This Is My New Favorite Movie!
Hey there, a few weeks ago my best friend and I were talking about movies and she told me about one movie that I should watch. so last night I took it upon myself to start watching the movie “the perks of being a wallflower” and I think it was really good, an I do mean really good, like Amazing good. if you've seen it you probably think I'm exaggerating but in my mind I'm not. This is probably going to sound so corny but I feel this connection with the guy named Charlie. You can tell that he’s going through his own mental Battle. All he wanted todo is survive. Then he find not just one but two people to help him brake enjoy the little things. He doesn’t wanna stand out but is still able to experience life and they help him through it. I can honestly say that I can relate. There are days that I wanna curl up in a corner and just become invisible, on most days ware I wanna be seen I feel like no one notices but his friends see him with no judgment. It was because of them he became a better version of him self, I love Patric and Sam for that. They are there own people and they don’t care about what others think. They’re also so open minded and truly just wanna have fun.
Sam is like me too. She has goals for her future and has such a strong connection with music, it’s almost as if it actually feeds her soul and awakens her spirit. Patric just don’t wanna be put box. He wants to experience the best things in life and on top of that he wants to share it with everybody. I feel bad for him because he wants to save everybody even though he can’t.
I also feel the need to add that Sam’s love for music is shown in her room just like mine. In general the two of them are so expressive. They are who they are and you can tell they really love each other for it. I guess what I’m getting at is that every character has something relatable about them even till this day.
When I say that my heart dropped when Charlie kissed Sam and fry the other girl I mean it. But you know it’s true friendship when somebody stands up for you even after you turn your back on them and that’s exactly what Charlie did for patric when he basically saved him from getting beat up. I respect him for that.
The moment where Charlie and Sam looked up at the stars was probably the most impactful part of the movie. I don’t know how to explain how I felt in that moment but I felt something way stronger than I did during the entire rest of the movie.
Charlie feels like all his friends are leaving him behind because he’s a freshman and everybody else is going up to college and I get that feeling. Even though it’s not the same circumstances I feel like everybody gets that feeling at some point.
He finally felt like he belong in the end and that should be endgame. Eventually he got the help he needed and Sam found the tunnel song. He felt so much less alone and more understood. I feel like I should have more to say about this movie but I’m gonna end it out this. There friend group as a whole it’s just so amazing, all they want is for each other to be happy and everybody needs friends like that in their life.
