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.

I really love this movie. The book is one of those things you appreciate the most at a certain age, or a certain point in your life, and I think the movie is no different. However, if there was one thing I didn't like about the film, it's that at times Patrick could be a little....too flamboyant. In the book, I didn't even find out that he was gay until it said so, but in the movie you can tell right off the bat that he is. I don't know if that can be considered a "flaw" but I just didn't picture Patrick in that way, Ezra Miller did a great job nonetheless, and if I hadn't read the book first I probably wouldn't have minded. Also, I wish that they had kept in the scene where Charlie reads the poem at the Christmas party.

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...

Adorable realism.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower is an adorable movie. It is so adorable because it is so relatable, capturing the good and bad of high school in a nut shell. Everyone knows what it was like to go to school (I hope), and have experienced what is portrayed so delicately in this film.
I read the book to this film, and I must say that the book is a lot more explicit, but it's beautiful.
The author of the book actually directed this film, which really surprised me; you don't see that too often.
The starring trio are the high point of this movie:
Logan Lerman is good as Charlie the misfit and it's great to see Emma Watson in something other than Harry Potter (not that she wasn't good in those films). Ezra Miller is phenomenal. He has solidified one hundred percent that he is a great young a...

On the Outside Looking In

Rarely does a cast come together as well as they did in Perks of Being a Wallflower. When you get such amazing performances out of young actors - it makes me think that the future of Hollywood is in good hands. Logan Lerman, Emma Watson and Ezra Miller all give outstanding performances - and the supporting cast, from Paul Rudd as the inspirational English teacher, Tom Savini as the put-upon shop teacher and Dyland McDermott and Kate Walsh as dad and mom - all work in smaller parts. Mae Whitman, Johnny Simmons and Nina Dobrev also shine in supporting roles.

This is a coming-of-age story that doesn't skirt around some tough issues. Sure you have the pressure of navigating the minefield of High School - but things like relationships, drug use, dealing with grief and trauma, suicide and ho...

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.
