Love, Simon is most definitely one of the best If not the best coming of age films in years! Starring Nick Robinson (Jurassic World, Kings of Summer) as Simon, A closeted high school student on the verge of graduating, who finds himself exploring who he is when he begins an online relationship with a fellow student Blue, Neither Simon nor blue know who each other are, but when Simon is then outed he must come to terms with this massive life change.
Seeing this film as a gay man myself filled my heart with joy because finally there is a film out there that portrays sexuality right, this film finally shows that sexuality doesn’t define you, its part of who you are. I adore the heck out of this film and I think it will be a major influence in the future of cinema.
Films have come a long way and I am glad this film got the attention and the backing it has received because it will (in my opinion) be the start of a new generation of cinema.
I just hope that this film as well as Call Me By Your Name and others will help people watching them find themselves.
I walked out of this film feeling so comfortable in my own skin, something I hadn’t done in so long, I felt so strong. I felt grateful to be part of a generation that finally can have new voices heard.
Love, Simon is a standout film that I strongly suggest you see as soon as possible!
Fantastic, Moving, Funny, Quirky
