Mini Review - Love, Simon

Love, Simon (out Mar 29) marks a milestone in that it’s produced by a major Hollywood studio and has had the widest ever release for a movie with a gay teenager as the leading character. It follows his trials and tribulations as he comes out of the closet and falls in love for the first time. It’s cheesy, unrealistic and formulaic but that can be overlooked as it does a great job capturing the mindset of a teenager coming to grips with his sexuality. Very easy to like. Grade: A-.
