Our Score
The consequences of a nerdy Florida teen's infatuation with the free-spirited girl across the street shape this adaptation of the Young Adult fiction bestseller by John Green. Nat Wolff's protagonist is far too uptight and well-behaved to hang out with Cara Delevingne's startlingly independent night-owl, but the one evening when she does call on his help for a revenge spree against an errant beau proves a pivotal moment in his deepening affections - and the catalyst for her sudden subsequent disappearance. Credibility isn't the movie's strongest suit, from these squeaky-clean plushly-moneyed teenage lives in general to Delevingne's absurdly precious Whitman-reading dream girl in particular, but there are some useful insights into the downside of youthful romantic obsession. Meanwhile, Wolff's coterie of high-school chums are amiable enough to warrant comparison with those of the John Hughes era. They leave us feeling these too are high school days worth remembering.

Summary

The next day she disappears without trace, but he discovers she has left him a series of clues, which he and his friends follow in the hope of finding her.
