Everyone deserves a great love story, but for 17-year-old Simon Spier, it’s a little more complicated. He hasn’t told his family or friends that he’s gay, and he doesn’t know the identity of the anonymous classmate that he’s fallen for online. Resolving both issues proves hilarious, terrifying and life-changing.

Love, Simon Blu-ray a B+.
My first impression while watching this Blu-ray was that despite it being a teen/chick flick it still held its own with great chemistry among the main characters as well as a great storyline that anyone in high school or has gone through high school can relate to.
I really did enjoy this film. There were many things I liked about it. I loved the friendship between Simon and his friends. To me, it was more like a family than friendship. They all had such great chemistry and you could really tell that they knew each other for years. In the film, Simon has a big secret that he hasn’t told anyone. He is gay but unfortunately, his secret is not revealed by him so things start to fall apart. I love the emails between Simon and “Blue”. I think anyone can relate to Simon. To be able to be yourself with someone and have that someone have your back is golden. Especially in high school. I can’t forget Simon. He is the main subject of this film and I honestly loved this character. He comes from a close family and is a great kid. I wouldn’t mind having him in my circle of friends
