20th Century Fox has released the first trailer for next March’s heartbreaking/heartwarming gay teen dramedy Love, Simon. The film, based on Becky Albertalli’s book Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, follows a gay high schooler (Nick Robinson) who develops an email romance with a fellow closeted student.
Everyone deserves a great love story. But for seventeen-year old Simon Spier it’s a little more complicated: he’s yet to tell his family or friends he’s gay and he doesn’t actually know the identity of the anonymous classmate he’s fallen for online. Resolving both issues proves hilarious, terrifying and life-changing. Directed by Greg Berlanti (Dawson’s Creek, Brothers & Sisters), written by Isaac Aptaker & Elizabeth Berger (This is Us), and based on Becky Albertalli’s acclaimed novel, LOVE, SIMON is a funny and heartfelt coming-of-age story about the thrilling ride of finding yourself and falling in love.
The John Hughes-esque film is directed by TV mega-producer Greg Berlanti (Riverdale, The Flash) and opens March 15, 2018. Watch the new footage below.
