Movie Monday: Love, Simon

Movie Monday is a feature here on my blog, in which I’m rambling about movies I’ve watched lately.

Last week I watched Love, Simon. It is an adaptation of a well-known ya contemporary book Simon vs. Homo Sapiens Agenda.


Love, Simon

I think by now everyone and their mothers have already heard about one of the most amazing ya contemporary books that came out few years ago: Simon vs. Homo Sapiens Agenda.
The hype around that book was real, and it was justified, because the novel is astonishing.

However, we are not here to talk about the book, we are here to talk about the movie (tbh, I planned to do book to movie comparison but as I was watching, I realized just how much of the book I actually forgot, so it wasn’t possible).

The movie was astounding! It was everything I wanted and more.
After a very, very long time, I feel like I watched a movie that can be compared to my favorite movie of all time: The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

When I compare it, I think about the feelings I had while watching (Oh, the feels!!!) and the atmosphere through the movie, but the stories are completely different. One thing that they definitely have in common is that both movies have important messages. Different, but very important.

I feel like Love, Simon is the movie everyone would enjoy. I can not imagine how someone would not like it. My friends who watched it all enjoyed it, some even recommended it to me because they didn’t know there was a book and that I have already read it.

I watched it with my fiance and tbh I was little afraid how he’d react because he doesn’t like high school movies, but he loved it. He told me it was the best movie we’ve seen in a while and that it will probably become evergreen. I hope he’s right!

If you still haven’t watch Love, Simon, what are you waiting for??
It’s streaming on Netflix and it is also available on DVDs in some countries.

  1. I haven’t actually gotten around to the book yet (yeah, yeah, *gasps* but, there’s only one of me, and there’s a lotta books!) but the film def. made my little Queer heart happy! 🙂

    1. Don’t worry, you still have time to read it! This way at least you enjoyed the movie without secretly comparing it to the book while watching.
      Unpopular opinion: I like the movie better (but don’t get me wrong, the book is also great).
