LOVE, SIMON

LOVE, SIMON movie poster

Janet's TAKE: #LoveSimon is an uplifting look at teen angst. This modern twist on the John Hughes teen comedies from the 1980s is, at times, an uneven mix between funny and serious. Grade/B
Nick Robinson leads a fine cast in
this message movie.

Synopsis:
Everyone deserves a great love story. But for seventeen-year old Simon Spier it's a little more complicated: he's yet to tell his family or friends he's gay and he doesn't actually know the identity of the anonymous classmate he's fallen for online. Resolving both issues proves hilarious, terrifying and life-changing. Directed by Greg Berlanti (Dawson's Creek, Brothers & Sisters), written by Isaac Aptaker & Elizabeth Berger (This is Us), and based on Becky Albertalli's acclaimed novel, LOVE, SIMON is a funny and heartfelt coming-of-age story about the thrilling ride of finding yourself and falling in love. -20th Century Fox
