An excellent film about a boy trying to find his way in life while dealing with depression, child abuse, his friend's suicide and the lack of close personal relationships. The acting is great in this film as is the writing. It kind of takes a leap of faith near the end when Charlie has his (final?) mental breakdown and we're left to fill in the blanks about his aunt abusing him. Although, a few scenes later this is all spelled out for us. I highly recommend this to anyone.

This is an amazing movie! I love everything about it! There are few other movies who are on the same level as this one with regard to explaining what it's like to be mentally ill.

"And in that moment, I swear we are infinite"

The story of the film centers on Charlie, a freshman that returns to attend his first year of high school after being admitted into a hospital having suffered from depression. Charlie is played by Logan Lerman who is best known for his role in the 'Percy Jackson' films, as well as 'The Three Musketeers', '3:10 to Yuma', 'Noah', and 'Fury'. After struggling to make new friends, as many of those he knew before he entered the hospital wont speak to him, Charlie attends a football game and says hello to classmate Patrick, played by Ezra Miller. Patrick introduces Charlie to his stepsister Sam, played by Emma Watson.

Like Lerman, both Miller and Watson are terrific young actors and are among the very best of their generation. I remember first seeing Ezra Miller in 2011s, 'We Need To Talk ...

Bloom, Wallflower

Wallflower tells the story of a freshman trying to fit in. The movie succeeds due to great casting and directing. The story line was engaging through out the flick yet it could have included more drama. Whole cast pull out good performances but especially so does Watson who is a perfect fit for her character. The finished package feels like a realistic portrayal of teenage life, unlike many other "teen films". It is remarkably easy to relate with the characters that are well and thoroughly thought out. The plot manages to grab until the end of the run time and doesn't fall flat along the journey. I was hoping for more extravagant cinematography since this at times felt run of the mill. Nevertheless a surprisingly good movie that shines due to cast chemistry.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Charlie(Logan Lerman) is in freshman year where he is not accepted for first, but then two seniors, Sam(Emma Watson) and Patrick(Ezra Miller) help him and introduce him to the real world...

I am not going to an American school, so I can not say something about freshman year or my high-school experience. But still I can find some similarities to the character of Charlie and me. I think nearly everyone who has been through, or still is in teenage can do that. I think it is because the character is written so well, that it's hard to not find some. The other characters are also very well written and developed. See, that is what happens when the author of a book writes a screenplay adapted by the book. Stephen Chbosky! Very well done. After I watched the movie for the first time I read the...

I love this movie. It's amazing. And I'm not just saying this because I'm a die-hard fan of the book. It has a great script, great cast, it's well directed, awesome soundtrack and undeniable strong performances.

Most films that are set in high school fail because they just can't provide a realistic point of view. From everything I've see, this movie does not fall into this trap and I'm very much looking forward to watching it.

I love it, as well.  This is probably the best 'teen' film I've ever seen.  Honest, relatable, heartfelt, and completely entertaining.

I didn't think this would happen with any film, but I'm changing my rating for this movie from 3.5 to 4, and moving it higher on my 2012 Best-Worst list. I was effected by it so much more on my second viewing, and being that I'm in high school I can relate to it 100%. I love this movie, and for those who haven't seen it, you'll probably love it too.
