Love, Simon (2018) Rated PG-13

Simon is keeping a secret from his family and friends – he’s gay. Starring  Nick Robinson, Jennifer Garner, and Josh Duhamel.

There are quite a few things to say about this film, both good and bad. I thought the story was timely – it fits well with how teens are today. The film accurately captures how teens interact with their peers and parents. However, this film presents the decision to come out as ordinary. Simon’s internal conflict about making this decision is as expected, but other than this, there is minimal conflict in response to his announcement. Wouldn’t we all like it to be that smooth and easy? It’s not – the film sugarcoats the process. I find the film to be so very progressive that in years to come, I don’t think it will be all that regressive. This film is not worth a watch.
