Painfully shy Charlie begins his first year of high school in 1991 Pittsburgh, with the recent suicide of his best friend casting a shadow over his mental health. When he is befriended by a pair of free-spirited seniors, Charlie rediscovers the joys of friendship, music and first love.

MUBI's take

When the book was released, Perks of Being a Wallflower was hailed as The Catcher in the Rye for a new generation of teen alienation. Adapting his novel to film, writer-director Stephen Chbosky continued to capture the painful particularities of being an adolescent and made a young millennial hit.
