“Perks” of Being a Book Adaptation

By Jazmynn Croskey

       200 something pages squeezed into less than 2 hours of film time. Sound impossible? Not in Hollywood it isn’t. Book to film adaptations have become quite popular in recent years in the film-making industry, with film makers taking a risk when dealing with the harrowing “book to movie” adaptation of best selling novels. Perks of Being a Wallflower was one when it was brought to the silver screen by author Steven Chbosky. With the book being published in the late 90s, it was a stretch to make it a film in 2012, over a decade after it was released. Chbosky’s best seller garnered a cult following, with fans anxiously awaiting the release of the film with the same name. The film follows Charlie, played by sweet natured Logan Lerman, through his tumultuous freshman year of high school. He makes friends with seniors Sam, played by the fabulous Emma Watson out of Hogwarts attire, and her stepbrother Peter played by the charming Ezra miller.Together, they introduce Charlie to a world of drinking, drugs, lust, and what it truly means to belong.

       Though Wallflower was lucky to have Chbosky write the screenplay and direct the film, some book to film adaptations do not fair as well. Take Pittacus Lore’s I am Number Four series.  The 2011 box office bomb of the same name thrived in the casting department with British heartthrob Alex Pettyfer and Glee star Dianna Agron as the main leads, but focused too much on pretty faces than the actual content of the film. Hollywood always has to have the last say in everything when it comes to film, just so enough money is made to upkeep the lavish lifestyle it’s known for. What Hollywood doesn’t realize is that the so-called moneymaker doesn’t always shake the most cash.

       Book to movie adaptations are difficult but Wallflower was flawless and stayed true to its original format the way adaptation should.
