"The Perks of Being a Wallflower"

This is not your typical coming-of-age film. It's about Charlie who's starting his freshman year in high school. He dreads it because he recently has had to deal with depression, which is due to the suicide of his best friend. He's terribly shy and introverted. But he soon befriends several oddball seniors who take him in and make him feel accepted. The movie has its comedic moments, but there are also some darker parts to it as well. The acting by Logan Lerman and Emma Watson is outstanding and very believable. This is a movie warranting more than one viewing.
5 stars out of 5
