The IndePendent CriTic ViSits "PaPer ToWns"

Paper Towns" is a coming-of-age story centering on Quentin and his enigmatic neighbor Margo, 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.

During a publicity tour for the July 24th nationwide release of "Paper Towns," The Independent Critic had the chance to sit down with "Paper Towns" author John Green and two of the film's stars, Nat Wolff and Halston Sage to discuss the film.



Indy Film Fest Arrives Back at IMA From July 16-25, 2015

While it's arguable that Heartland Film Festival is still the festival for which Indianapolis is truly known, the Indy Film Fest embodies everything that you could hope for from a true indie film festival. After 12 years, the Indy Film Fest is still a volunteer-driven organization that embraces the best and brightest filmmakers locally, nationally and internationally. Despite the challenges of being volunteer-driven, Indy Film Fest is a year-round effort largely thanks to its bold, and quietly bonkers, executive director Craig Mince. Mince has served up such creative ideas as Cereal Cinema, Roving Cinema, Film to Fork and many other creative and inspired ways to promote films and filmmakers to Indiana moviegoers.


Schumer's "Trainwreck" Impossible to Not Watch

Schumer's the kind of woman we all know. We've all got one Amy Schumer in our life, or at least we do if we're lucky. She's bold. She's confident. She's sexual. She's pretty fucked up. She's hilarious. She's actually pretty damn sweet. She's smart as hell. She doesn't really give a rat's ass if she fits the Hollywood definition of beauty which is, let's be honest, a pretty messed up definition of beauty.
