Based on the book Si­mon Vs The Homo Sapi­ens Agenda, this film fol­lows the life of a clos­et­ted gay high school stu­dent. Si­mon’s life is com­pli­cated by hav­ing to bal­ance friends, fam­ily, his email pen pal Blue, and the boy threat­en­ing to re­veal his sex­u­al­ity to the en­tire school. Si­mon’s emails to his se­cret pen pal / love in­ter­est fall into the wrong hands and his se­cret is at risk of be­ing re­vealed. Forced to find a way to step out of his com­fort zone be­fore he’s pushed out, Si­mon tries to face this chal­lenge with­out com­pro­mis­ing him­self, alien­at­ing his friends or ru­in­ing his chances with his on­line crush. Star­ring Jen­nifer Gar­ner, Josh Duhamel and Thir­teen Rea­sons Why star Kather­ine Lang­ford, the film has been touted as an in­cred­i­bly funny and poignant com­ing out story.
