    Love, Simon

    ★★★★★

    One of the taglines for Love, Simon is “Everyone Deserves a Love Story”. That line could not be more relevant now. Is the film only for the LGBTQ community? I know people will say “absolutely! This is for us!” Although I do believe the film is aimed at the community, it is very accessible to all audiences and I believe anyone can identify with the film’s main character, even if it is just in shades.
