The Perks of Being a Wallflower ★★★★★

Great, great film! One of the best of 2012. It's real, and therefore, it's hard, but so rewarding. Growing up can be the worst, and then being grown up can be the worst, too. But having other people is what makes it okay. This film filled me with love of life, and love of friends, and love of love.

Quotes:

Charlie: Why do nice people choose the wrong people to date?
Bill: Are we talking about anyone specific?
[Charlie nods]
Bill: We accept the love we think we deserve.
Charlie: Can we make them know they deserve more?
Bill: We can try.

Charlie: Do you like football?
Patrick: LOVE it.
[cheering]
Patrick: Be aggressive Passive aggressive

Charlie: Mary Elizabeth is a nice person underneath the parts of her that hate everybody.

Charlie: So, you're not scared of me?
Sam: No.
Charlie: So, we can be friends again?
Sam: Of course!
[She hugs him]
Sam: C'mon. Lets go be psychos together!

Charlie: Sam, do you ever think, that if people knew how crazy you really were that no one would ever talk to you?
Sam: All the time.

Charlie: So, this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how could that be.
