Its hard to describe what i exactly felt after watching this one. Its a mixed bag of laughter, heart break, friendship and affection. All of this combined with totally incredible performances its a brilliant story of a troubled boy without a social life and friends. I was blown away by Logan Lerman's performance as Charlie.
Charlie is an introvert and is anxious about making friends at his first day of high school. But soon he makes friends with two seniors Sam (Emma Watson) and Patrick (Ezra Miller) and eventually blends into their vivacity. He is enthusiastic about being a writer and Sam suggests him to write about their friendship. Charlie begins to see the world from their eyes and we slowly come to know about these three friends as the story uncovers their life of present and past.
I loved the three characters and the movie is nothing short of phenomenal. Watching the extraordinary performances was not surprising as most of these actors have already proved their worth in their respective previous movies (Emma Watson in "Harry Potter" series and Ezra Miller in "We Need to Talk About Kevin") and this movie is surely a feather in their cap. Logan Lerman's performance is probably one of the finest performance from this year in my opinion.
Who should watch?
Just watch it, no matter what kind of movies you like, this one will surely appeal you.
