Perks of Being a Wallflower is a movie that lives up to its literary reputation. The coming of age story stars quirky yet awkward characters who are relatable.
Without missing a beat, the translation from the pages to the screen is seamless.
The film gave an understanding of the struggles teens routinely go through. The simple lightheartedness makes it a must watch.
