
While book-to-movie films are always quite tricky, director Jake Schreier does an excellent job in portraying that “John Green atmosphere” he has in his fictional books. Cara Delevingne’s first major acting role is excellent, and she is as enigmatic and effervescent in her role as she is as a model. Great romantic movie for the young and the young at heart, which is highly recommended you see over at movie2k.
