Now playing in limited release and expanding into more theaters tomorrow is Stephen Chbosky’s fantastic movie The Perks of Being a Wallflower (watch the trailer here).  Chbosky wrote the adaptation of his own novel and also directed the feature.  In the film, Logan Lerman plays an introverted high school freshman who finds acceptance in two senior students, played by Emma Watson and Ezra Miller.  The film also stars Mae Whitman, Kate Walsh, Dylan McDermott, Nina Dobrev, and Paul Rudd.  Over the past few years I’ve seen a number of coming of age movies.  Usually they play out the same way and touch on the same themes.  What makes Perks so special is that it tackles serious issues with honestly and believability.  In addition, all the actors are great and it’s Lerman’s best work to date.  I strongly recommend checking it out.

At the Toronto International Film Festival Perks premiered to glowing reviews.  Shortly before the premiere I spoke to Nina Dobrev.  We talked about her reaction to reading the script, how she got cast, her preparation process, how similar she is to her character, and what fans can look forward to in The Vampire Diaries season 4.  Hit the jump to watch.
