Cocteau Twins song mentioned and played in movie
« on: February 15, 2013, 11:14:54 AM »
I just saw the film "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" on DVD, it starred Emma Watson from the "Harry Potter" films.  It was critically well received and was supposed to be a very realistic portrait of high school.  In some ways it was but in too many ways it was "Hollywooded" like so many other feature films. 

Anyways, as a major COCTEAU TWINS fan, I was delighted to hear Watson's character mention the Cocteau Twins song "Pearly Dewdrops' Drops" and the song was played at the end of the film.  Nice! THE SMITHS song "Asleep" from "Louder than Bombs" was also mentioned and played a few times. 

Too bad the film wasn't near as great as the movie.
