The coming-of-age movie adaptation of the best-selling YA novel gets a new trailer that will tug at your heartstrings!
Love, Simon is based on the best-selling debut novel by Becky Albertalli and follows seventeen-year-old Simon Spier. Everyone deserves a great love story, but for Simon, it’s a little more complicated. He’s yet to tell his family or friends he’s gay and he doesn’t actually know the identity of the anonymous classmate he’s fallen for online. Resolving both issues proves hilarious, terrifying and life-changing.
An inspiring line from the new trailer is spoken by Simon, and we’re sure many people can relate to the words he speaks:
I’m done living in a world where I don’t get to be who I am. I deserve a great love story, and I want someone to share it with.
