Music is good but the storyline is actually fairly offensive

this movie left me crying alone in the movie theater because I was the only person who went without someone with me and when I saw this movie I felt more alone than usual I hope people who feel alone watch this beautiful and emotional movie to know you're not alone

It will definitely toy with your emotions..! It has a very strong message about people that struggle with depression and bullying. People who struggle with Mental illness don’t get the care and sympathy of those with visually recognized ailments. That being said, after you’ve watched it you feel it’s a bit dark and the story a bit ‘wrong’. A lie can easily snowball and this movie definitely does that. Leading the main character to create some horrible lies and I think that takes away from the real message about mental health, depression and suicide.

We need to pay attention to the signs of people hurting. All are hurting one way or the other.

This movie musical moved me in so many ways. It addressed issues necessary to bring to the big screen in a heart wrenching yet beautiful way. This movie will open eyes and hearts for many if they allow it t do so. It's poignant and powerful. I am glad I saw it.

Incredible! I am a huge fan of musical theater and spend a lot of time immersed in this genre of music. I was blown away by the talent, the story and the production. It was so moving and I Pretty much cried half the show. I’m not usually much of a crier. It really hit home with mental health and parent children-Relationships. My 14 year old daughter loved it too. We were both mesmerized by the vocal acrobatics and intensity of the story and emotions displayed. There are a few things that make it pg-13, but the way they are played softens them and made it so I could move past them. Nothing explicit, just a few swears, and some gay jokes and references in the beginning. I like my kids to see only clean content if possible, and I didn’t feel like the gay references were in your face or propaganda oriented, so I wasn’t too bothered by it. Just want to give a heads up to parents who may have strong opinions. The real message of the show is tender and about mental health. Go see!!

It was stunning. How I'd loved to have seen Ben Platt (Evan) on Broadway. He won a Tony award for best actor in 2017 for the play, and he stars in this sensitive gorgeous film. His voice and acting are incredible. It has a beautiful score and ensemble cast

Director Stephen Chbosky badly mishandles the material, resulting in an increasingly frustrating experience in which Evan’s inability to come clean leads to a string of emotional manipulations that sometimes border on cruel.

A weakness for the formulaic, combined with a noticeably weighty running time, continually bumps up against the film’s many fine points.
