John Green’s teen romance/drama The Fault in Our Stars did so well last year, the powers that be decided to adapt Paper Towns (Green’s best-selling, award-winning, 2008 book of the same name) with Nat Wolff (who played comic relied Isaac in TFIOS) and Cara Delevingne as the leads and directed by Jake Schreier.
Quentin Jacobsen (Wolff) is rather enamored with his neighbour, Margo Roth Spiegelman (played by Cara Delevingne) and after years of barely even talking to each other Margo sneaks into Q’s room one night and asks him to help her on a special mission. She then goes missing the next day, leaving behind nothing but a trail of cryptic clues that Quentin and his friends set out to decipher.
While the trailer seems to play up the quirky romantic teen…liness of the film the book is slightly more complex. I can’t say Paper Towns was one of my favourite Green novels but it wasn’t a disappointment. The trailer showcases the chemistry of the cast and what is probably going to be an excellent soundtrack.
Set to hit New Zealand Cinemas July 16th.
