Leave your thoughts about Love, Simon.
Cinema Sight - 10/10 by Wesley LovellWhile it may be a Gen-Z era coming out story, it easily resonates for older generations.
Tribune News Service - 10/10 by Katie Walsh"Love, Simon" exists on a spectrum between "Lady Bird" and "Mean Girls." It has the warm winsomeness of "Lady Bird" and the crackling humor of "Mean Girls," playing with the high school archetypes that film captured so well.
Den of Geek - 10/10 by Laurence LermanWith a modern soundtrack and a diverse cast, Love, Simon is the kind of movie many people wish they had growing up.
Movies4Kids - 10/10 by Jo BerrySimon's fears, feelings, relationships and traumas are all real and feel true, and are portrayed in an entertaining, infectious and charming way.
Us Weekly - 10/10 by Mara ReinsteinHow refreshing to see a teen boy on a big screen that's not a sleepy-eyed, monosyllabic jerk just hoping to get laid.

TheFilmFile.com - 9/10 by Dustin PutmanThe beauty of "Love, Simon" is in its astute, slice-of-life observances about family, friendship, and that delicate moment in every LGBTQ person's life when he or she must gather the courage to begin living as their authentic self.
Schmoes Know - 9/10 by Mark EllisOne of my favorites of the year so far, without a doubt.
