Stephen Chbosky’s popular young adult novel of the same name was adapted for the big screen in 2012 to positive reception. A fifteen-year-old boy named Charlie (Logan Lerman) must face high school as an introvert whose only friend is his English teacher (Paul Rudd). However, he finds that he fits in with a group of misfits who happen to be seniors (Emma Watson, Ezra Miller, Mae Whitman). But Charlie is also struggling to cope with his friend’s suicide and his own dark past.
With David Bowie’s “Heroes” as its featured song, the film has a very nostalgic visual aesthetic to complement its setting and soundtrack. Here are ten of the film’s most beautiful stills.
