Author Stephen Chbosky makes his screenwriting and directing debut with The Perks of Being a Wallflower, the adaption of his acclaimed best-selling coming-of-age novel. The film, which has been heralded as The Breakfast Club for a new generation, arrives on DVD & VCD from Summit Entertainment, a LIONSGATE company.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower is locally distributed by C-Interactive Digital Entertainment.
Featuring great performances from a young but talented ensemble cast, the movie revolves around a freshman named Charlie (Logan Lerman, Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief) who is always watching from the sidelines until a pair of charismatic seniors takes him under their wing. Beautiful, free-spirited Sam (Emma Watson, the Harry Potter franchise) and her fearless stepbrother Patrick (Ezra Miller, We Need to Talk About Kevin) shepherd Charlie through new friendships, first love, burgeoning sexuality, wild parties, midnight screenings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show and the quest for the perfect song.
It’s a great coming-of-age movie that I would recommend to the young and the young at heart.
