I had mixed emotions about this film. I loved it and it was wonderful to see my own experiences represented like that. But at the same time I also felt kind og sad that I didn't have a film like that when I came out more than ten years ago. I wish I wouldn't have had to feel so lonely.

I hate that I kept crying throughout the movie while I was sitting next to my cousin. I hate people seeing me cry in public so I tried to do it low-key since I couldn't help myself. I absolutely relate to the character Simon, in some ways but it's a really good film! Can't wait for the DVD to come out!

I remember watching this film alone in a local theatre where I live. I couldn't keep from sobbing while watching the coming out scenes because they were something I'll never have. My dad's so conservative and very religious that he'll probably kill me if I come out, no kidding. So to see such accepting parents, it hurts, because I feel it's so unfair I'll never be able to exhale in front of mine.

I find it very sad that whenever we talk about gay, we are subjected to the words tolerance and acceptance, when every other species on the planet is referred to as natural selection. Gay is just as natural as straight and it’s only been going on since humans were first discovered!

There's a Kenyan movie that has a similar theme to this outstanding movie ,its called "Rafiki" which means Friend in swahili,unfortunately it was banned by the head of the film classification board Ezekiel mutua yet it's the first Kenyan film to be screened at Cannes...homosexuality is taboo in kenya, yet there is an LGBT community...sigh... i hope things change.

I wish gay people would stop saying they knew they were gay since they "were 5 years old." I wasn't a traditional boy when I was 5. In fact my older brother, didn't have the vocabulary at 9 to call me gay, only that I was "weird." At 5 years old I didn't have a crush on ANYTHING, my life depended on my literally coloring inside the lines , or saw my 5 year brain thought. I was more concerned with being as smart &b talented as everyone in my class, in order to be worthy of being "normal. I didn't know I was gay until i was 14 WHEN THE HORMONES KICKED IN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Everyone in the movie was a sobbing mess during this. Irritates me when straight people say ‘oh, gay kids don’t need this! So many of my friends are gay that *I* need to come out lol!’

and check out the 3rd season of SKAM , a Norwegian high school reality show, especially the 3rd season. Daily Motion has the story with sub titles. Norwegian Public TV
Lots of gay caused syphilis going around.
Gay women also can and indeed have aborted just for high paying jobs that suddenly came up after pregnancy began. It is not a difficult for many women to get pregnant. They could just pay a man to do it it and even get very drunk during the process that is the woman not the man.
Andrew Cunanan was a homosexual killer. Quite a few more like him.
nbkcq28 This poster has no answer for the fact that I proved gays cause most of the syphilis. Totally contrary to what this poster said. Poster is a bad and denying loser.
nbkcq28 (23 days ago)
Wrong. Gays rarely ever have given up kids for adoption. And I've never heard of a lesbian having an abortion, although if she were raped I can see it happening. While you're checking out stats, check out the ones for abortion, child rape, adult rape, murders of all kinds, violent crimes, etc. On second thought, don't. Because there's only a few instances where gays can be condemned. And we don't want to point out the other 99% where straights lead the way.....especially in almost total percentages. lol. Now go ahead and make your "dump reply". Have a nice day hating on gays. It's really pathetic to troll gay vids. But we're used to it.
Google "STD facts-Syphilis and MSM-CDC" it shows how gays make up most syphilis cases.

Nick Robinson is so beautiful. He simply expresses so much sadness, happiness and...well, all of it in his facial expressions and eyes. Excellent actor (he's straight but still perfect actor) Oh my God! I died. Wish my mother said this to ME. Never happened. Need I go on? So happy for young teens nowadays having supportive mothers like this. I know it's a work of fiction, but this scene is so real. He's so cute and is scared people are going to treat him differently as he reveals later to his best friend. I totally related to that part.

