One of the best movies I've seen in a long time and one to which everyone, no matter your age, will relate. Funny, sad, tragic and uplifting all in one movie. The book was excellent, yet the movie somehow makes this classic story more rounded out and real. The direction, the cinematography and the music set all the appropriate moods. The best thing though is the acting. Ezra Miller was great, Logan Lerman was heartwrenching as Charlie, and Emma Watson should silence any doubters about whether she can act beyond Potter with a wonderful, emotive portrayal of Sam. Logan and Emma were great together. Supporting cast was good as well. A must see.

I must say I was really impressed. I loved the book and was excited for the movie but also worried it wouldn’t hold up to the book as is the case with most movies. But I think all in all they stayed true to the book. Emma Watson, Ezra Miller, and Logan Lerman were captivating. They all captured their characters completely. Overall is was a very moving film that I would recommend to everyone.

This movie was exactly what I wanted it to be from the book. All of the essential points from the book were very well incorporated. I absolutely loved this movie. Definitely a must see, but I would advise reading the book before hand.

I don't often find movies that I would consider watching a second time, but this one qualifies.
I really liked the development of the characters throughout the movie, and the themes dealing with starting high school, high school relationships, and messed up parents/relatives are easily relatable to real life.
I took my 12 year old to see it, but he is a pretty sophisticated and mature movie-goer, and I wouldn't recommend this movie for anyone under the age of 16 due to the mature themes and drug use in the movie.
