The Perks of Being a Wallflower Official Trailer #1 (2012)

Have you seen the trailer for The Perks of Being a Wallflower? It's based on the acclaimed young adult novel about a high school freshman played by Logan Lehrman (the tv show Jack and Bobby, 3:10 to Yuma) whose best friend committed suicide the year before. He falls in with a brother and sister, played by Emma Watson (Harry Potter) and Ezra Miller (We Need to Talk About Kevin) who have a huge impact on the young aspiring writer's life. His other important influence is one of his teachers played by Paul Rudd.
Steven Chbosky, the author, also scripted the movie so hopes are high. They better get it right because apparently thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands, make that millions... of young people are dying to see this film that hits on so many of the troubling issues facing them. Suicide. Homophobia. Not to mention that lonely lonely feeling that everyone else is in on some big joke and you're not. You're the butt.
The acting in the trailer looks strong; the story I think resonates beyond high school kids. We've all been there at one time or another. Look for the movie to be released this fall. Just in time for back to school!
