“The Perks of Being a Wallflower” Evaluation
I’ve seen “The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” so many times, it is interesting, emotional and very relatable. It has a strong and clear plot, there are diverse characters and the movie is written based on a strong problem in the world and really captures what it is to be a teen in the real world. Not in some make-believe place with a lavish lifestyle. This movie is based on a book where the main character is telling the story. Charlie, a wallflower; socially awkward, quiet, withdrawn but yet very observant and thoughtful. Tells the story like it as written as are letters addresses to a “friend” we don’t know.
Charlie, a lonely freshman befriends two seniors at a football game Patrick and his stepsister Sam, who he later falls in love with. They introduce Charlie to their group of friends at a party, where everyone is smoking and drinking. He agrees to eat and edible for the first time and becomes the life of the party. He opens up to everyone while they are sharing how he met Patrick and Sam, and they ask him who his other friends are. And they find out he is a loner because his best friend committed suicide in middle school and he really didn’t have any other friends. Sam and Patrick realize that Charlie is hurt and needs people to be there for him and they stay by his side. They go to plenty of high school events and their bond grows. Charlie later gains a huge crush on Sam and tells her about it. It then becomes holiday season, he gets depressed because it brings back memories of his aunt Helen, who was abused by her husband and passed away on Charlie's birthday which is Christmas Eve.
He lost the two people that mattered most to him, his aunt and only friend. Charlie performs in the remake of the 1975 classic “The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” where he meets Mary Elizabeth. They end up dating and during a game of truth or dare, he is dared to kiss the prettiest woman in the room ...
