The Perks of Being a Wallflower Review: Page to Screen Sensation

by at . Comments

There are few high school-set films that treat its leads as if their problems are as serious and equal to those profiled in adult films, such as American Beauty, without descending into buffoonery. A beauty has finally arrived in the form of the novel-to-big-screen journey of author Stephen Chbosky’s The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Who banned Harry Potter? Their Eyes Were Watching God is one of my all-time foeraitvs. I read it in multiple English classes and wrote several papers on it, both in high school and college. It amazes me how society still seeks to limit information. Most of the time, it backfires because banned information is that much more sought after. Banned anything (movies, books, websites, etc.) reinforces that ideas are powerful and can make a difference.

Logan Lerman looks like a young Paul Rudd. And they are both Jewish. Too bad Rudd is not playing Lerman's father in this film.
