CAST & CREW
Paper Town, the lovable novel by John Green, is now been made into a movie. The character of Margo in the book was interesting and here, in this movie adaptation too, it is good.
Plot: Here he is a school guy who is nurturing a crush for many years on the most beautiful girl ever (and Delevingne is surely is!) in his campus. The boy doesn’t see the girl for nine years and one fine day the girl seeks the help of the boy. This is to take revenge of her enemies. What happens next is the rest of the story.
Wolff is an actor who surely has the ability to deliver good performance. Delevingne has given lot of life into her character. She has an elusive magnetism throughout the portions in which she is not around. And that’s where she succeeds as an artist.
Justice Smith comes as a silent and charming African-American boy and he does a good job. He is indeed a promising actor. Austin Abrams essays his humorous role with ease. He succeeds in tickling your humorous bones. Even Jaz Sinclair and Halston Sage have done a great job. The friendship between the characters Quentin, Ben and Radar is dealt with the same fervor as the love that Quentin has for Margo. This is a teen drama all the way. Jake Schreier, who has helmed direction, has done well with the pace of the movie. Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, the screenwriters, have worked well with the humorous dialogues which are so realistic.
Frendship between guys is seen at its best in this movie. These school guys are very well aware that after moving out of school they have to maintain friendship through social media. Letting go is a subject, which should be carefully dealt with and this film also deals with it. Soundtrack of this movie is excellent.
On the flip side, the film could have captured the poetic touch of the novel to a considerable degree.
Verdict: An outright teenage drama.
