2. DVD: The Perks of Being a Wallflower
Acclaimed author turned screenwriter Stephen Chbosky’s The Perks of Being a Wallflower stars Logan Lerman, Emma Watson, and out queer actor Ezra Miller, who won raves for his performance as a gay teen. To a decade’s outcasts, the original print version of Perks belongs on a shelf next to The Catcher in the Rye. It pays tribute to that classic indictment of adult hypocrisy but also tells an updated, unflinching, uncensored story about how many childhoods were not so much the setting of a happy home video as they were fodder for a future PostSecret confession.The DVD, out Tuesday from Lionsgate, includes deleted scenes, commentary, and the featurette Best Summer Ever.
