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.
