Excerpt: Wallflower tells the story of a freshman trying to fit in. The movie succeeds due to great casting and directing. The story line was engaging through out the flick yet it could have included more drama.

Excerpt: Rarely does a cast come together as well as they did in Perks of Being a Wallflower. When you get such amazing performances out of young actors - it makes me think that the future of Hollywood is in good hands.
Summary: Emma Watson is phenomenal! This movie is amazing! I read the book and most of the time the book is better than the movie and this is true for this movie too. But the movie was fantastic in a whole new way. It portrayed the main ideas of the book perfectly and is just an awesome movie!
Summary: A solid coming of age movie with a good soundtrack good performances and an interesting take. It isn't ground breaking but is paced well, shot well, and ends well. Recommended for those that want a good drama rental.
