Love, Simon

He’s done keeping his story straight.


Love, Simon
This well-rated offbeat romance is a coming-of-age tale about the titular teenage boy, Simon, who goes through a different kind of Romeo and Juliet story. He has a love connection with a boy, Blue, by email, but the only problem is that Simon has no idea who he’s talking to. Simon must discover who Blue is... and along the way, he tries to find himself.

Herman Eloff quote iconI couldn’t help but think how much easier my own coming out journey would have been if a film like this existed when I was younger. I hope that teens watching Love, Simon know that they aren’t alone. Love who you want to love, don’t let anyone tell you any different. You deserve your own great love story.

ScreenIt
Jim Judy quote iconWhile not ground-breaking in any way outside of being the first offering from a major studio to feature just that, Love, Simon is nonetheless an engaging, entertaining and thought-provoking film about what it’s like to have to hide one’s sexual identity even in today’s seemingly more enlightened age.

Tomatometer quote iconove, Simon hits its coming-of-age beats more deftly than many entries in this well-traveled genre -- and represents an overdue, if not entirely successful, milestone of inclusion.
