Keith the Critic Movie Reviews - Love Simon

Up and coming actor Nick Robinson plays the role of Simon Spier. Simon is a teen-aged boy in Atlanta living with his close-knit family. He loves the same things as most teenagers, but he has one big secret. He's gay and no one knows, including his mother, Emily, who is played by Jennifer Garner, and his father, Jack, who is played by Josh Duhamel.

When his best friend, Leah, played by Katherine Langford, tells Simon about an anonymous online post of a student from their high school admitting he's gay, Simon feels some relief. He reaches out to the unknown poster, who has identified himself as Blue. Simon shares things with Blue that he has not told anyone, not even Leah or his other friends, Nick and Abby. Jacques, as Simon calls himself, sets out to find the identity of Blue.

Martin, one of Simon's classmates, is an awkward teen and discovers Simon's emails. Simon will do anything to keep Martin from leaking his secret.

This story is so well told and fitting for the times. It was brilliantly directed and the script is outstanding. It hits on a touchy subject and does so with aplomb. I believe that no one should be afraid to be themselves and this movie does a tremendous job of showing the struggles of a young boy trying to come to terms with his life.

Anyone 13 or older should see this film. I saw it twice and loved it both times. The actors are outstanding. Nick Robinson, Jennifer Garner, Josh Duhamel and the entire cast contributed to this tremendous film. The movie sets an example of acceptance and the actors conveyed this message fantastically.

I gave this movie 4 out of 4 stars.
