Become Infinite With ‘THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER’ on Blu-ray & DVD on February 12th

So here’s a film that I know connected with a lot of people that were able to see it in theaters and will probably connect with those who seek it out on Blu-ray, when it arrives this coming February.  The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a wonderful coming-of-age film, with nice performances all around, and it hits shelves on Blu-ray and DVD on February 12, 2013.  It is a film based on the best-selling novel from author Stephen Chbosky, who actually wrote and directed the film as well.  From the reaction it received, the film seems to be in line to take up the mantle as one of the best films about surviving in high school, akin to some of the work from John Hughes, among others (I’ll support Rushmore in this case).  I know I certainly liked it (review HERE).  From what I can tell, the Blu-ray does not seem to be lacking in more content to explore, regarding the film and those involved in bringing the novel to life.  Read on to learn more about this upcoming Blu-ray release.

“Grade A: Graceful and beguiling.”

Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

“A first-rate coming-of-age film.  Hilarious and heart wrenching and so real.”

Karen Durbin, Elle
