"You're a Wallflower."

          "You see things.
          And you understand. 
          You're a wallflower." -  Patrick

Have you ever seen a movie, which is so heartfelt and warm,
and you couldn't stop to think about life, and so on?
Well, yesterday, I was.

          "So, this is my life.
          And I want you to know that I'm both happy and sad 
          And I'm still trying to figure out how could that be." - Charlie

The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012) a film directed and based on the critically acclaimed novel by Stephen Chbosky. Fifteen-year-old Charlie (Logan Lerman) is about to begin his freshman year of high school. He told his story by writing letters to anonymous stranger, because he's alone, he's only friend committed suicide months ago, and he has this mental illness about seeing visions. His closest relative was his aunt, who died in a car accident when he was seven.
Later he tried to make friends with two seniors - Sam (Emma Watson) and her stepbrother Patrick (Ezra Miller). They welcome Charlie to their group, and introduce Charlie to many experiences with his new friends. He soon has a romantic feeling for Sam, but he believes that he has no chance with her. After a while, Charlie begins to learn about new things in life. He has friends who help him through life. He learns about love. But he also keep seeing visions about the day her aunt died in a car accident. And there's one point when he just couldn't face it, not at all.

          "Why do I, and everyone I love, pick people who treat us like we're nothing?"
          "We accept the love we think we deserve."

It amazed me how Logan Lerman (Charlie) act in the movie. You can believe that he is a typical-strange-home-boy-for-life at the first sight you saw him on his first scene. He makes everyone swim around with Charlie's mind. Pure, smart, but lonely. And what I love more about this film is how fast it can bring your emotions up and down. I got teary several times, and cried a little bit. Yes, it was that good.
I got so caught in those emotions.. Concerned? Sad? Moved? I don't know, they're coming altogether at once.  

At some point, there comes a time in your life that you will be on your lowest. And thinking that you don't have any friends to help you through that, not even your family - it kind of feel depressing to me. Well, the thought of it actually scares me. And that's why I can see the way Charlie feels. It must be really, really hard. 
I'm saying this not because it was just in a movie - But there are real people like him. Kids who's struggling through all bullies. How easy they think about suicide and ends their life, because they couldn't take it anymore. It's just not right. :(

Anyways, this one is a movie you shouldn't miss. LIKE, WATCH THIS IMMEDIATELY.
They can change  your perspective of life. Try it ;)

          "I can see it.
          This one moment when you know you're not a sad story. 
          You are alive. 
          And you stand up and  see the lights on the buildings and everything that makes you wonder. 
          And you're listening to that song on that drive with the people you love most in this world. 
          And in this moment, I swear..

          We are infinite." - Charlie

Thanks for reading!

  9. I love the way you wrote this post, it is beautifully constructed (sorry, teacher speaking). It also moved me because it is a very real problem and I have had at least one student trying to commit suicide because he was bullied. We must be aware of the pain some kids go through !x
