The Perks of Being a Wallflower trailer | tomaca12

After watching this I retract earlier thoughts I had that Emma Watson would be annoying as Sam—she’s fine. However I think of the book totally different to this. The normal response would be “go see the film to get another’s interpretation of it” but I think that the book means too much to me to be willing to do that, so I don’t think I’ll go and see it.

Specifically: I don’t see the book as being about a trio of high school kids that don’t fit in. That’s part of the book but one of the least important parts.

What do you think it’s about? I’d love to hear a summary (I know you’ve written about it before, but still).

All their thoughts, feelings and experiences, only some of which are related to their lives at school (I appreciate that my claim that “a trio of high school kids that don’t fit in” refers to the same thing, but hopefully my meaning is clear).

Interesting… I suppose I interpreted “a trio of high school kids that don’t fit in” wider that you actually meant it. But the trailer doesn’t look to just be about their time in school (although, like the book, school pays a role in setting).
