About the Movie
A funny and touching coming-of-age story, THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER is a modern classic that captures the dizzying highs and crushing lows of high school. Freshman Charlie (Logan Lerman) is a perpetual wallflower until he falls under the spell of the beautiful, free-spirited Sam (Emma Watson) and her fearless stepbrother, Patrick (Ezra Miller); together, the trio navigates love, loss, fear, hope - and the quest for the perfect song - in this unforgettable adaptation of Stephen Chbosky’s beloved novel.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Regardless of the viewer's proximity to his or her own high school experience, "Perks" seems to get it right, precisely because it's not about a specific time or place.
Fresh: "Like real teenagers, Watson and Miller convincingly move from glowing objects of desire to comic relief to deeply troubled human beings."
Fresh: While most films about teenage life tend to trade on a nifty hook, and sometimes even a plot, The Perks of Being a Wallflower chimes in as an unusually incisive, character-driven ramble through the inevitable awkwardness of teen life.
Fresh: I think for a first film this guy who wrote the book and has adapted it for the screen has done a terrific job and I really found these characters sympathetic.
My favorite book became my favorite movie
This is a touching movie which really shows the way it is to be a teen. However, it is definitely a strong PG-13 -- not PG by any standards.
A great movie, but why can't we rent it?!! I don't want to buy it, make it rentable!
