From watching the trailer, I got a slight understanding of the film; guy has no friends when he starts his first year in high school and struggles to make them also, he then finally meets some nice people who befriend him, which to one he falls in love with.

Whilst the base of the story is just as I had predicted, the film as a whole was so much more.

Charlie who is the main character is extremely socially awkward, and you get hints close to the beginning that something in his past had caused him to be this way, eventually you start finding out Charlie has a very deep story in the past which is gradually explained through as the film goes on by flash-backs, you will eventually find out why he is the person he is today, this combined with the journey through his first year with his new friends who also have different personal issues makes this film an emotional roller-coaster.

I don't want to ruin the story for those who haven't seen it, so I'm not going to go into further detail.

On a final note, I do want to point out that the cast for this film was perfect, they were all brilliant at their roles and made the film very believable. I also want to say Emma Watson did an especially good job at portraying her character 'Sam'. As she's widely recognised for playing Hermione from the Harry Potter films, it must have been hard for her to shake off that image that has been imprinted into peoples minds throughout these years, which she has done so brilliantly in this film, this shows how good she is of an actress.

I would highly recommend this film for those who enjoy drama/romantic based films and I certainly will be buying this film when it comes out on DVD/Blu-ray.

Coming of Age films are getting lazier and lazier these days with too much focus being made on fashion, comedy and very little substance to amuse the masses, but I have to say, "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" managed to escape all those traps quite successfully. An absolutely fantastic film that touches you and gives you the power to just see the beauty of life, love and friendship.

The story follows fifteen year old Charlie who is starting high school, an introverted loner who has recently lost his best friend to suicide and is coping with various inner demons that he has not been able to properly process since the age of seven. Charlie's eyes are opened to a whole new way of life when he meets extroverted outsiders Patrick and Sam, a pair of seniors, who take pity on his loneliness and bring him into their circle of friends who are due to graduate within the year.

Charlie is left open to many new experiences, mostly sitting on the sidelines as he watches his new friends live out their final year of high school. For Charlie, his new friends open up a whole new world of complications, impossible romances, and planning for a life of infinite possibilities, which may lead to unlocking key memories about his past which have previously been blacked out from his mind, may help him understand things that still haunt him about his childhood.

Sometimes a film comes along which has the power to move you so much, one which can charm you and make you laugh, one that effortlessly ensures that you really become involved in the lives of the characters, all of whom you'd seriously love to be friends with in real life, and leaves you feeing warm and uplifted after watching it. 2012's coming-of-age adventure 'The Perks of Being A Wallflower' is one such film which does all of this, and is unquestionably the best I've seen in a very long time.

As someone who has suffered with social anxiety for the past four years, and only now am I starting to feel on the road to recovery, how I can relate to the main character, the 'wallflower' Charlie (Logan Freeman) who moves into his first year of high school, and has difficulty in communicating with people. He's an intelligent individual, as hiss English teacher soon realises, but because he struggles to 'connect' with others, he has no friends, until he meets two seniors, Sam (Emma Watson), and her stepbrother Patrick (Ezra Miller), at a football game. These colourful characters kindly take the shy young man under their wing, introduce him to their other buddies, and take him to his first ever party.

It isn't long before Charlie begins, for the first ever, to fit in with a group of people who care for him. He makes his new found buddies laugh, and in a truly moving scene, receives his first kiss from Sam, a girl of whom he shares a lot of common ground with. Suddenly, a world different world has been opened up to him, and lots of new experiences await Charlie.

'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' makes a mockery of all the samey trash that the coming-of-age genre has spawned, and is a film to be enjoyed by people of both sexes, of all ages.

All three stars of this movie - Logan Lerman, Emma Watson and Ezra Miller - had baggage going into this film in terms of well-known roles in previous films. It is to their credit that they made me forget Percy Jackson, Harry Potter and We Need To Talk About Kevin. This is a well-judged high-school story that tackles a couple of sensitive issues with a good balance of cool distance and mawkishness, insight and introversion, witty dialogue and realistic awkwardness.
Stephen Chbosky's direction (from his own book of the same name) is certainly not ostentatious, and this is probably wise. Too much camera tomfoolery would probably distract attention from what is really quite a personal, everyday drama.
