Charlie, a 15 year-old high school student who suffers from clinical depression, learns to move forward with his life after the sudden suicide of his best friend. While the road ahead looks dark and hopeless, Charlie begins to regain his taste for life when he meets Patrick and Samantha, two eccentric seniors who decide to take him under their wing and bring him along on their weird adventures.
“The Perks Of Being A Wallflower” is the adaptation of a novel by Stephen Chbosky, who wrote and directed the movie himself. It stars Logan Lerman, Emma Watson (in her first main role following the end of the Harry Potter series) and Ezra Miller in his breakout role. Every single performance in this movie is fantastic, with Lerman shining as the main character Charlie. It is probably one of the most emotional and well-crafted teen dramas of the last decade or so, and it deserved to be way more popular upon release than it ended up being.
