“Love, Simon” was released on March 16, 2018 in theaters throughout the country and had audiences overwhelmed with love everywhere! The director, Greg Berlanti, created this film about a group of typical high school friends who have been close since they were very young. One of the boys in the group, Simon Spier, comes out as gay, and the movie realistically follows his struggles after his coming out of the closet. Simon believes that everyone deserves a great love story, no matter who you are and whom you like.

Simon Spier started the film as a fairly popular high school student and was well liked by everyone. He began talking to people in online chats because it was a way to explore his sexuality while staying hidden from the students at school. He realized for himself that he was gay but did not tell anyone besides the anonymous person he had been talking to secretly. Neither boy knew the other’s identity but Simon was determined to find out who his love interest was.

The movie, “Love, Simon,” has already generated over $40 million dollars in the United States and has swept audiences away with its heart wrenching love story. It has also been very welcomed by the LGBTQ+ community. The community is happy to finally have a love story that portrays a gay couple because straight love stories are the norm. The movie also presents the changes teenagers go through in life and how they deal with them. Teenagers are thrilled that this movie about 17 year olds just like them is very relatable and makes them feel like they are not alone in their struggles.

Hurry and get your popcorn and tickets to fall in love with “Love, Simon” while it is still in theaters!