I’m sorry but being gay is more than coming out. Hollywood, still will not tell stories of flirting, crushes, falling in love, heartbreak, etc. The ENTIRE movie seems to be about coming out (which EVERYONE can come “out” of different closets e.g. liking a different race, age, being atheist, democratic/republican) is this a GAY ‘movie? (There’s a lot of girls/stereotypically hags) or is this a CHICk FLICk? Is there a “Love scene?” Does the main character have any CLOSE make friends? Is there any FEMALE homophobia b/c I was called the F-word by territorial girls as well. Also, girls told their boyfriends NOT to talk to me. Does the main character get a RELATIONSHIP, not a temporary boyfriend at the end? Being gay is amazing, is the message that? Or just seeking the approval of straight people.
nbkcq28 (20 days ago)
You're really full of yourself, aren't you? People in the closet fought for equality just like everyone else. You don't think that they donated money or even pretended to be a straight ally? And your being able to be out in elementary school, if that's true, came because people of my generation fought tooth and nail to make life better. You've never had to face a mob of homophobes or worry that you'd be killed or any of it. Those of us in my generation made change happen. And we paid a price for it. You've got it much better and yet you seem to turn your nose up at people who have to stay closeted for circumstances that you would never understand. And to throw in that crap about illegal immigrants...what have they to do with anything? Go watch a video here on YT called "Rainbow Connection GMCLA.org" that shows some of the early gay rights activism. See a small slice of what life was like then and realize how lucky you are. So stop hating other gays...closet or not...because we're all in this together. Everyone has to do what they can, based on their life situation.
Keenan Thomas (20 days ago)
NO, we had to FIGHT in elementary school. It's like the current immigrants who want their RIGHTS but after the black people were beaten, bitten by dogs, sprayed down by firemen, and hanged. NOW, they want to just jump over the fence and be "Americans." People in the closet didn't FIGHT for the RIGHT to be married, they had the LUXURY to sit on the side lines and wait for US to make it easier for them to come out.
nbkcq28 (22 days ago)
Good for you and the "millions" of lucky gays who grew up and lived in utopia.
Keenan Thomas (23 days ago)
Not for all gay people, there's millions of us that were never in the closet to begin with.

I’m 22 years old and this film has helped me come out as a bisexual male. I’ve known I’ve been bi since I was 6 but for 16 years I’ve tried to convince myself it was all in my head, or I’m in a phase, but I can’t deny who I am just for the sake of being liked or not living the biblical traditional lifestyle

I thought what the mother said was incredibly touching, but I was pissed at the cursory kiss on the top of the head.....and then she walked out!!! The father's speech, hug and tears were SO much more palpable and supportive. IMVHO

No, john gleason. I felt exactly the same way. They made no effort to put themselves in his place and realize the enormity of what was happening....his secret, the blackmail, everything. When he got bullied at school, they should have immediately backed him up....and none of them did.

I just saw the movie and completely fell in love with it. It exceeded my expectations in every way and it's been so long since I ever felt that a movie could impact us in real life in so many positive ways. This movie made me realise that representation matters so much today because it relfects our society for the better and it gives exposure to those who might not understand stories like this because there were nothing like this shown in past films. I think people's lives will be changed after watching this film and it gives me so much hope and joy. Thank you Greg, Nick and everyone who's a part of this production.

Well, a good place to start would be to keep religion out of the discussion. Religion in a big pot of judgmental hypocrisy!
Craig Lambert (16 days ago)
I am not referring to what is actually printed in black and white in the bible. I am referring to ANY particular religion's literal interpretation and “preachings.” It's disgusting, homophobic, and most definitely hypocritical, (The Roman Catholics, Mormons, Christians and ESPECIALLY whatever f**kedup and warped beliefs are practiced overseas such as in the Middle East, Africa are the WORST). The Middle Eastern and African countries will jail, beat and and execute someone for being gay (based on its religious beliefs) WTF?? Are we living in the Middle Ages?? GEEZ! Time to teach tolerance and acceptance, Not hate and indifference. Hence, why I am VERY AGNOSTIC, almost Atheist.
faridah hanum (16 days ago)
Craig Lambert not so I've read the quran with the translation there's no specific mention on homosexuality or killing them except for the story of lot/lut that was also mention in the bible i believe but the people at that time they were morally corrupted to the extent that they do not believe in the creator at all living life base on desire, lust and wimps that fancy them to commiting incest sleeping around with everyones husband/wife men sleeping with men regardless of what their sexual orientation they were warned by god through their prophet before their land was completely destroyed in Islam homosexuality is a test just like any other suffering in life maybe this is the ultimate test with the highest reward in the afterlife

