The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Sam: Just asking myself why do I and everyone I love pick people who treat us like we’re nothing?

Charlie: We accept the love we think we deserve.

Sam: Then, why didn’t you ever ask me out?

Charlie: I, uh, I just didn’t think you wanted that.

Sam: Well, what did you want?

Charlie: I just want you to be happy.

Sam: Don’t you get it, Charlie? I can’t feel that. It’s really sweet and everything, but you can’t just sit there and put everybody’s lives ahead of yours and think that counts as love. I don’t want to be somebody’s crush. I want people to like the real me.

電影裡的Charlie是一個害羞內斂、溫柔、善解人意的高一男生,不敢表達自己,默默關心總在愛情上遇到壞男人的Sam,希望讓她知道自己值得遇上更好的人,值得更快樂。但我們往往都高估了自已的暗示,以為對方有天一定會懂,很多時候愛意都未能被發現。

坐在成長的列車上,穿過青春華麗的隧道,我們跌跌碰碰,每一件事情都一閃即逝,即使有天那個曾經深愛的「她」不再是朋友,那個曾經陪你度過青春歲月的「他」不再存在,在回憶裡,當下的困惑、悲傷、快樂、覺悟,都是永恆。那一刻….

“We are infinite.”

張開雙手放膽去觸碰可能捉不到的,無論結果如何,只少看得起自己,相信自己值得遇上更好,定能通往出口。
