Trailer Watch: The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Teen dramas aren’t my niche, but this one looks particularly engaging.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Plot Summary: An awkward teen finds friendship in an unlikely pair of social outcasts.
Release Date: September 14, 2012



Rating: C+
Commentary: Too much headspace creates an distancing effect, leaving the audience with too little imagination to fill in the blank. The purpose of such a device is poorly used on this type of film.
Rating: B+
Commentary: This looks like a genuine sleeper possibility. It looks sweet, charming and fun.
Preview Link: CLICK HERE for link to the trailer, more posters (if available) and other commentary not featured here.
Oscar Chances: It’s too soon to tell. The September berth is going to hurt its chances without strong support from critics and year-end awards.
