FOYLE FILM FESTIVAL PRESENTS In Association with THE REWIRE FESTIVAL

Fifteen-year-old Charlie is a loveable and naive outsider, coping with first love, his best friend’s suicide, and his own mental illness while struggling to find a group of people with whom he can connect. The introvert freshman is taken under the wings of two seniors, Sam and Patrick, who welcome him to the real world.

Perks deserves points for going beyond the typical coming-of-age drivel aimed at teens. Chbosky’s compassion for his characters is absent any hint of condescension. And that’s reflected in performances that leave the feeling you’ve seen something good and true.” - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
