Movie Info

Everyone deserves a great love story, but for 17-year-old Simon Spier, it's a little more complicated. He hasn't told his family or friends that he's gay, and he doesn't know the identity of the anonymous classmate that he's fallen for online. Resolving both issues proves hilarious, terrifying and life-changing.

    Beautiful. It felt very real.

    Coming from the creator of essentially every CW show currently on air, Greg Berlanti, I didn't know what to expect from Love, Simon. Being that his first film wasn't well received several years ago, how would he bounce back after being hailed as a television genius. Well, it's fair to say he did quite well. Love, Simon is not only a good coming of age film, but a touching romantic drama as well. The catch being that no one knows Simon is gay and he's been secretly communicating with another gay classmate over the internet, who is also unknown. It becomes a story about identity and empathy, and how everyone deals with their true selves differently. I liked that this movie had several moving pieces and it always kept you guessing as to who the "mystery person" Simon was communicated with was. However, I'm not sure the payoff was worth the wait. Fair or not, I was hoping for a more clever conclusion the film long mystery, even if that means using a cliche here or there to get to that point. The film also suffers from one too many characters that Simon has an emotional beat with. Just as you start to connect with his mom, dad, sister, or one of his many friends, the film moves on to the next person. And never truly lets you feel the weight of one of those particular bonds breaking or coming back together. In that way, it's a little too stuffed with material, which is not to say any of them are bad sequences, just not fulfilling. With that said, there are undoubtedly great moments of heart and levity which makes for an always enjoyable film, just not a complete one. 7.4/10

    One of the better teen movies I have seen lately. Sweet, funny, light, even with it's difficult theme. I could see myself rewatching this at some point.

    Universal in that it's not just about a gay teen coming out to the world, but about how scary it is to introduce yourself to the world no matter who you are while specific enough to be a *moment" unto itself. Some really nice performances here, most notably from Nick Robinson, Jennifer Garner, Josh Duhamel, Katherine Langford, and Logan Miller (who won't get the recognition he deserves for what he does here), while the MVP of it all may be Ms. Albright AKA Natasha Rothwell as this high school drama teacher who does not, I repeat does not, GAF. There's also this great idea expressed by a character (IN HIGH SCHOOL!!) that concerns not being a casual person in the sense that they're not afraid to show how much something means to them...unafraid to show how much they care. That may seem like something small, but this straight white guy wishes someone would have assured him of this when he was seventeen.
