Don't be a wallflower! Be a WINNER! November 18 2012, 0 Comments

To celebrate the soon-to-be released film 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' we here at Ra Ra have 10 double passes to give away!! How exciting! Look out on our Facebook Page tonight for details on how to win.

'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' is sure to be a standout amongst the extensive repertoire of films dedicated to the nostalgia and angst of youth. Even the trailer gets me excited! Good music, love, loss, and 90’s fashion are just a few of the things you can look forward to.

Stephen Chbosky, who penned the best-selling novel of the same name, delivers a screen adaptation worthy of applause. The cast (which include Logan Lerman, Emma Watson, Ezra Miller) breathe life into Chbosky’s characters and lend to an eclectic group worthy of the novel. The film follows Charlie (Logan Lerman) as he starts at a new school and meets a group of oddball misfits who dub themselves the, “The island of misfit toys.” The film is all teen drama angst but with a hint of realism, making it a far cry from your average coming of age film. The trials and tribulations of broaching that weird line between childhood and impending adulthood are beautifully mastered by Chbosky and delivered equally well by the cast.

Emma Watson in particular shines on screen. Vastly different from her role in the Harry Potter series, she plays Sam, a girl who would be more adapt wondering the Thames reciting French poetry then cramming for exams. The perks of being a wallflower is funny, whimsical, and a definite must see. So stop reading here and share the link!!

‘Sam’ has inspired us at Ra Ra to put on our best not-so-wallflower outfits. Pop into the store, find your own 90’s inspired outfit and get snapping!
