Updated: Jan 25, 2021


Gist: The Perks Of Being A Wallflower is a truly moving story about Charlie, a freshman in high school who is by no means popular. He is very shy, but that all comes down to a mental issue that occurred because of his best friend committing suicide and something else that happened when he was younger.


Later on, Charlie meets two outgoing outsiders that are much cooler than him, Patrick, a gay, happy and outgoing teen, and Sam, a beautiful young woman (who charlie falls for), they accept Charlie and he finally feels included. They introduce him to a new world filled with all sorts of teenage stuff (if you know what I mean ;) ).


Description: This is a wonderful feel good movie, full of hope and coming of age teenagers, and I clearly get what they go through too.

Charlie (Logan Lerman) -

Charlie is a shy and caring person but also has a lot of guilt. He is extremely thoughtful, and this leads him to very good and very bad places. He sees things, and he understands, he's a wallflower (a person who is an introvert but still attends social gatherings and usually just observes everything instead of being a part of it). He's also a loving guy, who always takes good care of his friends and stands up for them.


Sam (Emma Watson) -

Sam, a high school senior and Patrick's stepsister, also takes Charlie under her wing. At the beginning of the movie, Sam seems like she has everything: she is beautiful, she is spontaneous, and she has a group of friends who love her. Until the later half of the movie, where she reveals her upsetting past: that she was once sexually abused as a child by her of father's friend. Otherwise, Sam is kind, warm, an ideal friend and comforting to all.


Patrick (Ezra Miller) -

Patrick may seem as the typical teenage with the perfect life but just like Sam, his life isn't too perfect either. He had recetly discovered his sexuality (gay) it was all very new and raw to him but he still covers up his sadnees his cheerful and goofy demeanor. Even though he was Sam's Step brother he still made her feel welcomed and treated her like his real sister unlike any other boys who get a step sibling, that proves that he was kind and friendly towards everyone.


Mr. Anderson (Paul Rudd) -

He's not only Ant Man of Marvel but also the nice and welcoming high school English teacher in this movie who believes that Charlie is intelligent and smart, he gives Charlie books to read and asks him write essays on them.
