Dr Cult-O M.E. Reviews “Love, Simon”

Dr Cult-O M.E. | Independent Movie Review

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.
