Pick of the Day: Perks of Being a Wallflower

Set in suburban Pittsburgh in 1991-92, this film, which is based on a best-selling novel by Stephen Chbosky, explores the trials and tribulations of an introverted high school freshman who seems destined for four years of hell until he’s befriended by a free-spirited brother and sister who jokingly call themselves “Slut and the Falcon.”

Perks of Being a Wallflower screens at the RPL Theatre tonight at 7 p.m. Here’s the trailer:


A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.

We believe Prairie Dog‘s unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
