Love is so beautiful！
Just a beautiful and refreshing film---I've waited months to see this movie and I was not disappointed in the slightest. Even though the book was great, the movie was somehow much better. I highly recommend this movie to anyone and everyone.
EVERYTHING AND MORE---Like stepping back in time to watch a classic John Hugh's film. Makes you cry for happy ...enjoyable cast some great lines. Especially when dad wants to help set up Grindr account with Simon
2018 keeps it coming---Knowing that kids younger than me will see this makes everything worth it. this is the kind of content we have always needed and are only just getting. To hear Simon say "I'm gay" is so important, we need those words not just implications. 2018 cinema is beginning to normalize these things that have been pushed to the side. Love, Simon is here to show us that being LGBT+ is completely okay and there is a happy ending to being a LGBT+ teen/kid. Content praise aside, the film succeeds as a rom-com, I laughed along with the audience at the clever jokes but also held back tears at the all-too-real events in the film. Casting was good, soundtrack was good, everything was very good. It's nice to see a movie with the main character being gay and not just be a flat character lacking depth. The main cast was also diverse instead of completely white-washed. All in all, I recommend this movie to anyone and everyone. It's another step in the right direction for cinema and I hope we continue this movement towards inclusion and representation.
Perfection.---'Love, Simon.' This film.I've never once seen a film that's so true, so relatable and so real. Every single character and every single storyline within this movie is so parallel to things that have happened in my own life it's crazy. This is a film that made me laugh out loud, made me reflect on my own life more than any other movie has ever done and made me cry openly with the actions and emotions that are on the screen so accurately portrayed and raw for the audience to see. This film tackles coming out and homophobia like no movie I have ever seen, this isn't just a singular story about how it feels to be gay, how it feels to come out to family and friends, it's an educational film that everyone should go watch.They say in the movie like they feel like a Ferris wheel, sometimes they're on top of the world and other times they've hit rock bottom. This relates to me on every level.Being gay and coming out are some of the hardest things to do (from personal experience) and this realisation and event in a persons life isn't always replicated or represented in a way that's true. 'Love, Simon' does this, it shows it how it was for me, how it was for so many and I'm so thankful that this film was made.It's based on a book that I'm going straight out in the morning to buy and read because it's a story that I don't want to forget, it's a story I could have written myself, it's a story you all need watch.
A Film Filled With Heart and Charm---Good: The cast does an amazing job overall and at times feels realistic, but Nick Robinson is the standout and acts like a genuine high school student dealing with a problem without going over the top. Robinson's family and friends work well with each other and have a connection. The writing and direction from Greg Berlanti make the film feel fresh even if it appears to be another teen romance. The film is filled with a lot of emotion and heart. The movie is paced evenly with its entertaining, comedic, and emotional moments.Bad: Although the writing is very well done, I do not agree with some of the plot points that do occur. Nitpicking: A few jokes fall flat and the principal just becomes a source of comedic relief and does not benefit the story.Overall: I will say that "Call Me By Your Name" is a better film overall, but "Love, Simon" has heart and wit and provides for an enjoyable watch. For a high school student, this movie can be relatable by showing the struggles of having a crush or secret and how it affects others. I hope more commercial films will start to produce more coming-of-age films instead of indie films always being the go-to when it comes to seeing great teen dramas. 3.75/5
A very very special movie...please go watch it with your family and friends!!!---Saw the special preview in Canada today. I have to say, this is definitely one of the best movies I have ever seen. So pure, so fresh, so heartwarming and so authentic. Reminded me of the struggles that I went through as a teenager, trying to come out and just to connect with someone who would understand what I was experiencing. I cried and laughed with the characters, specially Simon. I went in thinkng I was going to watch a good movie, came out with a heart filled with tenderness and joy. This movie is overflowing with moments which will make you proud of who you are. A definite must-watch. And not just for the LGBT community. 9/10
High Expectations Met---Love, Simon is a heartwarming, honest and witty adaptation of Becky Albertalli's praised-worthy book. It is undeniable that Simon's story is a universal one that many people from all walks of life can relate to in one way or another. It is extremely difficult for book to film adaptations to translate properly, however, having read Simon Vs. The Homosapiens Agenda, I believe Love, Simon is a truthful adaption of such a beloved novel. The performances from the cast exceeded all expectations, especially Nick Robinson's portrayal of Simon. Kudos to Jennifer Garner, Josh Duhamel and especially Tony Hale and Natasha Rothwell who undoubtedly elevate this film to greater heights. The direction from Greg Berlanti should also be lauded as it is apparent this film wouldn't be what it is if it weren't for his vision. All in all, I am extremely happy I was able to see these characters that have lived in the pages of one of my favorite books come to life. A+
Love, Simon is more likely to be remembered for what (or rather who) it represents rather than what it achieves---Every generation has its own coming of age story. For kids growing up in the "plugged in" age, Love, Simon will prove to be a relatable look at high school life at a time when nothing stays hidden for long online. With the web at their fingertips, rumours spread like wildfire and secrets are shared quicker than a game of Chinese whispers. In Simon Spier's (Nick Robinson) case, his secret is that he's gay. The story follows Simon after a fellow closeted classmate comes out online under the pseudonym 'Blue'. Tracking down Blue's email address, Simon reaches out to him using his own alias and, under the shield of anonymity, the two quickly become digital pen pals. Sharing their thoughts and feelings with each other, things start to get complicated after Simon realises he might be falling in love with Blue and starts attempting to uncover his identity. Part of the film's fun is guessing along with Simon who Blue may be. To keep audiences on their toes, the film adopts numerous narrators for Blue and this playfulness keeps the film engaging even when it feels familiar. Moreover, the film's genuine portrayal of gay teen romance feels like a watershed moment for the well-worn coming of age narrative. A gay protagonist coming to terms with his sexuality like any other teen will speak strongly to an underrepresented audience and the film recognises this prerogative. At the same time, the film's success lies in its ability to find the shared moments of humour and heart that will appeal to all audiences, irrespective of their gender or sexual orientation.Unfortunately, the film goes for grand gestures when dealing with Simon's complex feelings and a few scenes feel excessively Hollywood-ised as a result. Most egregious is the films' climactic scene where, without giving much away, Simon stages a public forum for his anonymous pen pal to reveal his identity. It's played as a heroic moment for Simon that he's come to terms with his sexuality and is willing to publicly fall in love. However, the over-the-top way the scene plays out is like something you'd see at the end of a hackneyed love story, and it doesn't get a free pass here just because it's a gay love story.Still, much like Simon himself, the film is frequently funny, charming and easy going. It's also fronted by a strong cast of young actors who work convincingly as a tight-nit group of friends who go through their own emotional dramas rather than simply serving as emotional support for Simon. Ultimately, Love, Simon is more likely to be remembered for what (or rather who) it represents rather than what it achieves. The story is far from groundbreaking, but maybe its adherence to formula is a message in and of itself, that straight or gay, love is all the same.
I left the theater with a full heart---I didn't think I would, but - I loved it.The first 15 minutes or so, I cringed a few times, thinking it was going to be too clever, too cute, and too precious for its own good.But even my cynical, hard-hearted self soon melted with the realization that the intelligence, depth, and charm were all legitimate and sincere.I left the theater with a full heart and am confident "Love, Simon" will remain with me as one of my favorites of this new film year.
