The Perks of Being a Wallflower, which stars Emma Watson in the screen adaptation of Stephen Chbosky best-selling novel, will be released on Blu-ray, DVD, and VOD on Feb. 12. (It can be downloaded digitally three weeks earlier, on Jan. 22.) Chbosky himself directed the film, his cinematic debut, which tells the story of a timid Pittsburgh high-school freshman (Logan Lerman) who comes out of his shell under the guidance of two independent-minded seniors (Watson and Ezra Miller). While the film hasn’t proven an enormous financial hit ($14.6 million so far), it’s been warmly embraced by critics, with EW’s Owen Gleiberman calling it “a graceful and beguiling drama” that “turns into an ecstatic expression of the beautiful solidarity of youth.”
The film also stars Mae Whitman (Parenthood), Nina Dobrev, Dylan McDermott, Kate Walsh, Joan Cusack, and Paul Rudd. Click below for all the package’s special features.
