The Perks of Being a Wallflower

'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' deftly grasps the pains and joys of high school.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
John Hughes, for all the love people heap on his ’80s teen movies, was far too easy on high school. Maybe your high school experience was different than mine — and, if so, congrats. For many of us, however, those years were a marathon of self-pity, heartache, passion and anything else you’d find on an album by The Smiths.

Straight outta high school

Local rapper Kulprit D comes of age in the hip-hop game with his latest project.


Music

Louis Fowler

Dewey Binns — High Character


Hip Hop/Rap

Joshua Boydston
A lot of hip-hop is pure escapism: fantasies about fast cars, attractive women and having more money than you know what to do with. High Character is not that; it’s about as real and down-to-earth as it gets, while still taking the time to appreciate the small things the world gives us.

A real-life slice of chess pie.


Documentary

Rod Lott
At I.S. 318 junior high in Brooklyn, N.Y., the “geeks are the athletes,” and Brooklyn Castle is the story of how these inner-city kings and queens fight to keep their standings.
