It’s been quite some time since we’ve got excited for a teen movie, but here at Critical Popcorn, we can’t help but look forward to Love, Simon, the latest teen comedy-drama to grace our screens. Directed by Arrow co-creator Greg Berlanti, Love, Simon looks set to be funny, tearful and heartwarming in equal parts.
To get us even more geared up for the film’s release next month, 20th Century Fox have sent us this clip, to further whet both ours and your appetites:
Everyone deserves a great love story. But for seventeen-year old Simon Spier it’s a little more complicated: he’s yet to tell his family or friends he’s gay and he doesn’t actually know the identity of the anonymous classmate he’s fallen for online. Resolving both issues proves hilarious, terrifying and life-changing. Directed by Greg Berlanti (Dawson’s Creek, Brothers & Sisters), written by Isaac Aptaker & Elizabeth Berger (This is Us), and based on Becky Albertalli’s acclaimed novel, LOVE, SIMON is a funny and heartfelt coming-of-age story about the thrilling ride of finding yourself and falling in love.
LOVE, SIMON stars Nick Robinson as Simon, with Katherine Langford, Alexandra Shipp, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., Miles Heizer, Keiynan Lonsdale, Logan Miller, Jennifer Garner, Josh Duhameland Tony Hale and is directed by Greg Berlanti. The film is an adaptation of Becky Albertalli’s bestselling 2015 YA novel Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda.
