Love, Simon (2018)

5aaace669b89eMarch 2018   Ι   1h 50min   Ι   Greg Berlanti


Simon is just a normal teenage boy with a happy family and fantastic friends, but he has a secret. He’s gay. He starts emailing with Blue, whose secrets they both share. Trying to hide a secret is however not the easiest, especially not when Simon is being blackmailed.

This, if anything, is such a lovely movie. I truly enjoy the feel good movies and Love, Simon is just in that category. For being a quite normal and often mentioned topic, I have to say that I have not very often seen “coming out” movies. Tv-series, a lot, but not really movies. I believe that’s a reason why this movie really got me as well, because it didn’t feel like a “oh haven’t we seen this a billion times”.

The main character Simon is quite normal, with a dreamy family we all wish for and amazing friends. There is actually not a lot of things that makes this character special or unique (rather than being homosexual, which I would say is not too special or unique but rather just human). The actor Nick Robinson did a great job in my eyes and I think all the characters and the story in general presented something of a reality most of us can relate to, and that’s just lovely.

There are a lot of cheesy scenes and the end is beautiful but the fact that a group of teenagers is cheering on Simon while his night and shining armor may or may not ride in is just a bit too cheesy, or very romantic, who knows. Either way, this movie is absolutely lovely and it’s definitely worth watching at least once.

My rating: 7.5/10
