Storyline Heading
Everyone deserves a great love story. But for Simon it's complicated: no-one knows he's gay and he doesn't know who the anonymous classmate is that he's fallen for online. Resolving both issues proves hilarious, scary and life-changing.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - This romantic comedy/drama is centered around a teen male coming out with his homosexuality, so those sensitive to the issue should be warned. That theme aside, this is very mainstream and accessible in form and execution, reminiscent of the 1980s teen films from John Hughes, and fans of lead Nick Robinson will be pleased. Familiar adult faces such as Jennifer Garner, Josh Duhamel, and Tony Hale have key supporting roles. There is also some mild language and teen drinking.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good The movie succeeds in its goals: provide accessible characters, offer a solid (if somewhat idealized) depiction of the difficulties faced by closeted gay teenagers... It's a well-made, affable movie that should provide an entertaining two hours for all but the most virulent homophobes.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good People were talking back to the screen or gasping in sympathy or howling with laughter. When Simon's anonymous crush finally revealed his identity, the audience erupted into screams and applause. There was a feeling of cathartic release in the theatre, unique in my experience, especially with teenage rom-com fare.

USA Today Full Review
Very Good ...not only historically significant but also truly excellent. 'Love, Simon' charms by giving gay teen romance the John Hughes treatment. Young and old, jocks and nerds, geeks and freaks and everyone in between should be able to find something to adore in Love, Simon.

NY Post Full Review
Good ...is as sweet as a pecan pie baked by Dolly Parton. It's a canny blend of "Degrassi” and John Hughes: "Love, Simon” is the rare, feel-good gay movie. ...a million miles away from the heavy gay-themed films of yore.
