My opinion : It’s better to start with the very few flaws the film had before delving into all of its qualities. The Perks Of Being A Wallflower has muddled pacing towards the end and at times can feel unrealistic. Other then that the film is a love letter to all the other non-conformists of schools who befriend one another for being uniquely strange compared to societal norms. Its dialogie is written brilliantly and sharply as it builds on the characters personality, making for very rich and interesting characters overall to root for. Not only that but the overall feel of the film works well, the important scenes are iconic for carrying a lot of heavy raw emotion, especially the end thats gut wrenchingly hard to watch as it is heartfelt. Overall the film works splendidly and I found myself loving nearly every minute of it as I could relate to what was happening on screen, and so can anyone whose lived through high-school as someone whose never really fitted into a subconsciously predetermined surface layered group. 90/100
