They are making a movie out of the book of the same title. Has anyone else read the book and is looking forward to seeing it?
I'm just hoping they don't water it down too much and turn it into just a regular coming of age movie, which the book certainly was not.
Um Ive known about this for years. I was actually kind of excited when I first got the news. As more and more i.fo came I got less excited. I cant even read the book again because it just had an impact on me. It was the perfect time in my life for it. So I dont know if I want to see the movie either. It is usually troubling to see a film done with only one person's interperetation when everyone who reads a book sees in in their head in their own way.

I highly recommend the book. It is brutally honest and quite moving. It deals with some very dark themes.

You know they are releasing the book with a picture of the actors on the cover now. Hate when they do that.
Oh yes! Paul Rudd!
The sig that I'm wearin? Awesomely made by Skaren!
Also, I like annoying Americans by calling English football "real football" and American football "rugby".-Lost-Chances
This is why I hate popular actors in films. They are always distracting.
Oh... No... This trailer looks awful. I found the book to feel very natural, but it looks like the movie is going to be sensationalized and overproduced like everything made in the past decade or so. Not that The Perks of Being a Wallflower was my favorite book, but this film has already gone sour and it hasn't come out yet.

of all the dorky cliche things to say about movies this one annoys me particularly- anyone with a brain in their head can understand the difference between mediums and the fact that an inspired work doesn't actually affect anything about the original

You mean the main character? He was not autistic, he was molested.

Like power outages, African-Americans, and blind people.

His problems were cause by the molestation. Autism does not work this way.

I know you know it was repressed memories. Which also caused his blackouts. Another thing which has nothing to do with autism.

What else do you think molestation does to a person? It completely fucks you up socially. His mind could not get passed it and not allow him to develop social skills. He was still partially stuck a child.
Paul Rudd?I love that guy
