Synopsis: Everyone 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.
It’s difficult to act like you don’t know the events that will happen in a movie adaptation when you already read the book. It’s hard to feel surprised and feel the thrill of not knowing who Blue really is and/or if Leah has hidden feelings for Simon or Nick; the only way it could be done is if the movie adaptation completely strayed away from its source material and altered some details but for Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda’s movie adaptation, Love, Simon, well…they definitely changed important details that made my jaw drop I almost choked on the food I was eating but for the most part, it was
kind of loyal to the novel.
Love, Simon has been creating buzz on the internet since the day of its release. It is popular among LGBTQ+ groups and pages on the internet and was also praised by critics, celebrities and famous personalities for being a teen romantic comedy we needed in this world where the support and acceptance for the LGBTQ is becoming prominent.
