The Perks of Being a Wallflower Movie Quotes

"The Perks of Being a Wallflower" movie quotes bring the best-selling book of the same name by Stephen Chbosky to life on the big screen. The teen romance-drama film follows a reclusive young teen entering high school who seeks to break out of his shell and meets a pair of seniors who help him do just that. From the studio that produced "Juno," "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2012 before its full release later that month.

In "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," Charlie (Logan Lerman) is a high school freshman who has always kept to himself because he was different from the average popular kid. But on the urging of his english teacher (Paul Rudd), Charlie takes the leap and makes friends with a duo of seniors, Sam (Emma Watson) and Patrick (Ezra Miller) who are just as much of outcasts as Charlie.

Sam and Patrick, step-siblings, teach Charlie that just because you don't fit the mold of the typical high schooler doesn't mean that you should be restricted in any way. They take him to parties, show him how to enjoy life, even if it involves being below average or weird. They show him how things are in the real world, including dealing with relationships, drugs and bullying, but in the end, they show Charlie how to open up and enjoy himself for who he is, something Charlie has dearly wanted.

    Sam: "I had lunch with Craig today."
    Charlie: "Oh yeah?"
    Sam: "He said he was sorry and that I was right to break up with him. I was driving away and feeling so small, just asking myself, 'Why do I and everyone I love pick people who treat us like we're nothing?'"
    Charlie: "We accept the love we think we deserve."

    In a comment wise beyond his years, Charlie breaks down the mentality behind why Sam constantly chooses to associate with those who treat her poorly, remarking that subconsciously, she thinks she does not deserve better.
