“Paper Towns” Movie Review

3.5-Watertowers Movie Reviews(Adolescent Angst)

One day when Quentin (Nat Wolff) was about 9 years old Margo (Cara Delevingne) moved across the street.

paper townsQ fell in love and he and Margo became fast friends almost immediately. But, as life goes sometimes, Q and Margo drifted apart, and by the time they were in high school, Margo was the most popular girl in school and Q was…..well, Q…..boring……with a life plan that most teens his age would snooze at.

One night, Margo climbs into Q’s bedroom window (as she did 9 years ago….) and asks to borrow his van. She was on a revenge mission, and needed the van and most likely a get-away driver.

Q accepts the challenge and winds up having the best night of his life. Margo tells him that THIS is what life is about….not his boring ass life plans.

The next day, Margo disappears.

The police are called but her parents are used to this (she has run away 5 times before) and, since she is now 18, they decide to let her go. BUT…..Margo left clues for Q regarding her whereabouts…..he deciphers them and, with his buddies in tow, they take off on a road trip to find Margo.

“Paper Towns” is an interesting movie based on a book that Kristen read years ago by John Green. It refers to fake towns put on maps to identify copying of the maps by competitors (at least according to the movie / book, because all I found on Google were references to this movie / book).

Teens would love it…we liked it, even though Kristen said it was “depressing” we thought otherwise. Age differences….different perspectives on life.

Go to IMDb for more information. We watched this on Xfinity.
