I have to admit it right here and now. I have not seen The Fault in Our Stars. I am not looking to cry these days maybe I will get to it eventually. But when I realized I had a chance to review Paper Towns through Fox Home Entertainment Insiders, I couldn't wait. I knew nothing about the movie other than there were two young people on the cover and it said from the makers of The Fault In Our Stars.
Going into the first 8-12 minutes I was completely invested in this movie about Quentin or Quinn and his neighbor Margo. They were really good friends as kids until one moment changed everything for her. She suddenly became adventurous going out at night on "investigations" and they drift apart. Quinn has loved her forever and knows what he wants in life. He's got it all set in his mind. Graduate, college, doctor of oncology (of course), marriage, kids and he's a happy man. Margo on the other hand has no idea what she is doing tomorrow let alone planning her life.
Margo needs Quinn for one of her adventures and it changes his life. It changes the way he thinks and lights a fire in him that he didn't even know was missing.
When she disappears Quinn become the adventure, taking off on a road trip with friends to find Margo through clues she's left for him. What will happen if he finds her? You will have to watch the movie to find out.
I love this different coming of age story. I enjoyed watching Quinn and his friends. Loved Margo and her antics and believe everyone needs a little bit of Margo and a little bit of Quinn to lead a truly happy life.
I've just done my first Dubsmash. Watch me do a Margo line here
