A young coming-of-age tale about a teenage boy, Simon Spier, goes through a different kind of Romeo and Juliet story. Simon has a love connection with a boy, Blue, by email, but the only problem is that Simon has no idea who he's talking to. Simon must discover who that boy is--who Blue is. Along the way, he tries to find himself as well.Written by

At the end of the closing credits, on the right side of the screen, it reads "#gtfo". This is an internet initialism for "get the fuck out." It is, in effect, telling audience members to leave the theater. See more »
The version of the film on Blu-ray sold at Target stores includes a bonus miniature replica of Simon's notebook, which features the full e-mails Simon and Blue send to one another in the film. See more »
I finally watched this and it was perfect, this is beautiful, and very necessary!
My favorite scene was by far Jennifer Garner's speech, that if you watched the movie, you probably know what i'm talking about.
There's probably just a few little things I didn't like, especially some of the classic topics and stereotypes that this genre of film usually has, but still, it's amazing.
We need more films like this. Fun, heartwarming, and just fantastic all around!!
Also, a reminder if this wasn't enough: Be yourself. Be happy. You deserve it.
