It exceeded every single one of my already HIGH expectations, but that is no surprise right?
I cried seven times in the movie theatre, if that doesn’t say something about how much you should see this movie, I don’t know what will.
Anyways, I’ve been wanting to see this movie ever since I started reading Simon V. The Homosapiens Agenda, and I knew how much of an impactful movie this was going to be. Something you may not know about me s that when i grow up, I would like to be in the film industry and write movies. But I want to write movies that make an impact. And Love, Simon is the perfect example of those types of movies. The film industry needs a wakeup call in what they precedent as ‘normal’ or ‘Oscar-worthy’
Diversity in both books and movies is something that I feel so strongly about. Because I read and watch almost everything diverse but it is just not enough. I started writing my book because I read Carry On and then I stopped writing it because I was growing busy. Then I decided to read more like Ramona Blue or Simon or More Happy Than Not and after reading those amazing wonderful novels, my need to write just grew. And it is safe to say, that after watching Love, Simon, I needed to keep writing. Because there is a reason why I write.
I write because I see how much these books impact the lives of people. Even in the smallest way possible. And if I can do something for this world it is to make one child, teen, or adult, happy because of my writing.
Now I could go on and on about this topic, but this post is a shrine to Love, Simon. These actors embraced these characters so much that I know that they are the characters. The plot is so beautiful and heart-hitting that even the pickiest of book-to-movie adaptation critics will see how distinguished this movie. Yes, the movie and the plot of the movie isn’t exactly like the book. But I don’t care. I really don’t. And as someone who considers to be a huge book-to-movie critic, this is a huge achievement on the part of the movie.
I don’t know what else to say other than the adjectives I would use to describe this movie. So that’s what I’ll do.
