Lovable, Well-rounded Characters
One of the striking characteristics of Love, Simon is that the four bestfriends, Simon (Nick Robinson), Leah (Katherine Langford), Abby (Alexandra Shipp) and Nick (Jorge Lendeborg Jr.) all have distinct personalities, as well as individual struggles and goals that by the time the movie ends, it feels like we’ve known these characters all our lives. An array of supporting characters are also memorable, from Simon’s family to the blackmailing douche who will never be invited to another party. And yes, we want Simon’s theater arts teacher to be our teacher!

There’s the rush of excitement, the thrill of the chase, the giggling feeling of first love, the numerous pains borne out of fear and intolerance, and yes, empathy. (We’re not going to spoil anything for you, sorry!)
