Best on a beloved novel by Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a film about being on the outside at High School. Apparently the film is “a moving tale of love, loss, fear and hope-and the unforgettable friends that help us through life”. More important than things like plot is the fact that this film marks Emma Watson’s first role post-Potter and as she finished that franchise with the highest acting score (as the charts show), and she is by far the most attractive, we will be watching her performance with great intrigue.
This could be a coming-of-age classic or a pretentious teen drama – though frankly it could also easily be both.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower arrives in UK cinemas on October 5th.
