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 that these too are high-school days worth remembering.


A teenager enjoys a night of adventures with a mysterious girl, whom he has been fascinated with since childhood. 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. Romantic mystery based on the novel by John Green, starring Nat Wolff and Cara Delevingne.
