The actors in this well directed movie were all excellent. It was told from the teenagers viewpoint and the adults had very little dialog. This movie was one of the best movies of the year and I think it should not be forgotten when oscar nominations are being selected. . You will be so engrossed in the movie that you will not be not even be tempted to look at your watch. GO SEE IT and enjoy!

Just a great movie about the harsh reality of growing up and highschool, popularity and the potential to survive without totally compromising to the cliques in life. Would have liked to have seen a movie like this when I was that age. A definite must see for all young in the school experience.......and everyone else too. Poingnant messages in this one.

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!

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!
