‘Paper Towns’ is smart, but has paper-thin delivery

“It’s a paper town… paper houses and paper people.”

Cara Delevingne’s character is spot-on when she makes this observation early in the film. It turns out that most of the movie’s characters and relationships also feel that way; paper-thin.

Building on the success of last year’s heart-wrenching ‘The Fault in Our Stars’, this second film adaptation of a John Green novel promises to be just as meaningful.

And it certainly is. As a coming-of-age film, ‘Paper Towns’ is inspiring with its messages and achieves what it sets out to do; you do leave the cinema reflecting on several important lessons about life.

However, the distracted and shallow execution of the film makes the whole adventure feel uninteresting, even if we do get the point of it all.
