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.
The best teenage movie since the Breakfast Club.
Words can not truly relate how fragile and beautiful this movie is. If any one movie describes a teenagers flight through high school, it is this movie. Brilliant performances from all the actors in this movie (male and female). A great flashback for me during my high school years in Pennsylvania (where the story takes place also). Thanks for such a great movie, that I could relate to on the most personal level.
I LOVE IT!
This was by far the most amazing movie that I have ever seen. Not only are the actors amazing, but so is the meaning. It definitely can relate to several high schoolers today, making them feel more at ease that they aren't the only ones rolling with the punches. Really and truly, I wouldn't rate this 5 stars, I would rate it 100,000,000,000 stars.
a masterpiece, such a beautiful movie
