The Perks of Being a Wallflower is based on the highly acclaimed debut novel of Stephen Chbosky, and with Chbosky behind the adaptation in the capacity of both writer and director, he ensures that the characters he created are treated with respect and tenderness and makes sure to focus on the messages that the film has to convey.
Writer and director Stephen Chbosky has crafted what I suspect is an autobiographical tale of a high school freshman named Charlie, who we meet on his first day of high school, terrified for a lot more reasons than we initially suspect, who does eventually find himself part of a very special inner circle of upper classmen, who are sympathetic upon reveal of some of Charlie's backstory, but eventually, realistic and painful peer pressure does irreparable damage to this circle, including Charlie having to walk away from Sam, an effervescent senior whom Charlie is falling for, while helping Sam's stepbrother, Patrick, who is openly gay and struggling with an affair with a closeted football player.
