Top Critic Reviews
Fresh: Somehow, these imperfections fit. Somehow, "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" shouldn't be flawless.
- Amy Biancolli, San Francisco Chronicle, Friday, September 28, 2012
Fresh: This big-screen adaptation, written and directed by Chbosky, doesn't advance the source material, though it preserves the book's sensitive tone and affectionate characterizations.
- Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader, Thursday, September 27, 2012
Fresh: There is an honesty to "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," a genuineness of experience that makes the movie soar when it just as easily could have stumbled.

Slow moving, but really good. Great soundtrack too. Very different role for Emma Watson. I was impressed!

Though with an unnecessary twist and a few clichs in a plot that could have certainly avoided them, this is a very sincere and involving drama about what it is like to be a teenager trying to find his place in the world - and its strength lies in three excellent performances.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a touching, heartfelt and funny film from first time director Stephen Chbosky, who also wrote the script and wrote the novel. Logan Lerman, Emma Watson, and Ezra Miller give absolutely fabulous performances that deserved Award attention especially for Ezra Miller. Besides some flaws and confusion (maybe a second viewing is in order), I had a great time watching this film. The performances add humanity to the wonderful script, and the characters are so normal, that everybody can identify with them somehow. See this film, you won't regret it.
