Acclaimed author Stephen Chbosky makes his screenwriting and directing debut with The Perks of Being a Wallflower, the adaption of his acclaimed best-selling coming-of-age novel. The film, which has been heralded as The Breakfast Club for a new generation, arrives on DVD & VCD from Summit Entertainment, a LIONSGATE company.

Featuring stellar performances from a young ensemble cast, The Perks of Being a Wallflower centers around a freshman named Charlie (Logan Lerman, Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief) who is always watching from the sidelines until a pair of charismatic seniors takes him under their wing. Beautiful, free-spirited Sam (Emma Watson, the Harry Potter franchise) and her fearless stepbrother Patrick (Ezra Miller, We Need to Talk About Kevin) shepherd Charlie through new friendships, first love, burgeoning sexuality, wild parties, midnight screenings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show and the quest for the perfect song. The film also stars Mae Whitman (TV’s “Parenthood”), Nina Dobrev (TV’s “The Vampire Diaries”), Dylan McDermott (TV’s “American Horror Story”), Kate Walsh (TV’s “Private Practice”), Joan Cusack (Showtime’s “Shameless”) and Paul Rudd (upcoming This is 40).
The DVD includes two audio commentaries; one featuring screenwriter/director Stephen Chbosky, and the other with Chobsky and the cast, deleted scenes, dailies and “Best Summer Ever” featurette.
