Summit Entertainment released the first clip from Stephen Chbosky
’s beloved high school saga, The Perks of Being a Wallflower
Unlike the first trailer, this clip does a better job of capturing the relatively quieter tone of Chbosky’s book on which the film is based.
Furthermore, you can hear Emma Watson
’s American accent that is only one line that could have easily been more cheesy than eloquent, but you get it. As you may know, in her first post-Harry Potter role, she stars as a young woman who accepts a troubled newcomer into her unusual high school clique known as The Wallflowers.
Perks of Being a Wallflower might come off as more a collection of coming-of-age tales, for those whose experience was far different from Charlie’s (Logan Lerman
). Speaking more enthusiastically, a modern classic captures the dizzying highs and crushing lows of growing up though a tale of love, loss, fear, hope and the unforgettable friends that help us through life.
However, making it work on the page and on the big screen are two different kinds of things.
Also starring Ezra Miller
(which character Patrick honoring his ‘new friend’ Charlie), Nina Dobrev, Paul Rudd, Mae Whitman, Melanie Lynskey
and Kate Walsh
, the film is slated to hit a limited number of theaters on September 21st, 2012.
