A new clip from The Perks of Being a Wallflower has gone online.  I read the book last week, and I think I would have loved it if I had read it when I was fifteen.  That’s not to say it’s a bad book, but it does seem designed to speak directly to people in the age range of 13 to 17-years-old.  My biggest curiosity about the movie is that author Stephen Chbosky has adapted his own novel, and some of his book may not easily translate to the big screen.  For example, the protagonist, Charlie (Logan Lerman), cries all the time in the novel.  In this new clip, he’s toasted by friends Patrick (Ezra Miller) and Sam (Emma Watson) for being a wallflower.  In the book, he starts crying, and here, he’s dry-eyed, which is probably for the best since it would probably look kind of silly.

Hit the jump to check out the clip.  The film also stars Mae Whitman, Kate Walsh, Dylan McDermott, Nina Dobrev, and Paul Rudd.  I plan to catch The Perks of Being a Wallflower when it plays at the Toronto International Film Festival; it opens in the U.S. on September 21st.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Perks of Being a Wallflower:

A funny and touching coming-of-age story based on the beloved best-selling novel by Stephen Chbosky, THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER is a modern classic that captures the dizzying highs and crushing lows of growing up. Starring Logan Lerman, Emma Watson and Ezra Miller, THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER is a moving tale of love, loss, fear and hope–and the unforgettable friends that help us through life.
