A Must-See Movie

The Perks Of Being A WallFlower 

Whether you were the cool kid, an outcast, a drama geek or somewhere in between high school is never that far away. Even if you'd like it to be. I've been absolutely thrilled about the release of The Perks of Being A Wallflower since I first heard rumors of it being brought to the big screen, and now... the wait is over! I'm a total movie buff and a closet book fiend so I couldn't be happier over the marriage of these two for this project. 

Sam, played by Emma Watson, is a character that any girl can relate to. Okay maybe not any girl, but I know that I'm probably relatable on some aspect. She borders between being abundantly passionate and strong to temporarily fragile. She's wise beyond her years, but continues to live a carefree life. She's young and wants more but still gets caught up in the day to day petty issues. If that doesn't describe the way you've felt at some point in your life, then I would be shocked, but that is why I love her character. 

 The story centers around Charlie, a young and completely socially awkward underclassmen who is flailing through life. His emotion and honesty guide the story through an all but normal year. It's totally a modern day Catcher in the Rye and should be read, at least once and I'm really hoping that the movie pulls through and does it justice. 

What are you going to be checking out at the cinema this weekend? Did you see The Perks of Being A Wallflower
