This is a John Hughes film for a new generation. Jennifer Garner and Josh Duhamel are perfect as Simon’s loving, supportive parents. Nick Robinson is wonderful as Simon. Simon is a good son, brother and friend with very little rebellious teenage angst. He is an engaging high school senior with a secret. Simon floats between the cliques but sticks with his closest friends. The conflict comes from Simon’s not wanting his life to change, not from his letting people know he is gay. Those closest to him are more upset that he was keeping something from them than the actual secret. If the tweens sitting behind me are a sample, this film is an excellent illustration of our changing times. If you are a fan of teen movies, as I am, I recommend this film.
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.
