This isn’t exactly John Green’s best work
Starring: Nat Wolff and Cara Delevingne
Plot: 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
Remarks: I was really taken aback by the brilliance that was The Fault In Our Stars. It had a beautiful story, tear-jerking moments and you left with an appreciation for life so I was really excited to see what John Green would bring this time around as the hype grew and grew for Paper Towns. Unfortunately, Paper Towns was a complete disappointment. I think Cara Delevingne is beautiful and I get the hype around her but she is not a strong actress at all. That paired with the fact that this film didn’t have much of a storyline was a disaster. Also, don’t expect to see Cara much in the middle of the film as Quentin goes on an adventure to find his “one true love.” Yes, it sounds incredibly romantic and the film actually starts off well, but the twist at the end of the film completely ruins the film. The supporting cast actually had a more interesting story than the leads in this film which is totally bizarre. In all honesty, there is nothing great about this film and I am so disappointed that John Green released this after the incredibly beautiful The Fault In Our Stars.
Paper Towns releases August 21st, 2015.
