Everyone deserves a great love story, and there’s no exception for 17-year-old Simon. Based on the novel ‘Simon and the Homo Sapian Agenda’, Love, Simon is a heartfelt coming-of-age story about a teenage boy navigating family, friendships and high school, while concealing his sexuality. When a classmate threatens to reveal his secret, Simon must face the adventure of self-discovery and finding comfort in one's own identity.
This revered rom-com has been likened to that of beloved John Hughes teen flicks, with the added benefit of being the first major Hollywood studio focus on a gay teenage romance. Starring Nick Robinson and Jennifer Garner, Love, Simon will have you leaving the cinema inspired with an extra dose of courage to boot.
This screening is in partnership with Croydon Pride.
