'The Perks Of Being Wallflower' Review


Dear Friend,

I just finished “The Perks of Being Wallflower.” It was so good.
Meski di tengah-tengah gue agak boring, karena sebenarnya konflik yang diangkat cuma gitu-gitu aja. But, it was so real, apa ya… sangat remaja. Simple, tapi rumit.  Karena begitulah kira-kira problema di umur belasan tahun, nggak kurang, nggak lebih. Tentang persahabatan, family drama, dan dunia remaja lainnya kayak musik atau film atau drugs dan sex. Everybody wants to run from their life, while there are many people with bigger problem. Ini berbeda dengan cerita-cerita remaja biasanya yang bertumpu pada pertemanan, merebutkan sesuatu, atau high school craziness (ada yang popular, ada yang cupu, drugs, sex). Berbekal dari sudut pandang Charlie, while he was not wild but not a nerds either.

Gue suka Charlie.
Dia sangat polos, cerdas, sensitif, dan baik hati. Charlie punya selera musik dan film yang bagus dan suka literatur. Dan beberapa kali, saya bisa merasakan apa yang dirasakan Charlie. Seperti yang dia bilang, “I know Patrick will be around, … but I’m afraid he won’t want to spend time with me.” atau “I thought about the word ‘special.’ And I thought the last person who said that about was my Aunt Helen. I was very grateful to have heard it again. Because I guess we all forget sometimes. And I think everyone is special in their on way.” dan masih banyak lagi pikiran-pikiran atau rasa penasaran Charlie terhadap hal kecil yang setiap kali baca gue kayak yang, “Ha! Iya banget nih!” :))

Everybody loves him. Eventhough his relationship with his sister wasn’t that good (but not bad either!), but I can feel they loved each other, ‘cos they were family, and that just the way it is. When he was about to hug his sister because he felt so loved. When he hugged every family member, ‘cos he loved them very much. Or he cried when he felt guilty. He liked his teacher, because his teacher knew that he’s so intelligent, and the teacher told him that he was special. The way his teacher gave him books to read. The way he really loved his Aunt Helen.

These simple things are really touching. Because sometimes we forget that small simple things makes us happy and grateful. Like its said, “When all one requires is that perfect song on that perfect drive to feel infinite.” “But Charlie can’t stay on the sideline forever. Standing on the fringes of life offers a uniqe perspective.”

Since I lived in Indonesia, so the movie haven't appear in cinema, yet (probably won't). I really wanna watch the movie, because Emma Watson played as Sam and Logan Lerman as Charlie. And Rotten Tomato said it's fresh. :)
