I’d been dying to see Perks of Being a Wallflower after falling in love with the amazing book. I finally made it yesterday after discovering it was playing at our discount theater and my evening class was cancelled. Meant to be. Of course it couldn’t be the exact same as the book but I still found it to be really great and encompass so much of the book’s emotion. It was directed by the author so I thought it was cool to see his vision for the film.
Is it crazy that I find characters half my age so relatable?
For the movie they replaced Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide” with David Bowie’s “Heroes” for “the tunnel song”- which I’m totally on board with. This song is so powerful and really embraced the emotion of the final scene.
If you are obsessive like me, this is a great interview with the writer/director…
