One Of, If Not The Best Movie That I Have Ever Seen – The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Summit Entertainment’s latest film, based on the novel written by Stephen Chbosky, profiles a 15-year-old Charlie (Logan Lerman), an endearing and naive outsider, who is coping with first love (Emma Watson), the suicide of his best friend, and his own mental illness while struggling to find a group of people with whom he belongs. This introvert freshman is taken under the wings of two seniors, Sam and Patrick, who welcome him to the real world. You should be aware that this film was originally rated R by the MPAA for “teen drug and alcohol use, and some sexual references” but was later changed to PG-13 after an appeal for “mature thematic material, drug and alcohol use, sexual content including references, and a fight – all involving teens.” Our 14-year-old KIDS FIRST! Film Critic, Victoria Burns, found this film to be the “best she has ever seen” and noted that “this movie can prepare teens to not keep emotions and experiences bottled up because school can be painful and stressful.” Below is her review.
