Author Stephen Chbosky adapts and helms this take on his novel centering on an introverted freshman named Charlie (Logan Lerman) who gets pulled into the orbit of a pair of independent-minded seniors (Emma Watson and Ezra Miller).
This trio of social outcasts stands on the doorstep of the real world, ready to burst through and dance into the great beyond with style and verve. Perks marks the first-post Potter turn for Watson and the buzz seems to signal a real breakout for her. Now in theaters. (PG-13) Not screened for review
