Quentin (Nat Wolff) is a successful student approach the end of his high school years. Along with his friends Ben (Austin Abrams) and 'Radar' (Justice Smith), Quentin (or Q) lives an unremarkable life until the night his neighbour and childhood friend Margo (Cara Delevingne) sneaks into his room and challenges him to accompany her on an extraordinary night of revenge when wrongs will be righted. Following their night, Margo disappears and Q decides that tracking her down is the most important thing he can do before life changes for all of them.
Based on the novel by John Green, Paper Towns is a coming of age film with a delightful cast, engaging story and unpredictable ending. The performances balance the confidence and awkwardness that comes with adolescence and the young cast bring to life characters that, although they don't have a lot of depth, are full of charm. Although the film feels familiar, the quirky story brings a refreshing originality to it. There is some lovely dialogue with many references to the beginnings and endings that accompany the end of high school with the main characters on the verge of going their separate ways. (ME)
