In this engaging coming-of-age tale based on the best-selling novel by Stephen Chbosky, a shy freshman struggling with depression deals with his best friend's suicide and his first love -- and finds help from two seniors who take an interest in him.
One of the most beautiful and sensible movies about adolescence I have seen. It is a great story, well written, with touches of humor and drama so close to each other your experience of the movie is really emotional. The three main actors give everything for their performance, without even be out of tone. The dialogues are truly original, even in the most cliché of the conversation, the wording is so originally authentic you are surprised at every moment.
