dear friend too

after almost a year of waiting ever since i read the book, i finally got to see the movie for the perks of being a wallflower.


the movie always ends differently from the book and i anticipated that the movie would be depressing.  surprisingly, a lot of people came to see it.   maybe because it's been a while since we saw a movie come out featuring Emma Watson (yes, Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter series) or maybe because, based on the trailer, a lot of people thought they didn't fit in and could relate to Charlie.

i liked the songs they used, i liked how unlike the book, the movie is lighter.  the book was very depressing and serious that somehow, while reading it, i wanted to slash my wrists.  there was a time in my life when i couldn't speak to anyone and all i had was my writing.

the movie is remarkable and i'm so happy i finally saw it.  it was worth waiting for.
