    I'm so happy for once that they made a lgbt movie where the main character doesn't have a depressing life. Even we need escapism sometimes

    Love Simon doesn’t really represent gays at all and most straight people don’t understand that so it’s getting sugarcoated

    I liked id a lot. It obviously pleases any sane person who wathes it. Not masterpiece of any kind, it is not supposed to be. Serves its purpose. One of my favorite things was the Whitney Houston moment (so unexpected for me lol). The leasing actor is so charismatic. I had already seen him in a indie film like 4 years ago or so and he was already very charismatic there. I don´t remember the name of the film.

    “I am straight. Am I going to enjoy the movie?”
    Of course you will. LGBT people have been seeing movies featuring straight characters for ages. If you have a little empathy you will have a great time watching this movie.

    Obviously there is a sequel book but plot points won’t work due to a few of the changes ie ages, Leah’s; family, appearance, home, etc.

    Do we need more gay movies? Do we need another straight rom com? I can literally only name this as a gay rom com but every other rom com is about straight people.

    2:00 actually me. Luckily I have Simon's life (in terms of his friends and family) I get to live that fantasy. I have a school filled with LGBT community members and most of the straight people aren't that rude anyway (or they aren't open about their feelings) That scene that Simon had with his father- yeah my dad basically said everything that Simon's dad said and my dad hasn't even seen the movie yet lol. And since LGBT members have such a strong presence at my school if anyone were to be rude to me about being Gay then I have my very own Justice League of friends that can take them down in a blink of an eye.
    I'm lucky but I do know there are those out there who aren't as lucky and what she said in the video is rather important. This is a fantasy and not many people get to live it. Be very careful about who you tell if you're closeted and considering coming out because of this movie

  • Dung Nguyen

    So we aren't going to talk about how the trailer, writing and movie itself is literally geared at the general public with a "straight acting white male" as a default? Like have you looked around the Queer community? We don't need anymore straight acting white guys getting the accolades. Remember Stonewall (the movie not the movement) and how it felt the need to make a straight acting white male the lead?

  • Fernando Rueda

    I will never be able to express how much this movie means to me through words, but I can try. As a gay teen who had come out on multiple occasions I have to say that every coming out scene was captured perfectly. Nick Robinson blew me away with the acting work that he did for this movie. This is the first movie that I've seen in a while where the main character was not overshadowed by the supporting cast. I cried so much in this movie and I am very happy that it is getting the attention it deserves. Hopefully people in the industry will make note of the success of this movie, it's brilliance, and how Simon is portrayed because it's about damn time there are mainstream movie characters that move away from stereotypes. This movie is an instant classic, and everyone should give this movie a shot because it is (as Grace said) a perfect movie.

    Won't disagree with you about Riverdale, but Berlanti was show runner for one of the most perfect seasons of YA TV, S3 of Dawsons Creek. He's not SR on Riverdale

    Saw this with my Str8 best friend and he loved it more than me.
    And I must agree the cast was great, so much so I would have loved it as a TV series to get more if their chemistry. S/N I love you Grace I been following for years but rarely ever comment :) cause reasons

    I really enjoyed the film and I am glad you loved it to.
    I really enjoyed the portrayal of a gay male character, it was so relatable. As a pansexual, this film gave me the courage to come out to my mum and brother, and they were so supportive. Thank you Love, Simon! Thank you.

    I can't get enough of this movie. I've seen it 7 times now. It's such a good feel movie. U get to experience so much emotion and it was so intense at times. Loved the background music during the special moments etc.

  • Ben Daniels

    You absolutely hit the nail on the head when you were saying that you should seek help when coming out, rather than be inspired by a work of fiction. I couldn’t agree more. I’m still trying to think of how to come out. The film helps, but I need assistance and guidance so I know what to say.

  • Precious Bradford

    It was great ❤
    Even with the changes from the book.

  • Brittany Disney/Teacher’s Pet Fan Davis

    I just saw this movie and loved it as much as you did! When you were talking an the audience cheering and clapping at the end, the audience at my screening did that too! Like you said, this is Nick Robinson’s movie. He did a GREAT job making Simon likeable and relatable! This is a great movie, and like you said, it’s not just for LGBT 🏳️‍🌈 people, just like “Call Me By Your Name” and “Moonlight”.

    I really want to see this movie (I read Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda), but it's not being shown at the theater near my college, and I'd have drive out an hour to get to a movie theater that does. I'm hoping to watch it when I go home during the upcoming spring break.

    MIKETHONY Year ago

    It was one of my favorite movie experiences ever everyone was applauding 24/7 at the end and crying. There was a member of the LGBT community across from me and she was so incredibly happy and proud by this movie and couldn't stop crying. It was that good of a movie.

  • A. Lorraine Crittendon

    I don’t think the dialogue between the black characters was realistic or genuine. It felt forced and unnatural. I’d prefer they ad lib. It was the only parts of the movie where it took me out of the mood because it was obvious they were reading from lines. Whereas the other teens had very real speaking parts for their age and demographic. The black kids, only when interacting with each other in the car scene, didn’t fit well with their personalities as the movie set them.

    I can't wait to see this movie sadly in the part of Missouri I live in all my theaters are not playing it. I guess because its to progressive for people here. It makes me sad... I feel like I'm being discriminated against

    I just saw this movie. I have to say, it was perfect. It stayed true to the book, for the most part, and made me nearly cry at four separate occasions. The only thing I would change about this movie is to elongate the sad/emotional scenes because had they been 10 seconds longer, I would have been sobbing on the floor. And I want to cry!!!

    :34 "Do we really need another one of these?" We gay people feel like the answer should be "yes." Straight people may feel they are being inundated with LGBT centric movies, but that's how many gay people feel about being inundated with heterosexual centric or primarily heterosexual centric films. And we gay people can't really avoid them, and don't have many other options.

    Riverdale has redeemed itself in the latest episode The Hills Have Eyes. You should return to it , i hope it stays in that direction because it was that good! It had a very strong LGBT+ scene with "Cheryl" it made a lot of people cry and identify with her. Anyways , thanks for promoting Love Simon, we need more movies like this one!
