Wallflower

perks-of-being-a-wallflower

So as my first real class post I wold like to talk about the underrated movie and book that few know called The Perks of Being a Wallflower. I read the book before the movie came out, I have to be honest and say it is a small book but it took me a long time to read. Why did it take me so long? Well it deals with a lot of terrible real life issues including mental illness, suicide, drug use, and how we accept love. These are things not talked about in polite society, but they are things that need to acknowledged for everyone has to deal with different problems and with support of friends and family they can be overcome. Now the movie I just loved the casting was perfect, Emma Watson as Sam the love interest of Charlie(the narrator)  played by Logan Lerman and Ezra Miller plays Patrick Charlie’s new friend he makes at the beginning of the school year. I think it’s an important movie that people need to see, cause Charlie sees the world as it is and not how we would like it to be. Yes he has problems but who doesn’t? He is completely unfiltered while he narrates his first year of high school. I believe all of us can relate to at least one of the amazing characters in this story.
