Movie Reviews: The perks of being a wallflower

The perks of being a wallflower (2012)

It's about Charlie, a freshman at a high school who feels his life was no more that a wallflower.
He was an introvert and does not have many friends.
He was aware that his life as a freshman will be dreadful, and his way of adapting to his situation was by counting the days that he will spend there until his graduation.

His life changed after he befriend with Patrick, a senior who was in the same class as him.
He also gets to know Patrick's stepsister and was soon accepted into the senior's clique.
He falls in love, acted in the Rocky Horror picture show as Rocky, went to parties, involved in love life conflicts and get stoned. His life eventually changed and he was more than a wallflower.

The movie also showed him as a mentally disturbed boy. He kept having flashbacks of his childhood. Of him and his aunt Helen whom died in a car accident. 
It seems that aunt Helen sexually abused him as a child and the incidents traumatized him. He was unable to cope with this when the people that he loves a.k.a his senior best friends graduated and went to each of their university of choice. 
He attempted suicide but was stopped before he do so. He was then treated in a mental institute and soon was well again.

And after that, he stopped counting his days at high school, because he knows that his life was more than a wallflower. 

I love the story line of this movie!
I love how the Patrick's clique accepted Charlie even though he was just a freshman.I love how strong their friendship's bond are. And how much trust one can harbor on another person.
And believe me, the movie is much more fun than what I described. >.-

I personally love this movie and give it a 4/5 stars.

Thanks for reading! XOXO Gee.
