Paper Towns: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers

We are one of the few lucky ones to see Paper Towns before anyone else last night. It was great as we are all greeted by John Green in a short clip before the start of the movie. We also got exclusive merchandise all coming from 20th Century Fox and some lucky people won Paper Towns books in the contest. It is always an awesome experience as the film didn't disappoint us even we haven't read the book yet. 

Quentin (Nat Wolff) knew that he likes his neighbor Margo (Cara Delevingne) since the first day he saw her. They became childhood friends and easily get along with each other, but as they grow up, their path goes on different ways. However, one night, Margo enters the window of Quentin's room and begs him to experience an all-night adventure. But unfortunately, Margo disappears the next day and just leaves clues behind for Quentin to decode. Soon, together with his best friends, goes for an incredible road-trip and track down the girl who captured his heart. 

After John Green's hit "The Fault in Our Stars" last year, he is now back with his latest work in Paper Towns. Don't worry as you don't need to bring extra tissues with you along the film. You can just simply sit back and relax and get along with its compelling story. It is like reminiscing your teen years, enjoying time with your friends and makes you go out of your comfort zone to try new things. The film is absorbing enough for everyone and simply feel each scene. It also shows what can you possibly do for love; are you willing to cross the boundaries to find your happiness?

Credit all the actors in making this movie charming as possible. At first, Nat Wolff seems not to be a perfect choice, but he proves that he is up to the challenge and delivered well. Cara Delevingne shines even in a short amount of time. She is simply adorable and impresses us easily in the beginning but eventually missed due to the film's story. What we loved the most is Nat's best friends played by Austin Abrams and Justin Smith, who provided color to the picture and drop the necessary humor the film needs. There is also a cameo that might surprise you just like the audience did who screamed their hearts out last night, but we won't tell as it's up for you to find out. 

Overall, Paper Towns is a journey filled with mysteries to solve, characters to admire and a striking story to follow. It is also a unique tale in which you'll wish that you have a lot of time to spend it with your friends and have an adventure of your own. An inspiring film teen film you all shouldn't miss.

It was such a delight to watch with friends and with hilarious moments such as bursting into a nostalgic song together, it's a joy to sit down and become immersed in the world of John Green.
