I'd put "The Perks of Being A Wallflower" in the same ranks as some of the most memorable coming-of-age films I've seen, such as "This Boy's Life" and "Adventureland." "Wallflower" is superbly acted, with great performances from the three young leads, a nice supporting role played by Paul Rudd, and a lyrical, sensitive script. The dramatic scenes flow naturally, hit all the right notes, and never seem forced or contrived. I feel that Oscar nods are totally deserving for Logan Lerman and Ezra Miller, both of whom really gave some incredible performances in intense roles that demanded a lot of dramatic range. A beautifully-made and emotionally satisfying movie and an impressive directorial debut for Mr. Chbosky, who directs from his debut novel.
