Love, Simon snuck up on me and shocked me. I didn’t think I was going to be so affected by the film. It didn’t start off strong. But it was a sleight-of-hand by director Greg Berlanti to hit the story’s point home halfway through the second act.
I enjoyed myself so much watching it.
It was an amazing experience to watch this at the cinema. The film winds up the audience to a frenzy for its last act and the whole crowd was cheering and screaming and rooting for Simon until the end.
Even I ended up applauding at the end along with everyone else.
Like I said in my review, I wish a film like that was shown when I was younger. Something so heartfelt and kind and tender and gentle. I was lucky to be born to a family that understands and accepted me for exactly what I was and I never had to hide who I am from them and from the world.
But it would have made growing up less lonely. I’m happy for this generation to have a film like this for them to accept with open arms.
