Love, SimonEveryone deserves a great love story, but for 17-year-old Simon Spier, it's a little more complicated. He hasn't told his family or friends that he's gay, and he doesn't know the identity of the anonymous classmate that he's fallen for online. Resolving both issues proves hilarious, terrifying and life-changing.Keywords:

Critic Reviews of "Love, Simon"New YorkerMarch 21, 2018
The film is as sweet as bubble-gum-flavored medicine; it arrives as if without cinematic lineage-unburdened by cinema's history of equating gayness with death. It just stops short of producing a picture of gay attraction.New York Magazine/VultureMarch 20, 2018
It's too sanded down to ever truly snag on something like a real, specific, visceral emotion, but it's got the pop-chorus bombast that will get you to some kind of objective sense of fireworks, one way or another.Rolling StoneMarch 16, 2018
Greg Berlanti's groundbreaking gay romcom is an exuberant gift, a John Hughes movie for audiences who just got woke and the first mainstream studio release to put a closeted teen front and center.Chicago Sun-TimesMarch 16, 2018
As the romantic mystery develops, the light comedy keeps us amused.CNN.comMarch 16, 2018
The story's lightness is, in a sense, the source of its charm.RogerEbert.comMarch 16, 2018
Love, Simon is filled with humor-in its characters, dialogue, and situations-but it doesn't sacrifice emotional depth. The two work in tandem.ArtsHubApril 09, 2018
Love, Simon is filled with love and recognition as it takes the high school rom-com template into new Hollywood territory, and it charms in the process.Daily Mail (UK)April 09, 2018
Thankfully, it's nicely made... well acted, as funny as it is gently moving, and genuinely intriguing, as we watch Simon respond to online posts by the mysterious 'Blue', who admits that he is gay but won't reveal his identity.Sunday Times (UK)April 09, 2018
The plot has a few glitches, but generally the film is funny, sweet and thoughtful.Irish IndependentApril 09, 2018
It sticks to the rules of its genre, right down to the cloying music and obligatory schmaltzy climax, and uses them to demonstrate a truth that should be obvious: all love stories are essentially the same.Observer (UK)April 08, 2018
It's highly unlikely you'll read a review of this film that doesn't contain the word "adorable". It's equally unlikely that you'll be able to watch it without grinning from ear to ear.Empire MagazineApril 07, 2018
The high school teen romcom is reborn for 2018. Funny, sentimental and smart: John Hughes would be proud.
