In theaters Sept. 14, Wallflower centers on high school freshman Charlie (Lerman) as he tries to survive the trials and tribulations of being a teenager. Along the way, he meets Sam (Watson) and Patrick (Miller), who help him -- for better or worse.

The opening moments of the trailer sets up the story, with Charlie writing a letter the night before the first day of school. It's clear he is a loner. But things quickly change when Sam and Patrick befriend him, introducing him to a life he never would have thought was possible.

Readers of the book will know that Charlie harbors a crush on Sam and in one particularly touching scene in the trailer, the two share a moment in the bedroom when they discuss the idea of love. 

Wallflower co-stars Paul Rudd, Mae Whitman, Nina Dobrev, Kate Walsh and Dylan McDermott.
