The Perks of Being a Wallflower

ComingSoon
17 October 2013
  • Excerpt: It's the first day of high school for Charlie (Logan Lerman) having spent the summer in the hospital after an incident with a friend. He can't seem to make any friends until he meets half-siblings Patrick and Sam (Ezra Miller, Emma Watson), who pull him into their web of weird friends. An impressionable youth, Charlie is immediately awed by how the group has bonded over their eccentricities, and he spends the year experiencing new things as he tries to forget his past.

  • Excerpt: Having just celebrated my 40th birthday, I can safely say that it’s been over two decades since I’ve been a teenager (and even then I was still 20 years old).  So movies like The Perks of Being a Wallflower aren’t exactly my cup of tea…unless they’re done right.  Yes I grew up on films like The Breakfast Club, The Goonies and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and while all classics in their own right, let’s face it – they’re nearing three decades old!

  • Conclusion: 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' is one of the most underrated films of 2012. It's an honest and genuine contemporary coming-of-age story that's fit for audiences both old and young. The story and themes are especially relative for the youth of today. I believe that the insight and inspiration that it offers can truly make a positive change for today's teenagers.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower Blu-ray Review

  • Conclusion: My hunch is if you're under 30 (and even better, close to 20), you're probably going to love The Perks of Being a Wallflower , warts and all. Those of us who have crossed the dreaded threshold into middle age will probably be less inclined to overlook the film's flaws. The best thing about this outing is the fine acting by Lerman, Watson and a dedicated supporting cast.

The Perks Of Being A Wallflower

Cinema Blend
21 September 2012
  • Excerpt: The intense and sometimes terrifying emotions of adolescence, so easily forgotten by adults, are revived, with thoughtfulness and deep affection in The Perks of Being A Wallflower , in which writer and director Stephen Chbosky adapts his own hit young adult novel. It's only Chbosky's second feature, and his first with any kind of real budget, but he navigates the treacherous terrain of altering his own novel quite well.

  • Excerpt: The trouble with critiquing the film adaptation of a beloved novel is that, invariably, some wisenheimer has to pipe up and tell you that whatever issue you've taken with the film--a plot point, a characterization, what have you--was present in the book, and was thus absolutely necessary, which you'd know if you've read the book you unread ignoramus, etc. etc.

20 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Adapted by novelist turned film-and-TV writer turned director Stephen Chbosky from his own YA hit, The Perks Of Being A Wallflower harkens back to that long-ago era when 1600 was a top SAT score, and a choice token of affection was a carefully crafted mixtape. This fact alone might be enough to endear it to any pre-Millennial, but the film is also an earnest, big-hearted ode to friends as support and salvation, and to the talismanic quality a favorite song, treasured...

  • Excerpt: Loners know that adolescence is a time of alienation. While nobody wants to be like everybody else, shyness is a disability, and we tend to have a biting need for friendship and belonging. The director demonstrates remarkable sensitivity in showing the agony of awkward social situations and largely avoiding cliché. The central characters are entrancing as they navigate their lives with quirky individualism, and they're interesting and real.
