THE IN­NER TUR­MOIL OF AVOID­ING AN OUT­ING, US, 110 MIN While not a work that will change the world, Love,

Si­mon will in­deed mean the world to any view­ers liv­ing through the same tri­als, tribu­la­tions and un­nec­es­sar­ily soli­tary soul-search­ing as its teen pro­tag­o­nist. Si­mon (Nick Robin­son) is mov­ing into his fi­nal year of high school with the sup­port of a lov­ing fam­ily, the ca­ma­raderie of a close-knit posse of friends, and the con­stant worry of liv­ing with what he calls “one huge-ass se­cret”. Not a per­son in his life is aware that Si­mon is gay. Com­ing out is some­thing Si­mon be­lieves might be eas­ier to deal with once he leaves his home town to at­tend col­lege in another state. But, be­fore the year is through, Si­mon will have to con­front the pos­si­bil­ity that any choice re­gard­ing the tim­ing of his own out­ing may no longer be in his hands.
