2012 has been a really good year for movies, am I right?
Whether you want comedy, drama, romance or adventure, there has been something for everyone at the movie theater this year! One of my favorite types of movies are the ones that are based on novels, like The Perks of Being a Wallflower, which is coming to theaters on September 21!
What is The Perks of Being a Wallflower movie all about?
A funny and touching coming-of-age story based on the beloved best-selling novel by Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a modern classic that captures the dizzying highs and crushing lows of growing up.
Starring Logan Lerman, Emma Watson and Ezra Miller, The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a moving tale of love, loss, fear and hope – and the unforgettable friends that help us through life.
It’s kind of the quintessential teenage story…take a look for yourself! I got a little misty-eyed when I watched the trailer, it reminded so much of my own high school experience – and was just one more reminder that my little girl, Angeline, is now a teenager and is in high school!
She will be facing some of these same issues and I hope, learning some of the same lessons these kids in The Perks of Being a Wallflower learn. I would love it if you would like The Perks of Being a Wallflower on Facebook! I would love to see as many teens as possible heading to the theaters to see this movie, it seems like it has such a positive, empowering message!
The soundtrack will be released on September 18th and is just as lovely and heartfelt! I was surprised to see that some of my favorite songs from my own high school days were on the soundtrack…and a few fantastic new songs as well!
