The Beauty of Love, Simon
I was incredibly nervous (and incredibly excited) for Love, Simon. It’s the first wide studio release with a gay protagonist and a gay love story. It’s directed and written by Greg Berlanti, the producer of Riverdale and Supergirl on The CW. There was so much room for error, but along with one of my favorite theatrical experiences (it’s always adorable to see people squeal with excitement), I was so pleasantly surprised with Love, Simon. Coming out of the movie, I felt like I was on cloud nine, and after having some time between seeing the film and writing this review, my first reaction is still the same. Love, Simon is a complex, heartwarming, and beautiful film.
