Our literature-loving hearts have been aching—ACHING I TELL YOU—for the September 21 release of “The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” the big-screen adaptation of Stephen Chbosky’s arresting, coming-of-age novel. And with a little more than a month to wait, well, let’s just say we’re performing plenty of downward-facing dogs and lighting lots of aromatherapy candles to keep ourselves calm. You know what also soothes our spirit? EXCLUSIVE images straight from our friends at Summit Entertainment.
To wit, a trio of never-before-seen stills, featuring “Perks” stars Logan Lerman, Emma Watson and Ezra Miller, have landed in our laps, and we’re in a sharing mood.
For the uninitiated, “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” follows shy loner Charlie (Logan) during his freshman year of high school, as he acclimates to his new environment and eventually befriends step-siblings Sam (Emma) and Patrick (Ezra), who introduce him to a world of sex, drugs, and, yes, rock ’n’ roll.
The film also stars Nina Dobrev, Mae Whitman, Johnny Simmons, Paul Rudd, Kate Walsh and Dylan McDermott.
After you’ve perused these awesome images, head on over to “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” Facebook page for their Wallflower Wednesdays feature, in which an iconic quote and image from the book and film will be posted each Wednesday. And you can participate by creating your own original artwork, which may be featured on the film’s Tumblr!
