Movie Info

Everyone deserves a great love story. But for seventeen-year old Simon Spier it's a little more complicated: he's yet to tell his family or friends he's gay and he doesn't actually know the identity of the anonymous classmate he's fallen for online. Resolving both issues proves hilarious, terrifying and life-changing. Directed by Greg Berlanti (Riverdale, The Flash, Supergirl), written by Isaac Aptaker & Elizabeth Berger (This is Us), and based on Becky Albertalli's acclaimed novel, LOVE, SIMON is a funny and heartfelt coming-of-age story about the thrilling ride of finding yourself and falling in love.

Critic Reviews for Love, Simon

All Critics (239) | Top Critics (62)

Love, Simon works because it feels like a love letter to a specific queer internet borne of staying up late, sweaty and paranoid, on the family computer.

This beguiling romantic comedy offers a fresh take on the familiar premise of a high-schooler trying to fit in.

March 5, 2020 | Full Review…

The film is a landmark in LGBTQ representation, but succeeds on its own merits.

April 13, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Sweet and moving as it often manages to be, the film is comfortingly average, in its way - the point of it not to stand out, but fit in.

April 12, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's highly unlikely you'll read a review of this film that doesn't contain the word "adorable". It's equally unlikely that you'll be able to watch it without grinning from ear to ear.

April 8, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The high school teen romcom is reborn for 2018. Funny, sentimental and smart: John Hughes would be proud.

Audience Reviews for Love, Simon

One of the better teen movies I have seen lately. Sweet, funny, light, even with it's difficult theme. I could see myself rewatching this at some point.

The impression one gets while watching this movie is that everyone tried too hard to make it as adorable as possible, but it doesn't even care to avoid the most basic romcom clichés, especially in its third act when things become too sappy, silly and contrived.

½

A sweet coming out story that normalizes being gay, however, hits some standard beats in the coming-of-age genre and occasionally forces sentimentality upon its subjects. The representation and joy the film depicts makes up for its overall lack of nuance. Let there be more pictures like Love, Simon, and hopefully in the future, add some subtlety. What we have now, though is a film that could ease the pain of many teenagers and those who see themselves in Simon's plight, and help them accept who they are. Rating: 71
