Following her role in Cary Fukunaga’s gorgeous and haunting adaptation of ‘Jane Eyre,’ Mia Wasikowska is at it again with another adaptation of a literary classic—this time, it’s ‘Madame Bovary,’ which boasts a lovely cast and even lovelier scenery, with Wasikowska playing the titular role of a woman who quickly discovers that she’s married a total Debbie Downer. So what does Mme. Bovary do? Have some affairs with some handsome fellas, of course.
I've discovered this: as one gets older, no matter how contenting daily life may be, the desire to return to one's youth grows so great that even full knowledge of just how miserable the experience was has little extinguishing power. 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower,' a '90s period piece and the latest in a "warts-and-all" look at adolescence knows this, embraces it and even celebrates the horrifying moments of growing up as the ones most worthy of celebration.
The first clip from 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' starring Logan Lerman, Emma Watson, and Ezra Miller has hit the web and it features quite the charming little toast for all you social outcasts and misfits out there.
'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' has to be many things to many people. For fans of the acclaimed novel, it has to live up to the images they cooked up in their head. For Summit, it has to prove that they can deliver films that don't have 'Twilight' in the title. For Emma Watson, it has to give her career life beyond the 'Harry Potter' franchise. For Ezra Miller, it has to prove to audiences that he can play roles beyond bow wielding psychopaths named Kevin. The film isn't out until September, but we can start here with a new poster and clip.
