The Cast Of "Love, Simon" | BUILD Series

  • Published on Mar 8, 2018
  • 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 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. Watch Berlanti and the cast as they discuss the film.

    I LOVED "Love Simon"! I was "late to the fair" but, I finally saw the film and it was wonderful. The most stirring scenes, for me, were: Leah's discussion with Simon about his lack of sensitivity (that scene brought me back to a similar situation I experienced & I couldn't stop weeping for her and for my younger self -- my heart broke for her). The scene where Simon finally confronts his "cyber-bully" was also very poignant. And, I must say that, although Simon's "exhale" moment with his Mom was very touching, I felt more deeply stirred by the scene between Simon and his Dad -- that scene touched me from the core of my being; it brought visions of how my, very traditional/"manly" Dad would have reacted, if he'd been faced with my identifying as a Lesbian. I cried from my core watching that scene -- Nick & Josh created such an intimate, honest and loving exchange on screen -- really beautifully portrayed. Berlanti handled this beautifully written book with such honest sensitivity. The one thing lacking, for me, was a genuine sense of truth within the relationships between the "friends"; I don't know if the Actors had enough time to truly foment friendships with one another but, I must say, while I loved each of these characters, for different reasons, I didn't feel an AUTHENTIC connection -- the chemistry was not there. For me, the "friendships" seemed inauthentic & somewhat forced. While each of these Actors played their roles beautifully -- most poignantly, Nick -- I didn't feel a real connection, comparable to say, "Ducky" and "Sam" in "Pretty in Pink", between Simon & Leah -- the friendships felt manufactured to me. I wish these wonderful Actors had been given more time to create more genuine bonds -- I think it would have served the film more. Berlanti said the film was shot quickly & it shows in the lack of real authentic chemistry between the "friends". Even in this & other interviews I've seen, the lack of connection is very apparent. Nick is such a sensitive & intuitive Actor that it seems hard for him to fake it. Josh & Jennifer were wonderful, as well -- their connection with each other & Nick felt real. With all that said -- Bravo -- Simon was such a beautifully sensitive & loving embrace for anyone who's lived with their identity cleverly hidden. Such a wonderful coming of age story!...

    It's trully a reflection of my life! How struggle to come out, although my coming out did not end pretty well and only happen to my parent. But it still inspire me so much.
    So sad that this movie wouldn't played in my country though, because LGBT is still very taboo and all you can get is discrimination

    • Elizabeth Trotwood
      Elizabeth Trotwood 10 months ago +1

      Hey there, I'm not Simon but I just wanted to say hello. It is ok and completely normal to have a crush on both a girl and a boy! Simon is pretty cute, right? I have crushes on boys and girls too, and so do lots of other people. You might be gay, or bisexual, or neither, and there is no pressure to know for sure yet. I didn't know for sure that I was bisexual until I was eighteen. As for coming out, that's something that is different for everyone. You don't have to tell anyone about this until you feel ready and want to tell someone you really trust.

    Interesting what Nick Robinson says about Simon not "venturing outside his box". I think that was true in my case. I've always been a bit careful, but having a secret made me more careful. That is one of the effects of being in the closet--you don't feel like you can take as many risks. You end up not knowing yourself as well, since you haven't tested your boundaries. You've stayed stuck inside yourself, in conversation with yourself only, a little bit stunted, nursing a hurt that can only get better after you come out...

    Like Nick was saying at the end, I really enjoy that they're taking the whole teen Rom-com movie and just adding that twist that he's gay instead of trying to have it be like "I'm gay! I'm gay! Simon is gay!" because it really humanizes the LGBT+ community when we're so used to underrepresentation and scorn, or if we're portrayed even a little well, the character is killed off because the obligatory gay character made an appearance and is no longer necessary.
    Okay, that was one sentence, so, sorry if that confused you. Tl;dr: yay! Proper rep that doesn't dehumanize LGBT+ people like so many movies and shows do!
    I'm also super excited for the whole "domino effect" Alex mentioned hopefully happens. This movie could pave the way for more movies about LGBT+ youth, and those could feature teens who are non-white, who arent cis men or cis in general, aren't attracted to only one gender, and/or even possibly a kid who's LGBT+ and is religious simultaneously.
    (I say that last one because growing up in church being LGBT+ and seeing other kids around me in church who are also LGBT+ really helped me realize that you really can be both. And it would be wonderful to see this for all religions because every religion has a majority of people believing you have to be one or the other and that being gay is a sin and it's all very frustrating to have people tell you that the person you truly believe created you hates you for loving someone of the same gender or for not being the same gender thats on your birth certificate. I'm super lucky to have been an ally before realizing my orientation, already trying to say that God still loves you, and not in spite of you being queer. He loves you, period. He has no terms and conditions for that. Oh geez I need to stop before I start rambling even more, but if you want affirmation that God still loves you if you're Christian and LGBT+, please let me know. And if you're not religious or you hate religion, please respect that this is how I genuinely feel, and know that if a God doesn't exist for you, then I love you. Really, I do. It's so important to spread love and oh dear I sound like a hippie but that's okay.)
    Anyway, you are valid, and you deserve to see your face on a screen someday.

