It's shocking that it's taken so long for Stephen Chbosky's 1999 novel to hit the big screen, but that day is finally here! Perks of Being a Wallflower was released Friday.
Set in a 1991 Pittsburgh suburb, the coming-of-age story focuses on Charlie (Logan Lerman), a shy high school freshman struggling to fit in while hiding a secret from his past. Seniors Sam (Emma Watson) and her gay stepbrother Patrick (Ezra Miller) take the young outcast under their wings and help him find his place.
Emma Watson has traded in her wand (and British accent) to be a wallflower.
The Harry Potter alum — along with new co-stars Logan Lerman and Ezra Miller — introduced the first trailer for Perks of Being a Wallflower at the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday night. (Move over, Ron and Harry!)
