“Love, Simon” is the epic love film our generation needed. Not only was it a great story, it was a story that touched many. This film really taps into a huge population of America which is the LGBT community.

This film has been known to accurately portray what it’s actually like to be gay. Unlike other films, they recognize that being gay is not what entirely what makes up a person, it’s just a part of their life.

Love, Simon is really a typical love story between two teenagers in high school. The only detail is that Simon is gay and he has yet to come out to anyone. Simon is just trying to figure out the motions of highschool without any motive or reason to want to come out until he found out about blue.

Blue is an unknown student who posted on a school gossip website that he was secretly gay. Simon then gathered the courage to talk to him through email also anonymously.

Through hints about their emails, Simon considers the possibility of who it could be. He fantasizes about who it is, as he struggles to keep his secret safe.

This movie addresses the importance with friendships, family, relationships. “Love, Simon” is a film everyone should watch. It’s important to be an ally to a huge population of our country and this movie shows you just how.

Just in case you feel like you didn’t get enough in the film, there’s actually a book. The book’s title is different so look for it under “Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda,” written by Becky Albertalli.

Overall, this movie was a must see. This movie gets five out of five paws.
