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

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.

Perhaps best known for being the bad guy of the early '90s blockbusters Patriot Games and Sleeping with the Enemy,
Patrick Bergin must be the king of literary adaptation also-rans. He
played Robin Hood in 1991 film that was denied a theatrical release
because Kevin Costner's Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves sewed that all up. He's played Dracula … but in a made-for-TV movie, not a Francis Ford Coppola spectacle.