I am 34 years old and not out, I feel like I lost so much in my life by not being able to be myself all those years, although living in London in the past ten years away from family and being able to be more myself here in London, is still so hard not being able to talk about my life with my family and friends when I go back home for visit, they keep trying to hook me up with girl and at 34 I already passed the age when most of my friends my age are married. My birthday was just last month and I actually felt sad becoming 34 and still in closed. If you not gone through it yourself you don't know how hard every day can be
nbkcq28 (25 days ago)
Maybe it's time for you to come out. Do you really want to live forever in the closet? If your family and friends can't accept who you really are, then all you're losing are false relationships. You'll never know the relief of being honest about yourself if you refuse to be open and honest. I knew that my parents would never accept it...and they didn't. But I felt so much better in my life after coming out. The only difference was that my parents got the same kind of love back that they gave me. Partial...hesitant....never complete. It was sad but better, in a way. I knew where I stood....and they knew how it was to be less tolerated. I made a life for myself and they were on the fringes. It was their own fault. I had to live my life...not theirs.

I loved that it just felt like a teen movie that anyone could watch. I could feel the whole audience smiling and there were a lot of older people in the audience. When Bram and Simon kissed I think that's when everyone went batshit, but the coming out scenes people were crying. Definitely an emotional rollercoaster, but would watch many times again

I loved this movie! I didn't expect to wallop me when Simon (spoil alert) had that living room moment with his mom. HOLY! It took me back to when I came out to my mom who sadly passed six months ago. I was like feeling her right there with me in the theater again. I truly loved watching this film and planned to see it again soon.

Caitlin Villanueva Adapting that into a movie is going to be quite a challenge, given how many changes were made when adapting "Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda" into "Love, Simon" and how many of those changes conflict with what Becky Albertalli wrote in both books. Still, I think with the same filmmakers and cast, it could be accomplished.
Caitlin Villanueva (1 month ago)
Becky Albertalli, the author of Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda, has another novel coming out this April called Leah on the Offbeat. It’s technically a sequel, but focuses more on Leah. Let’s just hope they make a movie adaptation for that too.

Many celebrities have sponsored free screenings of this film in places where it might not be fully accepted or appreciated. This is an awesome way to pay it forward for those gay celebrities who are now very successful. This terrific film needs to be seen by as many people as possible. Take a friend or tell a friend and enjoy a wonderful experience.

George, at this point, it seems like my dad will kick me out if I say one word about my sexuality or the nonprofit I'm starting to help local lgbt+ youth. I'm just glad that I have my mom on my side. They are both Roman Catholic, but Mom is open to conversation, which makes a world of difference.

I went to watch this movie and the theater was packed with teenagers, at first I thought they would be annoying and disruptive but they actually showed more respect for the movie watching experience than most adults. Also, their reactions to what was happening in the movie made my experience so much better. It moved me to tears to hear this new generation rooting for a gay character. I haven't experienced so much joy watching a movie in a very long time.

Jennifer Garner scene was literally so emotional for me. My mom wasn't as supportive in the beginning and she has come such a long way but looking back at when I came out I wish my mom told me that. I really did feel like I finally got to breathe for the first time. Also god why am I such an ugly crier.
mickeymouse2able (12 hours ago)
Fluffy123: Excellent. I honestly never thought of it THAT way. Scarey to go your own way. MAYBE that is why Simon is crying in that scene. That is something I just realized. My sister acts like she knows everything just because she reads on topics like this. Reading is different from experiencing.
Fluffy123 (12 hours ago)
I also found that particular scene very emotional. She said something about him going his own way now or doing this on his own. And it was only when I heard her say that, I realized that that was one of the most painful things for me about coming out. That I had to do it on my own. That I was somehow different and separate from my family. They didn't know anything about those experiences.
