GTTG film review: Love, Simon

Our review rating (out of 5): ♥♥♥♥♥
Plot summary:  A teenage boy (Simon) is a regular kid with a normal life but he is keeping a secret from everyone – he’s gay. This story, told from Simon’s perspective, starts from just before his secret looks set to be exposed.

What we liked: When we first read bout this movie we weren’t sure – a lot of these teenage films aren’t great – they veer too much in one direction – but this movie has everything – funny moments, sad moments – it’s a sweet, sentimental and fun movie. Even if you’re not a fan of teenage coming of age movies normally, this one really breaks the mould – heartwarming and also often light-hearted, this movie is well acted, entertaining and also very relevant in today’s world.

What we didn’t like: To be honest – nothing! One of our favourite movies from this year so far!
