perks_of_being_a_wallflower_ver2Currently in theaters and finally gaining a little awards consideration attention, THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER is STEPHEN CHBOSKY’S own big-screen adaptation of his best selling young adult novel of the same name and follows the adolescent coming-of-age of a 15-year-old high schooler trying to cope with first love, loss and mental illness. Directed by CHBOSKY as well, the film features the captivating and completely committed performances of leads LOGAN LERMAN, EMMA WATSON and EZRA MILLER.  First-time director, CHBOSKY is to be congratulated not just for a great adaptation of his own book but also for the perfect ensemble cast he’s put together. Despite getting great notices for his performance, it was just a couple of years ago (during interviews for PERCY JACKSON)  that LERMAN confided in us that the kind of role he plays in PERKS is exactly the kind of character he was hoping to avoid.
