Nat Wolff and Cara Delevingne in Paper Towns (2015)Quentin “Q” Jacobsen (Wolff) lives across the street to Margo Roth Spiegelman (Delevingne) in a subdivision, Jefferson Park, at Orlando, Florida. She is a childhood friend from whom he has drifted over nine years after they discovered the corpse of a local man, Robert Joyner (Lane Lovegrove), who killed himself after his divorce. Unbeknownst to Margo, Quentin has been infatuated with her since they became neighbors. After reaching adolescence, Margo becomes one of the popular girls, with an adventurous reputation, at Jefferson Park High School.[b] In contrast, Quentin is kind and unassertive, but unpopular among his peers. His friends are other outcasts, Benjamin “Ben” Starling (Austin Abrams), and Marcus “Radar” Lincoln (Justice Smith).Nat Wolff and Cara Delevingne in Paper Towns (2015)One night, Margo climbs through Quentin’s window and recruits him for an all-night, revenge road trip. Margo discovers that her boyfriend, Jason “Jase” Worthington (Griffin Freeman), was unfaithful with one of her friends, Rebecca “Becca” Arrington (Caitlin Carver). After buying supplies, they pull humiliating pranks on Jason and Rebecca, and their friends, including Margo’s best friend, Lacey Pemberton (Halston Sage). Margo accuses Lacey of not telling her about the affair. (It is revealed later that Lacey was unaware of the affair until she was pranked). The event gives Quentin hope that he finally has a chance to develop a closer relationship with Margo. He begins to learn how to assert himself and to take chances.Cara Delevingne in Paper Towns (2015)The next day Margo does not come to school, and after a few days, some consider her missing, others just conclude she left for an undisclosed location. Margo’s parents will not report her missing to the police since she has run away from home repeatedly before, and they believe their daughter will return eventually. After seeing a recently attached Woody Guthrie poster on her bedroom wall, Quentin realizes that Margo deliberately left clues for him as to where she would be going. Benjamin and Marcus start searching for other clues in hopes of finding Margo so that Quentin can confess his feelings to her. Quentin bribes Margo’s sister Ruthie (Meg Crosbie) so that they can look for the clues to Margo’s whereabouts in her room.Nat Wolff and Cara Delevingne in Paper Towns (2015)When Quentin, Benjamin, and Marcus attend a party at Jason’s house, Lacey argues with Rebecca over her betrayal of Margo with Jason. Because of her loyalty to Margo and her revulsion towards Rebecca and Jason’s promiscuity, Lacey leaves in disgust. Quentin finds Lacey in a bathroom and gets to know her, discovering that, beneath her superficial exterior, she is actually an intelligent and compassionate person, and they become friends. After finding more clues, Quentin starts to put them together and is led with his friends to an old gift store at an abandoned strip mall. They find a map that Margo used, and discover that she has been hiding in Agloe, a paper town located in the State of New York. Quentin and his friends, including Marcus’s girlfriend Angela (Jaz Sinclair), begin a two-day road trip to find Margo, hoping to be home in time for their prom after they find her. They bond on the way, as Benjamin and Lacey are going to the prom together; Marcus and Angela consummate their relationship.Nat Wolff and Cara Delevingne in Paper Towns (2015)When they do not find Margo where they expect her to be, Quentin stays while the others return home with his car. He finds Margo on the street and admits his affection for her, but she does not feel the same way. She ran away from home to escape her dysfunctional family life, in an attempt to figure out who she is. She left the clues to let Quentin know that she is safe, not to invite him to follow her. Margo remains in Agloe. Quentin books a bus ticket home and they share a farewell kiss. Before he leaves, Margo tells him that she has been in contact with Ruthie since leaving Orlando. Returning to Orlando, Quentin enjoys the company of his friends at the prom. After graduation, he continues spending time with them throughout the summer before they all leave for college.Nat Wolff and Cara Delevingne in Paper Towns (2015)Paper Towns will come across as a witty, yet touching case of a ‘lost and found’. Much of it is spent in searching for the ‘lost’, a liberating process that frees its seekers from every question that unfolds in the wake of a previous other, but the ‘found’, though never really answers any of the previous questions, will deliver a surprisingly satisfying, and never less of a rewarding, answer.

In Seattle, Light Turner, while doing other high school students’ homework in exchange for money, encounters a notebook marked “Death Note” as it falls from the sky next to him, alongside the rain. Placing the book in his bag, he attempts to stop Kenny, an oft-held-back student, from assaulting Mia Sutton, getting knocked out in the process. Upon waking, Light is sent to detention for doing other students’ homework, their papers having been knocked from his bag. In detention, while the supervisor leaves on an errand, Light encounters the death god Ryuk after reading some of the Death Note’s rules, leaving him in a state of terror. Believing himself to be dreaming, Light absentmindedly puts Kenny’s name into the Death Note after Ryuk pressures him to. Requesting he write a cause of death, Light writes “decapitation”. Looking out the window, Light witnesses Kenny’s death, shocking him.At home, Light, after a conversation with his father about justice, and upon learning of the rules of the Death Note from Ryuk, writes the name of the man who ran down his mother in the Death Note, who had gone unprosecuted due to his criminal connections. Elsewhere, the man is killed after falling upon his steak knife at a restaurant. The following morning, Light’s father receives news of this. Despite previous comments regarding the matter, he is glad of the man’s death.The following day, in the gym, Mia approaches Light, asking him what the book (Death Note) he’s holding is. Light brings Mia to the school library and tells her about Ryuk and the Death Note, demonstrating its power on a man holding his family hostage nearby. The two read through the Death Note, noting that previous users had used it for either profit or personal revenge. Mia and Light decide to kill criminals worldwide to improve society under the guise of a “god”, which Light decides to name Kira, being Russian for light, as well as Japanese for “Killer”. Upon having their first victims, the contents of the “Top 10 World’s Most Wanted” list, sign “Kira” in perfect Japanese on their walls, Mia and Light leave the world believing Kira to be Japanese.Kira becomes loved by the public and the majority of law enforcement officials. Mia and Light become lovers. In Japan, the enigmatic detective known only as “L” successfully deduced that Kira is a citizen of Seattle, having leaked information about obscure Japanese criminals to the Seattle Police Department, and having identified the third person killed by Light with the Death Note as having been killed by Kira. L, alongside his assistant/father figure Watari, travel to Seattle.As a fan of the Japanese films this new one is actually good, if u have not seen it yet watch it and judge it for yourselves regardless of what others say. I enjoyed it very much.
