Stephen Chbosky: The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Stephen Chbosky presents his coming-of-age cult classic The Perks of Being a Wallflower and discusses the forthcoming film adaptation, which he wrote, produced, and directed.

Caught between trying to live his life and run from it, Charlie is dealing with the loss of a good friend and his favorite aunt. Standing on the fringes of life offers him a unique perspective. But there comes a time to see what it looks like from the dance floor. This is his story, provocatively and intimately told, about what it's like to travel that strange course through the uncharted territory of high school—the world of first dates, family dramas, new friends, sex, drugs, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and those wild roller-coaster days known as growing up.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower is now a major motion picture from Summit Entertainment starring Logan Lerman, Emma Watson, and Ezra Miller. It is scheduled for wide theatrical release September 21. More »
