Charlie Kelmeckis (Logan Lerman) is uneasy about beginning his freshman year of high school: he's shy and finds difficulty in making friends.
Charlie is befriended by two seniors, Sam (Emma Watson) and her step-brother Patrick (Ezra Miller) and he begins to share social activities with them. 
At a house party Charlie unwittingly eats a cannabis brownie, gets high and discloses to Sam that the year before his best friend committed suicide. Sam realizes that Charlie hasn't other friends so she makes effort to bring him into her group of friends.

This film is brilliantly crafted and reflects the fast-paced world we live in. Stephen Chbosky, writer and director,  pander his cast, giving more space for the editing.
Logan Lerman perfectly represents Charlie; sensational are the performances of Emma Watson and Ezra Miller. 

I walk around the school hallways and look at the people. I look at the teachers and wonder why they're here. If they like their jobs. Or us. And I wonder how smart they were when they were fifteen. Not in a mean way. In a curious way. It's like looking at all the students and wondering who's had their heart broken that day, and how they are able to cope with having three quizzes and a book report due on top of that. Or wondering who did the heart breaking. And wondering why.
