‘Perks of Being a Wallflower’ Quotes, Favorite Lines on Tumblr [PHOTOS]
"Perks of Being a Wallflower" is making waves despite an initial limited release. Summit debuted the film on four screens and gathered an average of $61,000 per screen, according to Hollywood News.
"Perks of Being a Wallflower" is based on a 1990s novel by Stephen Chbosky, the same man who directed and wrote the screenplay for the film adaptation.
The film is about a young man's coming of age in the 90s, and the letters he wrote to someone who could understand him. This is also Emma Watson's first feature after the Harry Potter series. She stars with equally impressive actors Logan Lerman and Ezra Miller.
Charlie, a high school freshman, starts the school year after his best friend died of suicide. He struggles through the adjustment in his relatively new world, until two seniors took him under their wings. With his new friends, he learns to enjoy being alive and "infinite." But there have been demons in his mind all along. He has to come to terms with a distant past once and for all. So he gets the help he needed for a profound self-discovery. The film ends when Charlie is ready to "participate" and appreciate life to the fullest.
The complex themes presented in subtle scenes would have not made as much impact if not for the brilliant performances of the lead characters. Watson acts her heart out in this film, while Lerman and Miller are both compelling in their roles as Charlie and Patrick, respectively.
Fans who have seen the film have been posting their favorite lines across social network sites on the internet. This goes to show how the film successfully made an impact on the viewers' minds.