      omg i just teared up reading your comment thank you SO much for writing it i'm bi and i've recently kinda realised it and it means so much to hear that bc i'm also religious but i don't go to church bc of what they think there and sometimes ppl assume you can't be LGBT and religious at the same time and me and you are living proof you can! ok wow im really rambling thank you anyway and i really hope that someday there's movies with bi teens and adults where they dont cheat or die or whatever... i really hope that day comes and i feel like bc of love simon the day is a lot closer than i think :D

    What I loved about the book (and will probably love about the movie) is that it really isn't a story about Simon "figuring out" who he is. Simon knows exactly who he is. It's simply a story about how and when he is going to let everyone know who he is. And that mirrors my own experience. "Discovering myself" was never a prominent part of my coming out experience. I knew exactly who I was growing up. I just had to find the courage to let everyone else know.

    there's so many people who are annoyed that it's just another cheesy rom-com or whatever but this one is so important because yes there are a million rom-coms, but 99% have a main character who is straight and at best we get the "gay best friend" stereotype. the lgbt community deserves a basic movie with a character they can relate to in that way. and for once, a movie that wasn't made to show "hey, look! it's a gay person being persecuted! this movie is to teach you all a lesson and show you that you should be more open." just shows a person who happens to be gay and a part of their story is the need to say what the fuck is up my dudes, im gay.

    Usually gay movies are indie dramas
    I love that this movie is a comedy produced by a big production company with a gay character that's easy to relate to for everybody
    Not that gay indie dramas are bad, some of them are my favourite movies, but because this movie seems to be aimed at a broad audience, it feels like it's a symbol that homosexuality is more and more normalized and hopefully this movie will normalize it even more
    Homosexuality doesn't have to be a tragedy !

      I appreciate that as I have grown up in a time where the Q-word has been associated with empowerment rather than oppression, and I can't fully understand how it feels to see it being adopted by our community if it's something you recognise as violent. But I think it's amazing that such a word's meaning can be changed by the strength of a community. To me it is an act of power to take this word and make it our own. Of course I would not smile and walk away if someone who isn't LGBT+ abused me. The difference is that we have taken the word and turned it into a badge of pride.

    • tryptychUK
      tryptychUK 10 months ago

      I just see that as the easy way out. It's far less trouble to accept such things and claim one has accepted it than to directly fight it. So when people call you "faggot" or "dyke" you just smile and walk away.
      No damn way! WE are LGBT. Nothing else.

    • Elizabeth Trotwood
      Elizabeth Trotwood 10 months ago

      I understand that it must be difficult, when you have fought against the word and experienced it as a slur, to hear it being called empowering. But it truly is so for myself and my peers, and I believe that fighting to stop young people using it is actually, unintentionally, disempowering to the LGBT+ community. There may be black people who hate the N-word but most use it in the same way LGBT+ use the Q-word and view it as a symbol of power, self-love and freedom. Taking words of hate from the oppressors and infusing them with love and acceptance and pride.

    • tryptychUK
      tryptychUK 10 months ago

      @Elizabeth Trotwood:
      It's not about "policing", it's about education.
      Maybe you might like to ask African Americans who fought with the civil rights movement about being called the "N" word by their own people these days.
      Many of us fought to stop people calling us such names, and these idiots think it's trendy and cool to bring it back. It's not empowering, it's ignorant, rude and inconsiderate.

    • Elizabeth Trotwood
      Elizabeth Trotwood 10 months ago

      @tryptychUK - I know some LGBT+ people are uncomfortable with the q-word due to its history as a slur, and it's their prerogative not to use it in that case. However it's not their prerogative to police other LGBT+ people's reclamation of the word. There's a massive generational gap, and for most younger LGBT+ people it's not at all offensive but rather empowering.

    It's wonderful to see such an honest depiction of "finding oneself", as a young adult -- a theme that can be appreciated universally -- within the framework of a "coming out" story. Nick Robinson is such a sensitive & intuitive Actor -- really beautiful to look at, simply because he seems to be so thoughtful in his portrayal of varying characters. I will forever love his "Olly" -- that love story, for a biracial Latina Filmmaker, who never saw myself on film, as the object of beauty & desire, at that age, to me, was also very revolutionary. Beautiful & equally gifted Amandla Stenberg & Nick Robinson, hands down, are the most compelling characters I've ever seen as young romantic counterparts on screen. Frankly, their chemistry & seemingly, genuine attraction for one another was far more sensual & stirring than some of the "R" rated adult romances I've seen on screen...I'm happy for Nick -- his first starring role (for a big studio project -- his "Joe" in the Indie film "Kings of Summer" was his first lead & an incredible coming of age story) seems to be one that will propel him to greater, more challenging roles. Looking forward to seeing his upcoming Indie film with Rosario Dawson...You're beautiful Nick -- stay humble & down-to-earth -- qualities like those are hard to come by in Hollyweird!...To me, you're the new "River Phoenix" of your generation -- darkly sensitive & human in your beauty....

Look forward to seeing him grow and further his career in the film industry 🎬 I think Indie Films are the way to go to keeping oneself ‘down to earth’ .., and away from, quote: ‘Hollyweird’ (love this reference). Stay ‘real’ Nick !! 😊
