The Perks of Being a Wallflower

DVD Verdict
12 February 2013
  • Excerpt: As a young person, I skipped right over teen novels. I went from Goosebumps at 10 to Stephen King at 12, never looking at the stuff in between. Not that we had all that many teen novels when I was growing up. This was before the age of Twilight and The Hunger Games . Even in those olden days before publishers realized what a lucrative market teen readers could be—if you coaxed them enough with movie adaptations—there were a few standout classics in the genre of...

DVD Review: The Perks Of Being A Wallflower

Film Guide
27 June 2013
  • Excerpt: One of the (for me at least) unexpected words to sum up The Perks Of Being A Wallflower would be wow, but that’s the word I’d genuinely use. I’ll be honest, I wasn’t exactly excited at the prospect of watching this coming of age drama with the tag line ‘ we are infinite.’ The film didn’t even begin well, with social misfit Charlie being just too cliched and knowing that it was just going to be so embarrassing to watch this tale of high school woe is me.

Expert Review

FILMDUDE
29 November 2012
  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Säga vad man vill om svensköversatta titlar men ibland har de faktiskt en bra funktion. Ofta handlar det visserligen om fantasilösa direktöversättningar och ibland har man hittat på något nästan så långt ifrån verkligheten det går att komma bara för att det låter fräckt och kan locka köpare. Som sagt kan det också vara väldigt välkommet med en svensk översättning som just i detta fall.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012)

2 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Charlie heeft een heftig jaar achter de rug en verheugt zich dan ook niet erg op het komende schooljaar. Hij heeft weinig hoop dat het dit jaar beter wordt. Sterker nog: hij begint de eerste dag met het aftellen naar de dag dat hij eindexamen doet. Zijn toekomst begint er ineens een stuk rooskleuriger uit te zien wanneer laatstejaars Patrick en zijn stiefzusje Sam hem onder hun vleugels nemen.

  • Excerpt: I rekken av filmer om tenåringsangst og kjærlighet kommer en som er skikkelig god! The Perks of Being a Wallflower innrømmer i sin egen dialog at dette er en ungdomssåpe, men regissør Stephen Chbosky pakker det inn i vakker nostalgi med indiefilmpreg. Denne filmen har også godt skuespill, et solid soundtrack og en sympatisk historie som gjør meg engasjert. Dette kan trygt anbefales!
