Director Jake Schreier’s Paper Town is a charming coming-of-age film about two high school seniors, Quentin (Nat Wolff), who has his life planned out, and Margo (Cara Delevingne), who is playing the role of the “it” girl, but hasn’t a clue of who she is or what to do with her life.
Neighbors since childhood, straight-laced Quentin is in love with Margo and, when she disappears, follows clues to where she may be.
The cast includes some talented newcomers, including Quentin’s best friends (Austin Abrams and Justin Smith) and their girlfriends (Halston Sage and Jaz Sinclair).
Writers Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber have woven a clever tale that’s fun to watch.
FYI, a Paper Town is a fake place cartographers put on their maps to protect them from having someone copying their work and claiming it’s theirs.
I give Paper Town a 3.8 out of 5.
