Logan Lerman has been tweeting photos from the set of The Perks of Being a Wallflower.  Author Stephen Chbosky wrote the script and is directing the adaptation of his 1999 novel of the same name.  The coming-of-age story stars Lerman as “15-year-old Charlie (Lerman), an endearing and naive outsider, coping with first love (Emma Watson), the suicide of his best friend, and his own mental illness while struggling to find a group of people with whom he belongs.”  The film also stars Mae Whitman, Johnny Simmons, Ezra Miller, Nina Dobrev, and Dylan McDermott.

Here’s the synopsis of Stephen Chbosky’s novel The Perks of Being a Wallflower:

Charlie, the wallflower of the title, goes through a veritable bath of bathos in his 10th grade year, 1991. The novel is formatted as a series of letters to an unnamed “friend,” the first of which reveals the suicide of Charlie’s pal Michael. Charlie’s response–valid enough–is to cry. The crying soon gets out of hand, though–in subsequent letters, his father, his aunt, his sister and his sister’s boyfriend all become lachrymose. Charlie has the usual dire adolescent problems–sex, drugs, the thuggish football team–and they perplex him in the usual teen TV ways. Into these standard teenage issues Chbosky infuses a droning insistence on Charlie’s supersensitive disposition. Charlie’s English teacher and others have a disconcerting tendency to rhapsodize over Charlie’s giftedness, which seems to consist of Charlie’s unquestioning assimilation of the teacher’s taste in books. In the end we learn the root of Charlie’s psychological problems, and we confront, with him, the coming rigors of 11th grade, ever hopeful that he’ll find a suitable girlfriend and increase his vocabulary.

    Emma Watson is like a real-life Anime girl or something, people aren’t supposed to be that cute/hot at the same time.

    I recently read that she dropped out of college at Brown (?) I think because dudes wouldn’t date her there.

    Are they complete morons or just blind? Perhaps both.

    • Cassidy

      She actually dropped out of Brown so she could focus on filming the last Harry Potter film.

      But I completely agree with you– Emma is gorgeous!

  • Gabby

    Can’t wait to see this movie!! The cast is brilliant!

  • Alex–

    Of the all the “I’m a loser, coming of age stories”, this is the only one I’ve ever been excited about. And one can see why just from the photos.

    Logan Lerman, looks like a respectable dork. While his Watson looks like those crazy girlfriends you experimentally got involved with when young.
