Below, Melissa Comerford and Aoife Comerford review Paper Towns
Paper Towns is about a teenage boy named Quentin (Nat Wolff) who’s hopelessly in love with Margo (Cara Delevigne), a girl who loves to explore and is a daredevil. Margo goes on a mission to prank her ex-friends after they betrayed her. After a night of adventure between Margo and Quentin, the boy who has always loved her from afar she disappears. Papers Towns is a mix of drama, romance and it’s also a bit of a thriller.
Nat Wolff portrayed his character as Quentin, with shyness and compassion, whereas Cara Delevigne, portrayed her character, Margo, with adventure, and excitement. My favourite character within the movie would have to be Ben (Austin Abrams). He was a bit overly excited and liked to envision himself as a ‘catch’ but I loved his sense of humour.
Overall I found Paper Towns to be an amazing film. It’s a great choice for anyone who loves drama, romance, a mystery, or even a thrill. Paper Towns will make you smile, awe, cry and laugh.
Five out of five stars.
Paper Towns is an amazing and inspiring film. The story was written by John Green. Paper Towns isn’t your normal tacky movie; it’s full of life and passion.
One of the main characters is Margo Roth played by the amazing actress/model Cara Delevingne. Margo is a wacky and wild character who loves mysteries – they say that “she loved mysteries so much , she became one.” Margo asks”what’s the point of being alive if you don’t at least try to do something remarkable.” With her old best friend Quentin by her side they make a night to remember.
Quentin Jacobsen is played by the old Nickelodeon star Nat Wolff. He portrayed this character with so much courage and integrity. “Q” teaches you not to wait for things to happen and to take a chance. So he and a group of friends set off on a journey across America. Amongst them is one of my favourite characters, Ben. Ben was so funny and full of life and always seemed to add humour to a serious moment.
Overall I would give this film 5/5 stars. It’s amazing and deeply thought-provoking. I would highly recommend this film and would gladly see it again .
