‘Paper Town’: the term given to places cartographers would make up on their maps to catch out rivals making copies.
Finding a naked dude on Googe Maps street view is the modern day equivalent…until now…“There’s totally a town in Canada called Gaylord!”
…because it’s also the central metaphor to the latest John Green novel getting the big screen treatment. Flickering Myth Staff Writer and self-declared Nerdfighter (it’s a John Green thing) Kat Kourbeti caught up with the author, the film’s lead actor Nat Wolff and director Jake Schreier to chat about the movie, the next potential John Green adaptation, and Pokemon. It makes sense once you’ve seen the film. Enjoy.

Adapted from the bestselling novel by author John Green (“The Fault in Our Stars”), PAPER TOWNS is a coming-of-age story centring on Quentin (Nat Wolff) and his enigmatic neighbour Margo (Cara Delevingne), who loved mysteries so much she became one. After taking him on an all-night adventure through their hometown, Margo suddenly disappears–leaving behind cryptic clues for Quentin to decipher. The search leads Quentin and his quick-witted friends on an exhilarating adventure that is equal parts hilarious and moving. Ultimately, to track down Margo, Quentin must find a deeper understanding of true friendship–and true love.
