Andrew S (ag) wrote: "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" is yet another coming-of-age film about a teenager named Charlie (Logan Lerman), who is starting his freshman year after a year of struggling with depression, and quickly starts to realize the hardships of High School. Charlie is having a hard time making friends, plus he's still dealing with the loss of his aunt and his best-friend which is making him mentally unstable. However, two seniors, Patrick (Ezra Miller) and Sam (Emma Watson), decide to let him into their own little group. Together, they go on wild adventures, and Charlie finally feels like he belongs somewhere. The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a brave and well-crafted film about love, grief, friendship, and growing up."The Perks of Being a Wallflower" is based on the book written by Stephen Chbosky back in 1999, but this time, the author actually Directed the movie also. I for one had never read the book, but I heard it was really well-written, and quite dark for a book about a teen in high school, so I was a little worried about how the movie would go since it's PG-13, and books tend to be better most of the time because of more detail. Since I didn't read the book, I can't really say how similar the book and movie is, but from what I heard from others it's pretty darn close, except the movie is not quite as dark which is totally understandable since the movie is PG-13. Chbosky's Directional Debut is quite impressive, he made a very effective coming-of-age film which is very mature and truthful.The first ten minutes of the movie is incredibly heartbreaking, Logan Lerman's acting is spot on, his voice and impressions on his face clearly shows that Charlie's character is suffering in silence. Ezra Miller gives a very energetic and likable performance of a character that's emotionally conflicted, and also brings most of the comedic elements to the film. Emma Watson (Hermione from the Harry Potter movies) gives such a electrifying and convincing performance that proves to be her strongest to date. What makes "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" stick out from all the other coming-of-age movies is the darker content, the film doesn't hold back, it's really realistic how the messages about love, loss, friendship, and growing up are presented. The way Charlie is accepted in Sam's and Patrick's group is even quite realistic. Every character in the film is conflicted with their own demons, Charlie is suffering from depression because of his friend's suicide and the thought that he was the one who killed his aunt years ago, Sam is suffering from her troubled past that's still haunting her, and Patrick is dealing with his sexuality and his boyfriend who refuses to be seen in public with him. The messages of love, loss, and friendship is demonstrated masterfully, Charlie is able to get through his depression problems because of Patrick and Sam, but Charlie is able to help Patrick and Sam with their problems also, the power of friendship is just perfectly shown. Charlie dealt with his friend's suicide badly in the beginning, but he realizes that he has to move on with life. Throughout the film, Charlie has his eyes set upon Sam, and though he has never experienced love before, Charlies knows he truly loves Sam not just by her physical look, but how they are able to talk to each other about deep and personal things.The major issue with the film is the abrupt ending which holds a big twist that would of worked if the ending wasn't so rushed. The emotional impact is slightly there at the end and the movie ends with the message of hope and optimism for the future, but the ending seemed pretty forced and it loses that realism vibe the movie had for the first 80 minutes. There is also cheesy moments sprinkled here and there which are a bit off-putting (The scenes with Charlie and the teacher for example), but the performances are just amazing all around, so I didn't really mind the cheesiness all that much. Grade: A

Dr F P (nl) wrote: Another good movie i enjoyed Michael Douglas in. It is sweet and thoughtful, funny at times. The characters are just great, it's not really a movie that i can say a lot about. You just gotta watch it and see if it's your thing y'know, if you ONLY love movies with explosions this is not for you.

Matthew C (de) wrote: Yeah, another one of those movies from the 70s and 80s where a teacher bedding a student was seen not only as OK, but pretty cool. Michael Biehn is the young basketball star and Cathy Lee Crosby is the new couch, and it takes all of a wink and a smile to get her frolicking in a wet t-shirt on the beach. Another movie in a long line that gave me very unrealistic expectations of high school.

Leon B (br) wrote: Review:This is an extremely sweet movie with some great performances from some top actors. Mark Ruffalo, (Cam Stuart) plays a manic depressive father who loves his family very much but his wife Maggie Stuart (Zoe Saldana) finds it hard to deal with his various moods, which cause the family distress. Cam then has a psychotic breakdown, which causes him to be fired from his job and hospitalised for a while, and when he's released, he lives by himself, which takes him away from his loved ones. Maggie struggles to make ends meet and she finally decides to further her education in New York, while Cam looks after his two young girls. While Cam is struggling through there normal, day to day routine whilst dealing with his bipolar disease, Maggie visits the family household every weekend to make sure things are running smoothly. Cam really wants to get the family back together, once Maggie has finished her 18 months training but she soon realises that there are more opportunities in New York. As Cam will not be able to tackle his disease and live in the fast paced city, he decides to stay in Boston and Maggie soon comes to the conclusion that it wouldn't be fair to take kids with her, so they work out a plan which will suit everyone. Its definitely a tear-jerker with emotional scenes throughout and I'm sure a lot of people would be able to relate to the families distressing situation. The chemistry between Saldana and Ruffalo is very realistic and the little girls, Amelia (Imogene Wolodarsky) and Faith (Ashley Aufderheide), are great. Its definitely an emotional drama about a family who make the most out of what they have but if your expecting twists and turns, this is definitely not the movie for you. Enjoyable!Round-Up:Although this movie didn't make its money back at the box office, it's definitely worth a watch. Mark Ruffalo, 48, was brilliant as the doting father, alongside Zoe Saldana, 37, who has starred in huge movies like Avatar, Guardians of the Galaxy, Star Trek and Pirates of the Caribbean. She is due to play Nina Simone in the biopic, Nina and with another Star Trek, Guardians of the Galaxy and Avatar in the pipeline, she has definitely made the right choices in her successful career. Anyway, this is the first movie directed by Maya Forbes but she wrote 12 episodes of the Larry Sanders Show, the Rocker, Monsters vs. Aliens, Diary of a Wimpy Kid and an episode for the People v. O.J. Simpson. For her first project, she done a great job by getting some top actors in this well written drama and it'll be good to see what type of movie she will direct next.Budget: $6.7millionWorldwide Gross: $1.8millionI recommend this movie to people who are into their drama/romance/comedies starring Mark Ruffalo, Zoe Saldana, Imogene Wolodarsky and Ashley Aufderheide. 6/10
