I don't very close to the gay themes, but this film is all decided to look, bought a positive review and high rating. The film turned out, and that's a fact.

All of his shortcomings have been repeatedly pointed out in other reviews. Yes, the plot is fairly predictable, Yes, the characters do not original characters typical of modern American cinema: "clown", "athlete", "loser" and etc. Secondary lines and characters no essence, the focus is on one specific topic and history. All this so. The question is how is filed.

Enjoyed it with great music and visuals, each frame in place.

Filed without excessive misery, sobbing in the pillow, dull revelations and the same type of fight. No, it all the Board.

The guy is confused, Yes, he probably scared, but not its essence and rather, the fact that will his life after recognizing himself. But he shrugs his shoulders and goes further, because it is the life that is who she is. "I same I" — says Simon, and it's probably the best tagline to this film.

Great movie.

Simon (Nickname George. Robinson) — cute a graduate senior, have whose wonderful parents are baking him in the morning the pancakes and kinky friends, which he every morning drinks ice latte. The only and most important skeleton in his closet is that he was gay, Oh no one idea. Not in forces more to be silent Simon pours out his soul in online correspondence with a stranger of the school soon exposed to the public and Simon begins to blackmail.

Despite the high ratings and beautiful love letter written by Xavier Dolan in this film, I he is not like several reasons:

First, it is solid plates ranging from the popular kids, the losers of the school and characters friends Simon, ending monologues of Simon, his parents just a disgusting character — the Director of the school. Cliche cliche cliche! Yes, I have not read the original and longer in puberty, but not bothers me to evaluate such coming-of-age films like "Lady bird" and"Mysterious skin" (I'm a little bent, but at Araki hero is also gay!).

Second, formulaic acting. They all super nice guys, but very sickly and unnatural because the performance in features u front of the actor showing the same expression most of the movie.

The pros certainly are. This first Studio film, the protagonist of which was a teenager-gay. This big step industry it's wonderful. Another commendable dignity — it is lightweight, unobtrusive and not preaching manner of narration. No bad good guys, no tyrants-parents, no bad childhood and wooden toys. Simon — a normal happy boy, who got a lot of privileges, and because to come out to your parents is not easy.

The film is not preachy and without strong characters and plot, the denouement is also simple and lyrical. Of course you can watch and need, but I expected more, therefore 6/10.

With love, Simon on extremely clean movie. This film is not zaparivat on the subject of tolerance and intolerance, not exploits the theme of tolerance to sexual minorities, he just tells a beautiful and touching story. About the normal teenagers, carrying a certain idea.

About the film found out quite by accident once read schedule of Premier in IMDb came across like a simple poster for teen movies. Read the synopsis — this creation have for a brief description was touching and sweet. Very sorry that in our country the picture has a very low rent (and then our artists surprised with the great demand for a pirated copy).

Well, love Simon — story of student at the name of Simon, from it also has a secret. A secret he no one opened. And here he can the Internet will get acquainted with kind of Blue. They overwritten, everything is going well, but here to the misfortune of the Simon school, "the clown," Martin finds out the secret the main character and blackmail tries through Simon's relationship with his girlfriend — school beauty Abby.

What is the first thing eyes — this, of course, the purity of the frame. All very simple, cute, warm, the screen is dominated by the symmetry, and the picture simply does not can not to please the eye.

In the film good revealed minor characters, Simon is not trying to themselves, and the film wisely uses timing, paying attention, and the problems of relations between friends, and intolerance, and of course love line. But I want to say about the friends of the protagonist. Nick, Leah and Abby. This simple, classic friends many of such is, or certainly was (especially in childhood). Friend-dude (Nick) — cool guy, can trust the main character of your secrets, to discuss with him girls, sporting all of themselves so well and, of course, good sense of humor. Oh Yes, he likes to tell about your dreams! Lea — a real friend-girl for many guys. With I didn't understand her motivation on the conflict and quarreling. But I was very touched by her dialogue with Simon approximately in the middle of the movie. Think of the feelings experienced that character is familiar to many. Abby — the real girl-boy, WITHOUT a CLICHÉ that love to use filmmakers, creating a similar image. I were very moved by Simon's friends, they reminded me of my friends in the film, they are the relationship is very sincere, that even forget that it's a movie. It is making a movie of the life... with love. The Director and the actors definitely did a great job to achieve this effect.

What to the parents of the main character, there is also do not so simple. I liked the father (Josh Duhamel), he is not a classic folder-friend, where he was bursting to tears, I felt that the bond between father and son. And possibly, therefore, the film manages to maintain the perfect middle ground between the snotty "lesbijkami" and a touching, romantic, very funny Comedy about friendship... It's great, the creators have taken all that could perfectly mixed and received the output love, Simon — funny romantic and very touching film. All elements correctly spread out through the timing is very well in tune and interact. It is the movie is not afraid to speak to audience, it quietly mentions game of thrones, the beloved main character loves OREO cookies with orange filling, anonymous public servers in the Internet, Daniel Radcliffe coming in the nightmares to Simon all this and a lot of other references to mass pop culture will see in this film.

Well, I say the acting is no need. One of the stars from the sky is not enough, play's just fine. Although given that the final version was not staged ones, in which the actors played best friends were convinced that the shooting stopped, he was at this situation to talk about the game. Of course, the Director is good, just went to this unusual move.

I want to praise Josh Duhamel, from it was warm and soft father, whom often shot on a tear.

Was very amused by the banter makers over "proud gays" do a movie on extremely funny, not expected, thought — will cry the whole but not to laugh is good, that was wrong. Movie only on first glance seems predictable. I the whole movie had the same ideas about the main twist and the denouement of the picture. But I was wrong. Yes agree that most of the action in the film anticipate, but still I think we saw that movie, not for super complicated plot, but rather, because of the history and the emotions that we will call this story, even if it and predictable.

I am glad that had this movie. In recent screen more actively addresses issues of homophobia, and a "large greedy the death of the Studio" try to push in my projects more ostentatious reverence in the side of various minorities, the most showing THEIR inferiority, thus recognizing "otherness". But it's wrong! The main moral of this movie, which, incidentally, is very skillfully and carefully, it is that we change to remain themselves, even after some events that clearly change our lives in the root. And important for Simon was not to convince others that it the same, understand admit it — still someone has always been. Here about movie.
