Recently I watched the film ‘Love, Simon’ at the cinema and I wanted to share with you guys why you need to see it

Plot summary - Simon Spier keeps a huge secret from his family, his friends, and all of his classmates: he’s gay. When that secret is threatened, Simon must face everyone and come to terms with his identity.

Before seeing this film, I read the book ‘Simon vs the Homosapiens Agenda’ which is what the story is based on. I really loved the book and was expecting the film to not be as good as what I read. However it was better than what I expected!

Everyone should have to declare one way or another & it should be this big awkward thing whether you’re straight, gay, bi, or whatever

The storyline was very interesting and exciting, and it was funny, sad, and sweet throughout. Also, the acting was really good and the characters were portrayed differently and each had their own unique traits.

The main reason why you need to see this film though, is because of the message it shows. Every teen/coming of age film is about a straight kid and how they fall in love. There has never been a film directed at teens where the main character is a gay boy coming out to his family and friends.

sometimes I feel like I’m stuck on a Ferris wheel

Watching this film can start a conversation between two people and can help those who are gay and going through the same situation as Simon. It encourages people to understand each other, regardless of our sexuality. I think gay people who see this and haven’t come out yet will hopefully feel more confident and will be encouraged to speak out about their feelings.

I also think that this film is an eye opener for people who aren’t gay. Personally, I’m straight so I don’t know what it’s like to come out or to be questioning my sexuality. Seeing this film made me realize how hard it is for gay people and what they go through. It made me think in other people’s point of views and showed me that we all face different problems everyday.

Everyone deserves a great love story

I hope that everyone who watches this will help and encourage people they know who are gay to come out, and support those who have to take that step. And to all the gay people who see this film, I hope they feel more happy with themselves because we are all equal and special, no matter what our differences are.
