Sex ●●● Vi­o­lence ●●● Language ●●● Adapted by di­rec­tor Stephen Ch­bosky from his own 1999 best­seller, this com­ing-of-age tale re­volves around a painfully shy student (Lo­gan Ler­man) grap­pling with his first-year of high school. He shrinks back from school life un­til he is un­ex­pect­edly be­friended by two non­con­formist step-sib­lings (Emma Wat­son and Ezra Miller) who en­cour­age him to bloom. This is a fa­mil­iar enough story, but it has a like­able fresh­ness thanks to charis­matic per­for­mances from the film’s young leads. 2012, 12, 103MIN
