Love, Simon (2018)
Everyone deserves a great love story. But for seventeen-year old Simon Spier it's a little more complicated: he's yet to tell his family or friends he's gay and he doesn't know the identity of the anonymous classmate he's fallen for online.

Easily the biggest piece of Right wing non sense propaganda I ever saw.
It is a whirlwind of delight --- attractive actors, stunning couture, spectacular sets and outrageous parties.
The film's masterful storytelling did its job. The message was clear. No need to overdo.
If I need to use three words to explain "Love, Simon," I would say beautiful, beautiful and beautiful. It is such a simple, easy and inspiring story. Just for the sake of making a point, you don't need to complicate things. Make it simple with a powerful message. This film shows us, simple things can be excessively nice. "Love, Simon" seems to be a film about a gay teenager who struggles with his secret because of the pressure of the society, but the film is actually much more than that. It is about all the people who are different than the society, who struggle to fit in, who fail to understand its rules and who have tough time to obey. Most of the time, once again because of the rotten society, its people and its rules, different people think something is wrong with them, and when they don't have the necessary support from their friends and society, they commit suicide or develop self-hate. Films like "Love, Simon" encourages this kind of people, who are not accepted by the society, or who think they will not be accepted by the society, to think there is absolutely nothing wrong with them. "Love, Simon" shows the power of cinema over people. While delivering a powerful message, it also uses an incredibly simple story and language. This film is for everyone. It is for friends, family, people, young or old. It is sharing a universal message. If there is one negative thing to say about "Love, Simon," it is the fact that in real life these struggles may not be solved that easy. Thanks to Simon's awesome friends and family, he gets over the fact that he is gay easily, but imagine a contra-scenario where his family wouldn't accept such a thing, or if he wasn't welcomed by his family, then what do you think would have happened? World is not about America, there are societies who are socially and culturally way behind them, and in those countries, there are people with secrets too. I'm pretty sure that "Love, Simon" is banned in some countries."Love, Simon" is eligible for competing in the 91st Academy Awards. In my opinion it will have nominations for at least two categories. Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role, Nick Robinson, and Best Motion Picture of the Year. I have always wanted to watch critically-acclaimed films in advance, and guess about their nominations, this way I am able to test my knowledge about cinema. Anyway, getting back to the film, "Love, Simon" shows the entire world that a teenager film doesn't need to be stupid and meaningless and only about sex and getting laid. I like the facial expressional and overall performance of Nick Robinson. His performance makes all the difference when combined with this delightful story. Director of the film Greg Berlanti is a very experienced producer but it is not easy to say the same thing when it comes to directing. Before "Love, Simon" he was the director of The Broken Hearts Club: A Romantic Comedy and Life as We Know It. However, you might have heard his name as the producer of TV series The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Arrow if you are interested in Superhero TV Series. I am not, that's why I haven't heard of him until now, but I must say that, as a director of "Love, Simon," he did a very good job. Conversations are up to date and relevant, he doesn't interfere in the story too much and manages to harmonize all the positive components of the film, like the story, performances, situations, reactions and atmosphere. He knows how to get the very best out of an actor.The comma between Love and Simon makes a huge difference. Because in the story, protagonist falls in love with another gay colleague with whom he exchanges mails, and he always signs the mail by saying Love, Jacques, which means Simon in French. Without the comma the name turns out to be Love Simon, but Simon doesn't need anybody's love because he is strong enough by himself. This film is said to be the first film by a major Hollywood studio to focus on a gay teenage romance, but I have to say that "Love, Simon" is not a gay romance. It is a film of self-struggle and standing up for yourself. There is no romance between gay people in the film, I mean this is not the purpose of "Love, Simon" to be understood as a production about gay people. Because it is not. "Love, Simon" is one of the best films of 2018 and a very useful one too, in the means of creating public awareness. I had a lot of fun watching it.
Although most of us don't really get that kind of happy ending. Figured out who Blue was right after that scene with the girl, as exactly the same thing happened to me with someone I liked, so I think this film will be many things to many people, which unfortunately includes those people who will find just about anything to be disgusted with as long as it suits their agenda. What I find most unbelievable is that this movie came out of America, there's hope for it yet.Love, the rest of the world.
After I've read that the protagonist is a gay, it gets my curiosity and wanted me to watch it especially I'm a gay guy. It really gives me a romantic excitement and also a feeling of envy. How I hope that they'd always make a movie like this. Inspiring us and opening our minds that after a rain there a sunshine.Loved, Dota 2
In 2018, it is a lot easier for people to be gay than it was back then, but I'm sure it never gets easier coming out to the people you love..hopefully people around the world watched this movie and they felt at least a little better about coming out to the people that matter the most. This movie is so sweet. I bawled my eyes out. I loved it so much. 100% recommend!
