We have read from IMDb that this film is a movie adaption from Stephen Chbosky’s novel of the same name. This film follows an aspiring writer and introverted freshman named Charlie, who struggled with his best friend’s suicide and has a mental illness in the past. Upon entering high school, he was befriended by his seniors. When he experienced the happiness he just received, the ghost of his past became out of control.

After the cast’s phenomenal performance, accurate representations of high schoolers, and proper handling of sensitive issues, this film received a “Certified Fresh” mark from the Rotten Tomatoes website.


THE CAST MEMBERS


1. LOGAN LERMAN

Of course, we’re going to start with the actor who played the film’s main protagonist, Charlie. Logan Lerman has been in the spotlight since he was young, and he knows how to ace his performance. That’s why, when he performed as Charlie, he absolutely gave the character justice. 

Logan has been part of the movie screen since the early 2000s. He is known to play William Martin in the movie, The Patriot. Of course, we can’t forget him as Percy Jackson in the two films Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief and Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters. Now that Logan has matured, the Percy Jackson fans wanted him to play Poseidon for the possible remake of the films’ films mentioned earlier. Well, what are your thoughts about this?

Now for 2021, we are all excited since Logan will be performing with a star-studded film. We have read from the Forbes website that Logan is part of the cast for the upcoming movie Bullet Train.


2. EMMA WATSON

Emma Watson is a well-known name in the industry. We can’t forget how iconic she is when she played Hermione in the Harry Potter film series. That’s why when she starred as Sam in  The Perks of Being a Wallflower, her performance is totally fresh and was warmly received by the viewers.

After her role as Sam, she starred in Noah, where she once again performed with co-star Logan Lerman. She also had a role in The Vicar of Dibley, Colonia, Beauty and the Beast, and Little Women. Though she doesn’t have any upcoming films to anticipate, that doesn’t mean the rumors of her retiring are true. Looper revealed that Emma’s manager clarified that the actress’s career is doing well.


3. EZRA MILLER

After The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Ezra starred in Batman vs. Superman, Suicide Squad, Fantastic Beasts, and Zack Snyder’s Justice League. With his iconic role as Flash, his IMDb page revealed that he has an upcoming film, The Flash!
