Teen Film Series: The Perks of Being a Wallflower

BHPL is excited to offer a film series just for teens. We will be watching films from a variety of genres including indie/science fiction, action, anime/foreign, horror, comedy, and drama. Several of our films are based on young adult novels and they explore everything from social justice issues, to mental health, to time travel!

April’s film is “The Perks of Being a Wallflower”, a drama based on the young adult novel by Stephen Chbosky. A freshman named Charlie is always watching from the sidelines until a pair of charismatic seniors takes him under their wing. Beautiful, free-spirited Sam and her fearless stepbrother Patrick shepherd Charlie through new friendships, first love, burgeoning sexuality, bacchanalian parties, midnight screenings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show and the quest for the perfect song.

The movies we watch together in our Teen Film Series cover a wide range of subjects and styles, and we encourage teens and their families to research them in advance and decide which are right for you and your teen. For more information call the library at 374-5515.
