The Perks of Be­ing a Wallflower

TV Times - - Soaps - Film4 6.55pm - 9.00pm

A smart and touch­ing high-school drama

This com­ing-of-age tale is far su­pe­rior to most in the genre, re­volv­ing around painfully shy stu­dent Lo­gan Ler­man as he grap­ples with his first year of high school in 1991 Pitts­burgh. Still frag­ile af­ter the sui­cide of his best friend, Ler­man shrinks back from school life un­til a pair of non­con­formist se­niors, stepsi­b­lings Emma Wat­son and Ezra Miller, un­ex­pect­edly be­friend him and en­cour­age him to bloom. A won­der­fully warm and poignant film. Edited.

Dir: Stephen Ch­bosky 2012, 12, 125min
