It is very rare for me to watch a movie before I’ve read the book. Usually it’s the other way around, but I kept hearing great things about this one and seeing quotes from it on Pinterest, so I decided to give it a go.
It’s excellent. Definitely worth the hype. A sensitive, moving account of what it’s like to be a teenager. Emma Watson is excellent as always, of course, and Logan Lerman shines as misfit Charlie, providing an astonishingly accurate portrayal of psychological disturbance in teens.
Watching the movie made me want to read the book. I think this is the only time that’s ever happened.
