Movie: The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Dear friends,

So today the Perks of Being a Wallflower finally premiered in the Netherlands, and of course I went to see in in the cinema. And oh my gosh, my feels! Seriously, if you were sitting next to me and didn't know me (and even if you did know me, but not that well) You would be looking at me like I was completely retarded or something. My emotions took me over! I was laughing, crying, feeling sad, feeling great, feeling all possible feelings, laughing some more, bawling, trying to keep my tears inside, singing along to the PERFECT movie music, and all of that at the same time. It felt INFINITE.
There are a couple of things that were extraordinarily good and made the movie this special to me:
Emma Watson as Sam
  1. The screenplay was written by the author of the book (ow yeah) and the movie was directed by him as well, and that was perfectly visible throughout the movie, in a positive way.
  2. The casting was done so well. Emma Watson did a splendid job playing Sam, because Same was just so much like I expect Emma Watson to be like in real life. Also, Logan Lerman was the perfect Charlie. Before seeing the movie I wasn't convinced of that, but the movie showed me that he was the best Charlie possible. He was just so much like Charlie, with the whole appearance, voice, way the acted and all of it. He made me like Charlie even more. And then there was Ezra Miller as Patrick. And oh my god, I would watch this movie only to see him play Patrick, because he is is freakin' hilarious! Seriously, every time I saw his face it put a smile upon my face. And he's smokin' as well! Simply a-ma-zing cast!
  3. The music. All of the songs I heard I liked a lot. They were all from the correct time, and all sounded so perfect and fit the movie very precise. Some of the songs were even my personal favorites, like "Asleep" by the Smiths and "Come on Eileen" by Dexy's Midnight Runners. I just couldn't stop myself and had to murmur along xD Luckily the cinema was almost empty, and the only person sitting nearby was a friend who liked the movie as much as I did.
  4. Ezra Miller As Patrick
  5. The Screenplay left out exactely the pieces of the book I didn't like. There were some things in the book that I believe would have been better if they were left out, and they were left out in the screenplay. These few tiny things didn't change the plot at all, luckily, as that would have been an enormous disaster.
So yeah, those were the 4 things that made me feel infinite while watching.

Love Always,
