Time to Dish
Love, SImon is a coming of age story of Simon, played by Nick Robinson, who has the most supportive structure around him; a psychiatrist mum who is as open-minded as they come, an emotionally connected father who, get this, is in touch with his feelings aaaaaaaaaand…he cries (Do they even make them that way anymore? *sigh*).
He also has the most loving sister and bombtastic friends ever. The only problem is that Simon has a HUGE ASS SECRET. He’s gay. (No pun intended…haha…okay maybe just a little pun but those were his words, not mine…hehe)
We follow his awkward, hilarious, and rather messy coming out story which actually leads him to…SHHHHHH…DON’T RUIN IT FOR THEM YOU DOUCHEBAG! Fine…I’m sure they’ve already watched it anyway. But if you haven’t, be sure to check it out. You don’t have to be gay to connect with the film’s message of friendship, truth, and especially love and support from your family members when coming to terms with hard realities in your life.
Truth is that just like Simon, we all have our secrets that we’d rather stayed in the closet forever. What we gotta realize though is that most often than not, putting it out there is so much more freeing than living every day trying to cover it up. Whatever the deal…don’t walk it alone. You have loved ones around…make use of them coz trust me, they love you and support you more than you could ever know if you just let them in. (Damn…got hella sentimental there *brushes tear away* hehe)
Plus that ending though, damn… it was everything.
Watch it…stay woke.
