I love teen driven films where I can imagine the lead being a student at my school and not being a narc. In “Love, Simon,” Nick Robinson definitely delivers.
Instead of spending the movie chasing after a lost love, Simon is chasing love within himself and the people around him in a way that has never been captured on the big screen before.
I could relate hard to the Simon character, even though I’m straighter than a stick. All I wanted for him in the end was happiness.
