Paper Towns (2015) Rated PG-13

After an all-night adventure, Quentin’s crush disappears, leaving a trail of clues to follow. Based on the book by John Green. Starring Nat Wolff, Cara Delevingne, and Austin Abrams.

This film has an interesting story, but there is so much that isn’t explained. The acting is good, the direction and cinematography are wonderful, but the story just doesn’t pull me. It’s a predictable teen drama. Two friends, who are not remarkable, have one fabulous last night together as a goodbye to their friendship. Then, the girl disappears – now you would think her family and friends would be up in arms, but alas, nobody cares except for Quentin. So, while the family doesn’t care that the girl disappears, Quentin discovers clues to find her, and then we are off on an adventure. The film is coming of age story, but the ending just leaves you hanging. That, plus the lack of adults around, makes this film not worth a watch.
