Derek posted a general review of Perks of Being a Wallflower.  He claims it is unsolicited since he is friend of Emma’s.

Before we even get to the film, I should say something: I adore Emma Watson. I think she’s a smart, sweet little lady, and she was one of the inspirations for my book, Very Classy, because I wish there were more girls like her in the world. Even with that out there, I can say that her performance as Sam in the film ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower,’ based on the best selling book by Stephen Chbosky, is going to ruffle a few feathers. One scene in particular, when her character and her slightly outcaste-ish friends put on a production of the Rocky Horror Picture Show, has her wearing only a (conservative, mind you) bra. That alone is enough to get the Harry Potter boys in a tizzy.

I saw the film at a small screening Emma put together when I was in LA last week. I hadn’t read the book and I didn’t know anything about the film, apart from the appearances of Watson, obviously, with Logan Lerman and Ezra Miller, both of whom I think are fabulous new faces in film. (Well, not that new to me. I’ll confess I did recently watch Lerman in ‘The Three Musketeers’ when there was nothing else to watch on a flight to Paris.) I had mistakenly thought the film was lighter fare, a newer version of a ‘Clueless’ or ‘Ten Things I Hate About You’ for the new generation. I was wrong. Two hours after the film started, I walked out with sloppy, puffy red eyeballs.

Unlike, say, ‘Clueless’ and ‘Ten Things,’ which were set in idyllic California high schools full of rich, oddly attractive teenagers, this film takes place in a place not too dissimilar from where I grew up. And while I never had to deal with the sort of stuff Lerman, Watson and Miller do in the film (I don’t want to spoil it, but it’s some heavy stuff), I knew it was like to deal with bullies, fights, and boring hours in school libraries. Fun fact: I was in the high school marching band for three years. Not exactly a badge of cooldom, let me tell you. This is an honest, forthright story about a couple of kids, kids that I could have known when I was there age, coming of age and dealing with life, love and adolescence. There are some great comedic moments, many provided by Mae Whitman’s brilliant character, and moments of genuine pain.

The film made me laugh, and yes, it made me cry. (Shut up!) I loved Lerman’s performance, and I was endeared by Miller for reasons that will become apparent when you see the film. And I just adore Emma. It was nice to see her doing something out of the realm of magic. She also does an American accent, which was weird for me to see at first. But not as weird as the aforementioned Rocky Horror scene. Which she looks beautiful in, by the way.

IndieWire added an intriguing description of Emma’s character. 

The most surprising shots from the week come from Emma Watson, currently filming Sofia Coppola’s latest examination into the vapid pursuits of wealth and fame, “The Bling Ring.” Sporting ripped jean shorts, high heels, and a tattoo, Watson has made clear to the parents of 10-year-old Hermione fans that she’s not be trusted, and to the rest of the internet that she’s relishing the chance to try something new. Strangely enough, it recalls Elijah Wood’s attempt to step out of Frodo’s shadow in “Sin City” as the cannibalistic serial killer Kevin, but while Watson isn’t going quite that far, she’ll be portraying a rather disturbed character nonetheless.

About the film they added this:

We found Coppola’s script to be trading in the director’s usual themes and characters, but energized by the docu-drama immediacy and feel, resulting in a caustically funny examination overall. “The Bling Ring” is filming now, and is scheduled for release in 2013.
