While playing truth or dare in the midst of his unwanted relationship with Mary Elizabeth and ongoing feelings for Sam, he is asked to kiss the most beautiful woman in the room. He betrays Mary Elizabeth and kisses Sam.
Mother: She's on the phone now? Charlie, you've got to break up with her.
Charlie: I can do that?
Sam: You can't just sit there and put everybody's lives ahead of yours and think it counts as love.
Charlie: Right now we are alive and in this moment I swear we are infinite.
I didn't read the book, but Perks of Being a Wallflower is a film that is very interesting. It takes the viewer back to a time during adolescence when making sense of things was difficult and finding your spot in this world was even harder. High School made this process even harder, and this film lends itself to that.
What really makes Perks of Being a Wallflower very interesting are the depth of the characters. Each of them are very unique in various ways, and as the story continues, you learn more about the troubles from them as the film unfolds. Especially, from Charlie.
Perks of Being a Wallflower is an interesting movie well worth the watch simply based on its characters and it's overall relativity to something we've all dealt with.
