Last night The Cinema Society, along with Lancome and Nylon, hosted a special screening of the teen flick at the hip Crosby Street Hotel in Soho - just the kind of event the quirky characters in the film would have loved to attend!
The Perks of Being a Wallflower stars Three Musketeers cutie Logan Lerman as introverted-but-adorbs high school freshman Charlie (Lerman), who enters teen society searching for like-minded "misfits" and finds Emma Watson and Ezra Miller (last seen making a very different impression on his classmates in We Need to Talk About Kevin). Is Charlie going to go all Angela Chase, narrating the brave new world of busting weird dance moves at Homecoming and standing up to bullies and shouting ironically at cheerleaders?
Tilda Swinton's extreme exasperation is always a cinematic treat, but We Need to Talk About Kevin looks like it will achieve record levels of mania. As the mother of a sociopathic son (Ezra Miller), Swinton is giving it her all, which makes her underdog status in the Best Actress race a bit disappointing. Here, watch as Kevin tortures his mother to the tune of Buddy Holly's "Everyday" and adds some believable terror to your Halloween. Cannot wait for this movie.
The sunny Hamptons International Film Festival played host to veteran stars and up-and-comers alike over the weekend, from Matthew Broderick and Alec Baldwin (who shared an eventful onstage chat at the fest) to Susan Sarandon, Alexander Skarsgard, and youngsters Emily Browning, Anton Yelchin, and former Verge designee Ezra Miller. Hit the jump for Movieline's red carpet gallery from the fest.
