Charlie's family is mostly warm and supportive, but they also have their share of dysfunction. Chbosky does not shield the audience from emotionally wrenching details of Charlie’s early childhood. If you like stories where bad things never happen to good people, this movie is not for you. It's not a total downer, though. Charlie is a super charming character. He’s smart and funny and prone to see things other people don’t notice. I found myself rooting for him to find his place in the world. After many ups and downs, including psychological breakdowns, Charlie assures us that even though life is tough and things won’t always go his way, he’s fine, just fine. And so are we. Chbosky wrote and directed the movie version of his novel. I preferred the book, but that’s probably because I watched the movie on the same day I finished reading the book, so I kept thinking of all the things the movie left out. If you plan on watching the movie, I recommend either watching it before reading the book, or watching it several months after you finish reading the book.

I enjoyed this movie. the soundtrack was fun. the male actors were unknown to me but they did a good job. I did not understand the back story about the aunt and was surprised it took such a dark turn at the end. mostly I enjoyed the movie.

I hope this isn't what high school is/was like for most people--a lot of drug use and bad decisions.

wow. what a sleeper hit. i don't know why it took me so long to watch this. but from the first narration you can feel the authenticness....beautifully written and acted. loved the build of the story in general. however, the punch at the end is spectacular.
