We Are Infinite
A funny and touching adventure based on a best-selling novel that has sold over a million copies in the U.S. and has been published in 16 countries and 13 languages, THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER is a modern classic about a shy, sensitive teenager caught between trying to live his life and escape it.
A sensitive teenager learns to navigate the soaring highs and perilous lows of adolescence in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, a powerful and affecting coming-of-age story based on the wildly popular young adult novel by Stephen Chbosky. Starring Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson and the Olympians), Emma Watson (the Harry Potter franchise) and Ezra Miller (We Need to Talk About Kevin, Another Happy Day), The Perks of Being a Wallflower captures the complexities of growing up with uncommon grace, humor and compassion.
It's 1991 and academically precocious, socially awkward Charlie (Logan Lerman) is a wallflower, always watching from the sidelines, until a pair of charismatic seniors take him under their wing. Beautiful, free-spirited Sam (Emma Watson) and her fearless stepbrother, Patrick (Ezra Miller), shepherd Charlie through new friendships, first love, burgeoning sexuality, bacchanalian parties, midnight screenings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show and the quest for the perfect song. At the same time, his English teacher, Mr. Anderson (Paul Rudd) introduces him to the world of literature, sparking his dreams of becoming a writer.
But even as Charlie thrives in his new, more grown-up world, the pain of his past--which includes, his best friend Michael's recent suicide and the accidental death of a beloved aunt--lurks just below the surface. As his older friends plan to leave home for college, Charlie's precarious equilibrium begins to crumble, and at the root of his sadness is a shocking revelation.
Also starring Kate Walsh ("Private Practice," "Grey's Anatomy"), Dylan McDermott ("American Horror Story," "The Practice"), Mae Whitman ("Parenthood," Scott Pilgrim vs. the World), Nina Dobrev (The CW's "The Vampire Diaries"), Erin Wilhelmi (The English Teacher), Johnny Simmons (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) Zane Holtz (Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief) and Joan Cusack (The Toy Story Franchise, High Fidelity, Arthur Christmas), The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a touching and often funny portrait of the joy and anguish involved in becoming an adult.
