The novel, "Perks of Being a Wallflower" was first published in 1999, but the action is set during the 1991-1992 school year. No explicit year is mentioned in the film, though based on several plot details (i.e. no characters use cell phones or the Internet, the use of records and cassette tapes) and the inclusion of the song "Low" by Cracker on the soundtrack (released in 1993), the movie does imply a mid 1990's setting.

If the movie does indeed take place in the 1991-1992 school year as the book would suggest, during Bob's party the song "Here" by Pavement is played, which was not released until April 1992. See more »
Dear Friend. I am writing to you because she said you listen and understand and didn't try to sleep with that person at that party even though you could have. Please don't try to figure out who I am. I don't want you to do that. I just need to know that people like you exist. Like if you met me you wouldn't think I was the weird kid who spent time in the hospital. And I wouldn't make you nervous. I hope it's okay for me to think that. You see, I haven't really talked to...

I just saw the movie at the Pgh premiere and it was amazing. I was hoping I wouldn't be disappointed because I loved the book so much. The movie is very true to the book. A few things have been omitted or changed but it doesn't change the mood of the story. I think the casting choices were spot on. Emma Watson has a scene in which she tears up and cries and it was amazing. I also appreciate how Chbosky made the parents thoughtful people, unlike most teen comedies. I am definitely going to see this movie again because there was so much to take in. Very well done.
It's also lovely to see my hometown as the backdrop. Pgh is a beautiful city and coming out of the Fort Pitt tunnels into the city is an experience that isn't quite captured well enough in the film. It's still a powerful scene and I teared up watching it.
