"The Perks of Being a Wallflower" Gala Night

"We accept the love we think we deserve..."

This may have been just one of the many famous lines you would remember if you have read the book, "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" written by Stephen Chbosky, and was released in February 1st, 1999.  This year, the novel was made into a film and starred Emma Watson, Ezra Miller, and Logan Lerman who played the lead role of a teenage boy named Charlie.

I have been lucky to receive 10 movie tickets for its Philippine premiere courtesy of Astroplus and shared it with a few friends. (Thank you all for joining even if it's a late invitation =) Special mention to Eda, Jake & girlfriend Mae )   I haven't read the book, so I didn't really know what to expect, except that there's Emma Watson from one of my favorite fantasy films, Harry Potter and the cute guy on the poster, Ezra Miller. =)   I was later surprised to see that the author Stephen Chbosky himself, wrote the screenplay and directed the film!

A few of my movie invites
 I won't discuss what exactly happened in the story for those who haven't read it, but definitely the public should watch out for Ezra Miller who played as Patrick, Sam's step-brother portrayed by Emma Watson.  He well-acted his role and thought that he may have overshadowed Logan Lerman who is on the lead because of the intensity of his part and how he portrayed it.  =)

The event were sponsored by NetBooster, Alcatel, Astroplus, and Philips. 

Before the actual screening, Alcatel also gave out cellphones to those lucky audiences.  Too bad I didn't win, but perhaps next time :(

If you can, find time to catch "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" at the big screen.  As for me? I'll probably buy the book this weekend. :)
