Not your average love story. I certainly hope that some eyes are opened when they see this movie. Your loved ones are still your loved ones, who they love doesn't change that one bit. ♡
The most touching scene is the most conventional, an intimate moment between Simon and his mother, Emily (Jennifer Garner). Will she or won’t she accept him as the person he is? Love, Simon is many things, but not Greek tragedy.
I’m happy to see a major-studio teen film wrestle with homosexuality and life in the closet as more than a comical subplot, even though I wish there had been a more engaging character to build that progress around.
It’s an expertly carved chunk of cheese. But taken on its own, limited terms, Love, Simon is also a charmer — warm, often funny and gently touching, tickling rather than pummeling your tear ducts.

Movie Info & Cast
Simon (Nick Robinson) has kind of a lot on his plate. There’s the usual high school stuff – friends, classes, being seventeen in general. And then there are the complications, like the fact that he hasn’t told his family or closest friends that he’s gay. Or the fact that he’s fallen hard for an anonymous classmate he met online but can’t seem to find in person. Or the fact that the emails he’s shared with his online pal have been discovered by another classmate, who is now blackmailing Simon into being his wingman. Can Simon find love and be himself, or will his precarious teenage existence come crashing down around him?
Love, Simon is a charming modern coming-of-age story, at turns hilarious and heartwarming. Directed by Greg Berlanti (Arrow, Supergirl</em), the film also stars Josh Duhamel, Jennifer Garner, Katherine Langford, Alexandra Shipp, Logan Miller, and Keiynan Lonsdale.

Did You Know?
- Although the movie is titled "Love, Simon," it was actually an adaptation of the book "Simon vs. The Homosapiens Agenda." The movie originally had the same name as the book, but it was too long to say, hence the name change.
- While attempting to flirt with Lyle, Simon says his first name, Simon, means "one who hears" and his last name, Spier, means "one who sees". But Simon pronounces Spier like "spear", where in this instance it should have been pronounced like "spyer"; i.e. "one who spies". Presumably the line was taken directly from the novel, and the filmmakers seem to have missed the point. It raises the question as to whether novelist Becky Albertalli intended for the name to be pronounced "spyer" all the time.
- Simon: Did you know?
- Emily: I knew you had a secret. When you were little, you were so carefree. But these last few years, more and more, it almost like I can feel you holding your breath. I wanted to ask you about it, but I didn't wan to pry. Maybe I made a mistake.
- Simon: No. No, mom, you didn't make a mistake.
- Emily: Being gay is your thing. There are parts of it you have to go through alone. I hate that. As soon as you came out, you said, "Mom, I'm still me." I need you to hear this: You are still you, Simon. You are still the same son who I love to tease and who your father depends on for just about everything. And you're the same brother who always complements his sister on her food, even when it sucks. You get to exhale now, Simon. You get to be more you than you have been in... in a very long time. You deserve everything you want.
