Story: Comedy drama directed by Greg Berlanti which centers on 17-year-old Simon Spier (Nick Robinson), a high school student who hasn’t told his family or friends that he’s gay, and he doesn’t know the identity of the anonymous classmate that he’s fallen for online. When Simon Spier’s emails to his secret pen pal, Blue, fall into the wrong hands, he is forced to play wingman to his blackmailer.
Best Quotes from Trailer:
Leah Burke: Do you ever feel weird?
Simon Spier: Weird?
Leah Burke: Sometimes I feel like I’m always on the outside, there’s this invisible line that I have to cross to really be a part of everything and I just can’t ever cross it.
Simon Spier: Me too.
[writing an email to his pen pal]
Simon Spier: [voice over] My name’s Simon and I’m just like you, except I have one huge-ass secret. Nobody knows I’m gay. Sometimes I feel like I’m stuck on a ferris wheel. One minute I’m on top of the world, then the next I’m at rock-bottom. I’ve been thinking about why I haven’t come out yet. Maybe part of me wants to hold onto who’ve I’ve always been, just a little longer. No matter what who you are to the world is pretty terrifying because what if the world doesn’t like you? P.S. It doesn’t seem fair that only gay people have to come out. Why is straight the default?
[we see different scenarios of Simon’s friends coming out as straight to their parents]
Leah Burke: I have something to tell you. I’m straight.
Nick Eisner: I like girls.
Mr. Eisner: Are you trying to kill me?
Abby Suso: I like men. I’m heterosexual.
[Abby’s mom suddenly bursts into tears]
Abby’s Mom: Oh, God! Heavenly Jesus!
[to a boy he’s got a crush on, who’s using a leaf blower whilst working]
Simon Spier: Hey! I like your, your boots!
[the boy indicates he can’t hear Simon]
Simon Spier: I said I like your boots!
[the boy turns back to his work and ignores him]
Simon Spier: Bye!
[feeling embarrassed, Simon gets into his car and slams his head on his steerign wheel]
