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.

Charlie is facing his first day of highschool, he doesn’t have any friends and is countin... read more

" I don't know if I will have the time to write any more letters because I might be too busy trying to participate. So if this does end up being the last letter I just want you to know that I was in a bad place before I started high school and you helped me. Even if you didn't know what I was talking about or know someone who's gone through it, you made me not feel alone. Because I know there are people who say all these things don't happen. And there are people who forget what it's like to be 1"

2012 in Cinema: From Best to Worst (102 movies items)

" "Right now we are alive and in this moment I swear we are infinite." When The Perks of Being a Wallflower was first being planned for the big screen, John Hughes was to mastermind the adaptation of Stephen Chbosky's best-selling book, and make his triumphant filmmaking comeback. It's easy to see why Hughes was attracted to the material, as Chbosky himself was inspired by movies like The Breakfast Club while writing the source novel. Rather than an American high school sex comedy, this is a poi"

"There was a time when lots of people were watching this movie and for a week, I kept seeing tweets and facebook posts about this movie. It got the mods of approval from lots of reviewers and many people found themselves relating to it. This movie is really good. It unfolds itself brilliantly and having the writer direct it, suited it. The tunnel scene is delighted to look at, the music is fascinating and it is a treat to see characters making mix tapes cause I used to do so... but for me, it di"

" When I emerged from the theater in which I watched the miracle that is Perks, I was on one of the highest of emotional highs that I've ever gotten from a theatrical experience. I was exhilarated. No feelings are left untouched here: when Perks wants to be uplifting and draw smiles from you, it absolutely sweeps you off your feet with its endless charm, and when it wants to be devastating and draw tears from you, it crushes you like a ton of bricks. I won't compare this to other "high school mov"

"20/1 So some people say that film is the greatest lie of them all. Some call it the greatest truth, subjectively speaking of course. I fall to the latter category. It's the meticulously captured truth of the crew making the film, and as you submit yourself to it, for that duration, it is reality, a great truth. And within this context, watching The Perks of Being a Wallflower was a rather harrowing experience. The existence of this truth, the idea that this is all very real, is an aid in immers"
