I remember when I first watched ‘The Perks of Being Wall Flower’, I was pleasantly surprised. I had no expectations walking into the film, but I walked out completely mesmerized. Since then, I have seen the film at least half-a-dozen times more. I was so in love with the film that I specifically visited Pittsburgh just so that I could see and feel the locations where the film was shot. I even drove through the Fort Pitt tunnel. And as you might have guessed, it was amazing. I am so happy that over time the film has gained a cult status. It is as popular among teens as it is among adults. We also declared it the best teen movie of all time (even though, it is as much an adult drama).
For those who haven’t yet seen the film I would strongly advise to give it a try. And for those who love The Perks of Being Wall Flower, let me give you a few recommendations. Here is the list of movies similar to The Perks of Being Wall Flower that you shouldn’t miss. You can watch several of these movies like The Perks of Being Wall Flower on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime.

A teenage love story featuring Oscar winner Heath Ledger this movie is all about teen love, and how difficult it is to win the heart of the girl you love.

Cameron has to make Bianca’s stubborn and introvert older sister Kat (Julia Stiles) fall in love with someone if he wants to take Bianca out. He chooses Patrick Verona (Heath Ledger), a secluded guy about whom a whole host of scary stories have been concocted. A funny, cheeky, and touching love story about four people entirely different from each other, this film showcases a very different part of Heath Ledger’s acting arsenal.
