I can so relate to Charlie's character, being an introvert myself. I write more on my blog than I talk to people. This made me love the movie as it was in a way close to my heart. High school was never easy for Charlie but having friends who didn't care who he was made it much more bearable. Sam and Patrick seem such good friends to hang out with. When you learn more about Charlie, you start to empathize what he's going through. I do wonder about what happened with his best friend that was revealed at the start of the movie.
Logan Lerman was great in his character. His performance reminded me of his Bobby character from the Jack & Bobby series. He pulls the shy and awkward character very convincingly compared to his confident performance in the Percy Jackson series. Ezra Miller and Emma Watson's performances are on par as well. Their characters are likeable and you just want to make friends with them. The other characters blend well as well.

Charlie: "We accept the love we think we deserve"
I love this movie in all aspect. It's the kind of drama I could take easily and not have to delve in too much to understand the emotion of the characters. Now I want to read the book (If they have it on Audible)!
