Love simon

And yet, for me, it was also a fraught experience, both pained and giddy, cheering and dismaying. Love, Simon is the first major studio film about a gay kid coming out. Which is a rather big deal, even if the movie is just a spring comedy. Love, Simon arrives poised to accommodate a lot of baggage, with each gay person who sees it hanging a little of their own on the movie or, I suppose, just choosing not to engage with it at all. The thinking—and part of the marketing strategy—is that Love, Simon will offer an opportunity to have a certain burden lifted, that it will do the honorable representational work of letting us see our past and present and future selves on the big screen in warm and celebratory ways. We will see Love, Simon and feel counted, finally. And, in some ways, yeah, I did. Why not more gay? Cherished as the sparse apartments and simple photography of so many beloved Strand and TLA releases are, gay stuff looks good on a bigger budget. Though I wish his Simon read, frankly, a bit gayer, Robinson is no doubt a charmer, a handsome guy who gives a committed, sensitive performance.

It centers on Simon Spier, a closeted gay high school boy who is forced to balance his friends, his family, and the blackmailer threatening to out him to the entire school, while simultaneously attempting to discover the identity of the anonymous classmate with whom he has fallen in love online. Critics praised the film for its "big heart, diverse and talented cast, and revolutionary normalcy", describing it as "tender, sweet, and affecting" and a "hugely charming crowd-pleaser" that is "funny, warm-hearted and life-affirming", with reviews comparing it to the romantic comedy-drama films of John Hughes. A television series titled Love, Victor , set in the same universe as the film, premiered on June 17, on Hulu , with Robinson serving as the series' narrator. Simon Spier is a closeted gay high school boy living in a suburb of Atlanta , Georgia. He has a close and loving family—parents Emily and Jack, and sister Nora—as well as three best friends: Nick and Leah, whom he has known most of his life, and newcomer Abby. One day, Leah informs Simon about an online confession of a closeted gay student at their high school, known only by the pseudonym "Blue". Simon begins communicating with Blue via email using the pseudonym "Jacques". The two confide personal details and form a connection. However, their emails are accidentally discovered by another student, Martin, who is infatuated with Abby. After learning his secret, Martin blackmails Simon by threatening to make his emails public unless he agrees to help Martin win over Abby.

Story-wise, the movie moves along well, telling a surprisingly intricate tale of crushes and secret identities. And it is hard to dramatize e-mailing on film. I am, and I survived. So, all of that is good. I left the theater a little jumpy and lightheaded, laughing with a friend about how silly and flushed we felt. Or kiss someone! It was a fleeting high, though. By the time I got home from the theater O. I think it has something to do with the kind of imagining we gay adults are made to do about a movie like this. But is it a healthy one? Of course adults owe it to young people to educate them, to provide for them, to help clarify the emotional world for them.

But whether or not Gen Z-ers find something nourishing and of value in the movie, what are we gay adults to do with it? Does it even matter what we do with it? All that sweet longing for a teenagehood I never had—and a movie that I never got—hardened into a regret, a bitterness.

Love, Simon is not being marketed to gay adults expressly, but plenty of gay adults will see it—hungry for this first moviegoing experience, the one largely denied to them as kids. Which is good. I hope they love it, and that its intended audience of teens loves it, and that the movie makes a boatload of money. And I hope some of that money will then be used to make studio movies about, and for, gay adults, and gay old people, and gay people who are gayer than Nick Robinson, and gay movie critics staring down the barrel of their 35th birthday.

All kinds of gay people! And your gay life, and your gay life, and your gay life. Do it for them, Hollywood. And for us, too. Will be used in accordance with our Privacy Policy.
