Film Review: The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Directed by Stephen Chbosky and adapted from his own novel, The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a coming-of-age drama starring Logan Lerman, Ezra Miller and Emma Watson.   

Following a typical high-school type drama, Chbosky’s picture tells the story of a troubled and lonely teenage boy who befriends two seniors who guides him through a journey of self discovery.

Easy to relate to, The Perks of Being a Wallflower portrays a realistic scenario in today’s youth and will leave most audiences able to connect to the story in some way.

Starring Emma Watson in her first feature role since Harry Potter, this picture shows her days at Hogwarts are long gone (even if her American accent doesn’t say so), with co-stars Lerman and Miller also delivering excellent performances. The trio work well together and this is what makes this film click.

Along with an incredible soundtrack accompanied by stunning scenes, The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a unique piece of cinema that stands high above the rest.
