HP fans rejoice! Hermione is back!
But this time our fave know-it-all is sporting a (questionable) American accent in the on-screen adaption of the 1999 novel by Stephen Chobsky in The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
For those of you who have no idea what the hell I’m talking about (I know you’re reading this) here’s a brief summary:
The story follows 15-year-old Charlie (Logan Lerman) and his year as a high-school freshman. He’s an introvert (wallflower) who becomes friends with the attractive and rebellious senior, Sam (Emma Watson) and her openly-gay stepbrother Patrick (Ezra Miller). Sam and Patrick act as guides for Charlie, introducing him to people, drugs and parties.
He’s an awkward teenager trying to find where he fits in society (and let’s face it, who can’t relate to that?). A teenage whiz-writer, Charlie is constantly encouraged by his English teacher Bill (Paul Rudd) to pursue his dreams of becoming a professional writer.
The (almost A-list) supporting cast also includes the druggy daughter from Parenthood Mae Whitman (Mary-Elizabeth), the redhead from Private Practice Kate Walsh and Dylan McDermott as Charlie’s parents, the main chick from Vampire Diaries Nina Dobrev (Charlie’s sister Candace) and Zane Holtz (Charlie’s brother).
It's set for release in the US on 14 September 2012, Australia has no set date yet (typical).
