Simon Spier keeps a huge secret from his family, his friends and all of his classmates: he's gay. When that secret is threatened, Simon must face everyone and come to terms with his identity.
The production code for the film was "Blue," which is the pseudonym of the person Simon E-mails.
Tell me about this guy you love.
Simon: You sure?
Leah: Yeah. It'll help me kill off hetero Simon in my mind.
Simon: You don't have to kill him off.
Leah: He's dead, Si. Hacking him up with a mental machete as we speak.
Simon: All right, fair enough.
When Garrett originally announces the Halloween party at Bram's, he tells people that it's on Friday night. However, when Simon later invites Martin to the same party, he tells him it's on Saturday.
At the end of the closing credits, on the right side of the screen, it reads "#gtfo". This is an internet initialism for "get the fuck out." It is, in effect, telling audience members to leave the theater.
The version of the film on Blu-ray sold at Target stores includes a bonus miniature replica of Simon's notebook, which features the full e-mails Simon and Blue send to one another in the film.
