PAPER TOWNS (2015)

A young man and his friends embark upon the road trip of their lives to find the missing girl next door. --IMDB

One of the better teen movies - it avoids coarse grossness and avoids a cliched ending. The teen actors put in good performances and come across as authentic, flawed and vulnerable. The ground that is covered in the story is typical of coming-of-age movies. But the premise is interesting and there are enough moments of depth to keep one's interest from flagging - although there are a few moments where that happens. A good message that is handled with a reasonable amount of subtlety, but the voice-over narration is a bit excessive. A solid entry into the teen genre.
