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: In spite of its downer of an opening act, the film achieves instant lift-off the very moment Charlie falls in with the out crowd.
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.
My favorite book became my favorite movie
Very Well Done
This is one of my favorite films of 2012. The three main actors did an amazing job and I was sad when the movie ended, only because I wanted to continue watching their stories unfold. There were many similarities between the story and my years in high school which made me feel more connected to the film. I have highly recommend this movie to my family and friends and I do the same to you.
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.
