Charlie, an introverted freshman, struggles to find a place to belong as he navigates the ups and downs of life in high school, learning to cope with first love, mental illness, and the real world with the help of his friends and by writing about it all. Fans of the book have no need to worry about the film’s faithfulness since author Stephen Chbosky wrote, directed, and cast the film himself. “Touching and brimming with the energy, enthusiasm and tides of teenage love and life, 'Perks' could very well be the next classic of the genre.” (Boston Globe) Sponsored by the Welcome Weekend Committee.
