Teenage years are difficult enough, but for 17-year-old Simon there is the added complication that he is gay and hasn’t told any of his friends or family. When he starts chatting online to another student in the same situation, he thinks he might have found the confidant he desperately needs, but then his emails fall into the wrong hands. A refreshing, inspirational and funny take on the coming-of-age movie that is impossible not to fall for.
(2018 USA 110 mins)
Presented by the SWCHS LGBTQ+ Allies group.
Clearly styled after the milestone John Hughes teen movies of the 1980s, the film’s astute ensemble approach underlines how all high-schoolers, gay or straight, struggle with self-esteem and finding the right moment to tell someone you fancy them … Accessible and inclusive, this is a major pop-culture breakthrough, offering authentic validation for LGBT teens, worthwhile insights for hetero viewers, and crowd-pleasing entertainment for everyone.
