Lovely Movies: the Perks of Being a Wallflower

Though I knew the book is very popular, I had never looked into it, let alone read it. But when I saw the trailer of the movie I just had to go see it. As I tend to miss the movies I want to see most, I figured I had to do it soon. So I went yesterday.

It was amazing! The vibe is a bit similar to Restless, but there are so many more facets to this story that the comparison has to end there. I've always loved films that were like this, but I felt that -despite not having had anything to do with most of the themes- I somehow connected with this one the most emotionally.

One minute rule definitely applies here!

The cast is phenomenal. Logan Lerman nails this lead, Emma Watson did such a great job that I wasn't once reminded of Harry Potter, I always seem to like Mae Whitman, and Ezra Miller, oh Ezra Miller... He was my absolute favorite! Paul Rudd has a small part as well and it was just that bit of icing on the cake.

Also, if you're a fan of the book you won't be let down by the movie, as the actual author did, not only the screenplay, but the directing as well.

Long story short: GO SEE THIS FILM!


  1. I can't wait to see this! I'm planning on going Sunday to the movies :)

  2. Dude. This is not fair. Haha. I've been wanting to see this movie for forever. I read the book, and its amazing. And when i saw the trailer i knew it would be amazing. And then it came out in theaters near us the week i was gone to visit my sister in college and then when i planned to see it when i came back, it was out of theaters already!! I guess it didn't promote itself well enough so it didn't bring in enough money box wise. So i missed it and im so bummed. Because it looks so good. And the book was so good. :( Did you read the book?

  3. So can't wait to see this movie! it's not out here in New Zealand yet, so it's a bit of a pain!

  4. On my list for sure. I wasn't a huge fan of the book but that trailer looked awesome! I love that you said you weren't reminded of Harry Potter because that really means they did a great job of acting their parts. Can't wait to see it!

  5. Can't wait to watch this one!! So glad you liked it, now I'm even more excited!


Thank you for your comments, they really make my day!
