The Perks of Being a Wallflower Reviews
This movie is classified as a coming-of-age film. You can connect to the main character. But his growth? He gains acceptance and friends from drug experimentation and becoming someone he is not. And the friends he gains are seniors, friends who will leave him when they go off to college. What about the rest of his three years in high school?
The Perks of being a Wallflower was awful and forgettable. A coming-of-age high that will crash when the main character is left alone for his remaining academic life.
It's a really sweet, charming tale of a loner boy coming of age while being taken under the wing of a pair of older teens who let him into their little circle of outcasts.
It's really great stuff, and comes highly recommended.
