Acclaimed author Stephen Chbosky makes his directing debut with The Perks of Being a Wallflower, the adaption of his acclaimed best-selling coming-of-age novel. The film, which has been heralded as The Breakfast Club for a new generation and honored by numerous critics groups around the country, arrives on Blu-ray Disc (plus Digital Copy and UV), DVD (plus Digital Copy and UV), Video On Demand and Pay-Per-View on February 12 from Summit Entertainment, a LIONSGATE company.
Featuring stellar performances from a young ensemble cast, The Perks of Being a Wallflower centers around a freshman named Charlie (Logan Lerman, Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief) who is always watching from the sidelines until a pair of charismatic seniors takes him under their wing. Beautiful, free-spirited Sam (Emma Watson, the Harry Potter franchise) and her fearless stepbrother Patrick (Ezra Miller, We Need to Talk About Kevin) shepherd Charlie through new friendships, first love, burgeoning sexuality, wild parties, midnight screenings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show and the quest for the perfect song. The film also stars Mae Whitman (TV’s “Parenthood”), Nina Dobrev (TV’s “The Vampire Diaries”), Dylan McDermott (TV’s “American Horror Story”), Kate Walsh (TV’s “Private Practice”), Joan Cusack (Showtime’s “Shameless”) and Paul Rudd (upcoming This is 40). – MPRM Communications
