Movie Reviews: North By North LesThe Perks of Being a Wallflower

Five stars.

2012, 103 min., written and directed by Stephen Chbosky.

Based on the best selling book by Chbosky, this film stars Logan Lerman, Ezra Miller, and Emma Watson, in a sensitive coming of age story about high school teens, coping with child abuse, homophobia, and unrequited love. Miller’s portrayal of a gay teen rings true, and Watson shows her acting chops beyond her Harry Potter role. See this one! View the record for The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
