Love, Simon ★★★½

I kind of think the blackmail plot maybe detracts a little from the overall story arc of the film a bit (all of the best scenes in the movie are the ones... not about that) but not tremendously so.

That's really all I got. This is a lovely film, and it wasn't made for me, and that's fine, because it makes other people happy and brave, and that's good, and to those people I hope my nitpicking about the story construction doesn't detract from your experience.

(wait, Greg Berlanti directed this? how did he find the time? he has like four billion DC Comics teevee shows to make)
