THE PERKS OF BE­ING A WALLFLOWER

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Fans of the best-sell­ing novel will be dis­ap­pointed, while those who don’t know the comin­gof-age story will at least hang in to the end to see how mis­fit Char­lie fares in his first year of high school. The per­for­mances from the young cast, which in­clude Har­ryPot­ter’s Emma Wat­son, are first rate, but the movie me­an­ders in a way that loses some of the in­ten­sity and paints its characters as self-ob­sessed rather than trou­bled. ★★ Ex­tras: Di­rec­tor and cast com­men­tary, deleted scenes ★★
