Whether Love, Simon is based on a real life story or it was literally just pure fiction, it was truly a magical human interest story. It may be the content of the story, the actors playing the characters, or the narration of it all, Love, Simon is one of the best movies you could watch in theaters or find on Netflix. I did not cry as much as the girlfriend did, but there were a few moments that could bring you to tears. There are so many movements under way across the globe and one of the biggest ones involved the the gay community. Love, Simon is definitely one of those powerful movies that provides us with an amazing message. The funny thing is the movie is all about coming out, but not about coming out at the same time. It never forces anything upon you and allows for things to unfold naturally. Some may not agree with these actions, when in reality this is how cruel the world can be. The story does get a sugar of sorts, because this is supposed to be a heart warming tale, and not showcase the darkest side of things. Overall, Love, Simon is a must watch because it showcases how strong the human spirit can be.  8/10
