Dr Cult-O M.E. | Independent Movie Review
The teen coming out comedy for the post millennial generation. “Love,Simon” covers the issue of social media and longing to be free of hiding in the closet. I was pretty impressed with the charming performers and the comic supporting cast of adults.
The story of Simon, a closeted gay teen in his senior year. He reads an anonymous blog about another teen longing to come out. He begins a distant anonymous friendship that now is at the level of longing, to be loved. He is now being blackmailed by an obnoxious student in order to get the attention of a pretty friend. Predictably, and a series of missteps leading to his outing, Simon is now crushed and losing his pen pal love.
The movie is not edgy, doesn’t even try, not a bad thing to be a safe little charming lark. Corny ending and all is fine. Nick Robinson is a really good actor. Mostly enjoyed it.
