This is a sequel to my story Understanding Charlie.
September 28, Stars: Not any writer has quite analyzed teen angst as well as John Hughes, but Chbosky comes pretty close. And some people said Project X was a good teen film, anyone can take a Super 8 camera and film garbage, but not everyone can create something quite as beautiful as this.
Meet Charlie Logan Lermana young freshman outsider who has to deal with his own inner demons of the past, depression, and loneliness, and the death of his best friend.
They take him under their wings, show him lessons of love, pain, friendship, belonging, and overcome being a complete wallflower. Stephen Chbosky directs, and adapts his own novel for the big screen. And he does it quite well. There are some really cool visuals, like when one of the main characters is on drugs.
The writing is brilliant through and through. There is a great sense of poignancy, and can easily cause the viewer to get choked up in several areas because of sensitive subjects.
The poignancy is large, and the comedy is also hysterical. The funniest character is definitely Patrick. The mix of genres is beautiful, and the film can definitely make the viewer feel extremely emotional at one point, and fall-off-their-chair-laughing at the next minute.
That is always an aspect of films that I truly admire.
The profound, and unique, analysis of teenage angst is accurate, brilliantly touching, and heartbreakingly poignant. The performances are great, the story is awesome, and the atmosphere it offers is perfect. It has a cool use of visuals and flashbacks when they are there. It also has a nice use of voice-over narration from Charlie in some scenes.Inspired/based on the movie "The Perks Of Being A Wallflower".

Charlie is a perfect example of one who loses their innocence because of knowledge. For as long as he knew Sam, he loved her. The Perks of Being a Wallflower was released on September 21, The film was based off the book by Stephen Chbosky, who was also the director.
The producers of the movie were Lianne Halfon, Russell Smith, and John Malkovich. "The Perks of Being a Wallflower hurts. It hurts because it depicts the loneliness, anxiety and all-out quivering mess of adolescence in a manner not often seen since John Hughes' heyday".
Sep 27, If you haven’t seen The Perks of Being a Wallflower, you should. After seeing it for the first time, it became one of my top five movies. The story is that of the quintessential plight of the American teenager, and, as such, it is a story about suffering—about broken, sinful people in a broken, sinful world.
