“Perks deserves points for going beyond the typical coming-of-age drivel aimed at teens. Logan Lerman excels as Charlie and Emma Watson makes a dream girl to die for, but the movie is stolen, head to tail, by Ezra Miller.” wrote Peter Travers of Rolling Stone.
The film, set in a Pittsburgh high-school, follows freshman Charlie (Lerman), as he attempts to discover who he is and his place in life. Two independent-minded seniors Same (Watson) and Patrick (Miller) take him under their wings and show him the way.
Stephen Chbosky wrote the book on which the film is based and directed the movie. He recently revealed that the release will include several deleted scenes featuring Watson and Dobrev.
