This is no ordinary American high school flick.

Let’s face it, The Perks Of Being A Wallflower looked like a traditional American high school feature. It has the approach of a teen film that has been repeated too many times. We have been told enough about the struggles of adolescence and have already had the laughs from experiencing them in awkward situations. In addition, the film marks Emma Watson’s first major role since the end of the ... read more

From watching the trailer, I got a slight understanding of the film; guy has no friends when he starts his first year in high school and struggles to make them also, he then finally meets some nice people who befriend him, which to one he falls in love with.

Whilst the base of the story is just as I had predicted, the film as a whole was so much more.

We are all faced with challenges, life is full of them. It is how we choose to face those challenges that ultimately make us who we are. Every now and then, a film gets growing up right. The Perks of Being a Wallflower is one of those film that not only gets it right, but does with integrity.

My remarkable songs from movies (30 movies items)

"Dexys Midnight Runners - Come On Eileen "Heroes" is one of my favorite songs, but the scene didn't catch me. But who can resist to Emma Watson saying "OH MY GOD, they are playing good music!" and doing an awesome dance with Ezra Miller? Also, great scene for the movie. "

" Not what I expected at all, but very good indeed. I think I didn't enjoy it as much seeing as I was expecting a much more lighthearted film. Perhaps I'll enjoy it more after another watch."

2015 Film Diary (186 movies items)

"17.2. A teen drama slightly above the average, The Perks of Being a Wallflower shows the importance of having friends when you're a teenager. I liked how the protagonist was several years younger than the friends he made and how that wasn't made into a big deal at all. It was also positive that the characters were not too cliched. I must say though that based on what I've seen, Emma Watson is a pretty poor actress, and this role particularly would have needed someone with more skill, presence, "

Solid performances, music and a decent story

“'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' is almost a masterpiece thanks to its great leads (Logan Lerman, Emma Watson, Ezra Miller, its wonderful music but not so much the story, I like the story but it's nothing really amazing

'The Perks of Being A Wallflower' is a movie that would be enjoyed by anyone who enjoyed the Harry Potter series or anyone who enjoys the best movies (of course 'The Perks of Being A Wallflower' is not far from being a great movie/a masterpiece)

It may well turn out that besides the Harry Potter series, the most successful lead is Emma Watson who made a movie enjoyed by everyone ('Driving Lessons' was mostly panned and 'Wild Target' was more panned, 'The Woman In Black' was really terrible to me while 'December Boys' was panned)

“A beautiful little well acted movie about teenagers coming of age when you are not part of the in crowd. This is told from a perspective of a freshman in high school who has no friends and prospects of making any are very dim. He is also recovering from the death of his closest and only friend the year before. There's a bit of a traumatic back story that we don't know too much about as the main character (Charles) gets flashbacks throughout the movie and their emotionally devastating meaning is revealed at the end of the movie.

A must see for anyone that went through high school with the added challenges of not having friends and being lonely.

Due to circumstances I personally had to switch high school 3 times and was a quiet person by nature so I can definitely rel” read more

Charlie is facing his first day of highschool, he doesn’t have any friends and is counting the days until he is done. His life changes when he meets Patrick and Sam, who start showing him the true value of friendship. A long the way Charlie must deal with growing up, the problems he has faced in the past and what lies ahead in his future.

This film is captivating on so many levels, first of all starting with story. Right away, anyone who has ever battled depression or anxiety fe” read more

Whilst the base of the story is just as I had predicted, the film as a whole was so much more.

Charlie who is the main character is extremely socially awkward, and you get hints close to the beginning that something in his past had caused him to be this way, eventually you start finding out Charlie has a very deep story in the past which is gradually explained through as the film goes on by flash-backs, you will eventually find out why he is the person he is today, this combined with the journey through his first ye” read more
