Love, Simon- A Coming Out Movie

Recommended Posts

Haven’t seen yet. Definitely will. The book Simon vs. the Homo sapiens agenda was a wonderful book.

I took my family to see this and it was a really cool movie, my kids all enjoyed it and my husband and I both had wet eyes a couple of times. It's totally worth seeing and it's a mainstream movie that needs our bucks to show those are worth making. Check it out!

 

Here's a few tweets about it from Buzzfeed - hilarious.

I loved it!!! I had to wonder if @Comicality might have ghost-written the original story this was made from. :P

I have to agree with MrM, the plot of this movie reminds me of so many stories I've read, quite a few written right here on GA.  I could easily have seen this as one of Comicality's stories.

I loved the movie... it was charming, and the characters were endearing. I highly recommend going to the theater for this one. :)

I could relate to so many things from my teen years, just I didn't come out during them. This movie is great, but I still say the book is much better ;)

 

Just looked and it has made approximately 40 million at the box office in the US, so I'm sure Fox has seen there is money in it. Let's hope we have more great gay stories and not so much of the cheap stereotype movies that seem to be a dime a dozen. Not saying all are, but think of some of the great low budget movies and how great they would be if they had some money.

 

BTW, me and a pack full theater of mainly teenage girls :P

Last I'd seen it was up over 50 million with a budget of 17. It's just opening overseas so it may have some legs.

 

I bought the book afterward and enjoyed it as well. There are notable differences between them and I'm a fan of both.
