What I Loved: It's not very often you see a novel become a film and think, 'Yeah, that's exactly how I imagined all of the characters!' However, Paper Towns is filled with an incredible cast and talented actors just as I pictured while reading the book.
Quentin, or Q, is played by Nat Wolff (The Fault in Our Stars, Stuck in Love, New Year's Eve). Nat is the next big thing. He's hilarious, handsome and talented.
Cara Delevingne (super model and up-and-coming actress) is the perfect Margo. She's gorgeous without even trying. I'm very excited to see how her career develops.
The other cast members did a great job with their premiere roles.
For the most part, the movie brings the book to life, which is all a devoted reader can truly ask for these days.
Also, there is a special cameo during the movie, so pay attention!
What I Didn't: This movie follows the book extremely closely. Which is why I understand the presence of some "bad" reviews...
Paper Towns is based on a Young Adult book. If you neither read the book, or are a young adult, you may fall into the category of movie-goers whom will not appreciate this film. However, I still urge you to see this movie because of the immaculate casting and the phenomenal soundtrack featuring Santigold, Vance Joy, Vampire Weekend, Saint Motel, HAIM, and many more.
As always with film adaptations, there are a few scenes missing or changed from the book, but that is to be expected. Also, I believe the script should have incorporated more lines from the book, as John Green wrote it beautifully.
Luckily for us, John Green's debut novel, Looking For Alaska, is going to become a movie as well! Now if only John could write a few more books for us too.
