100 out of 100 Emotionally dazzling, beautiful, power, heart-breaking and often-funny with a mature tone to a story about a young freshman haunted by his past and living in the new world and becoming their own person. A winning film about the triumph of starting high school and again, the film earns to be in my favorite movie category.

This is always a tough one for me. I read The Perks of Being a Wallflower and had high expectations for the movie. This movie was artfully done - not like the American Pie series. It was tasteful when it came to tough subjects like alcohol and drugs while still getting the point across. I was not thrilled wiht some of the scenes left out from the book. I know they only have so much time on screen, but I thought some of the scenes were relative to the story. Someone that did not read the book may not have the background needed to understand some issues.
Overall, a great movie!

Really well done and not the usual special effects, foul language or abundant sex that so many other movies need to just be OK. A surprising story line - revealed toward the end of the movie - and characters that don't require a lot of immagination to believe. Really, for everyone.

This movie is an appealing addition to the "how-awful-is-high school" genre. The performances of the main characters and the supporting cast are at points compelling, and they carry the story. The plot details are revealed slowly, which helps hold audience interests. I recommend seeing it once. I am not sure it's worth seeing multiple times, however.

took my 15 year old to what I thought was going to be another mindless teenage high school flick. GREAT surprise! Funny, heartwarming, and terrific acting. Highly recommend!
