The 12 Movies of 2012 You Didn’t See, but Should

No. 4. Perfect Sense

Ewan McGregor and Eva Green star as strangers who meet and fall in love amidst a global pandemic that is slowly wiping away people’s senses of touch, smell, hearing and even sight. Intriguing and powerful, this little-known film highlights how strong love can be even when everything else is lost.

No. 3. The Perks of Being a Wallflower

An introverted high school student (Logan Lerman) becomes friends with two older teenagers (Emma Watson and Ezra Miller) in this coming-of-age film set in the 1980s. Entertaining and at times funny, The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a lot of fun. Too bad no one watched it.

No. 2. Your Sister’s Sister

Set almost exclusively in a cabin on an island and featuring no more than three actors for much of the movie, Your Sister’s Sister didn’t have much that a marketing department would view as “splashy,” but it’s still sad that this sweet romantic drama-comedy wasn’t even given a shot at success.

No. 1. The Intouchables

It’s strange to list a movie that made over $400 million worldwide as overlooked, but The Intouchables, one of the most entertaining and engaging movies of 2012, only earned a little over $10 million during its U.S. run and failed to even garner an Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Language Picture.
