I enjoyed the structure of this unusual coming of age film, the way the story evolved... Naomi Rossdeutscher
I had been hot and exhausted all day and was looking forward to a really good story and The Perks of Being a Wallflower was just what I needed. It may be full of college kids but the story is warm and fun with enough intrigue to sustain adults of any age.
The screenplay was written by Stephen Chbosky and based on his own popular young adult novel, plus he directed the film - lucky and talented.
It's a powerful and affecting coming-of-age story about a sensitive teenager learning to navigate the highs and lows of adolescence, capturing the complexities of growing up with grace, humor and compassion.
The casting is a big plus with the adorable Emma Watson from the Harry Potter franchise, Logan Lerman and Ezra Miller who I loved, loved, loved and can't wait to see his next film.
