PG-13 | | Comedy, Drama, Romance
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.
Just as the film went into production, Nick Robinson's younger brother came out as gay.
Suraj, stop pretending that trumpet is your penis. It is a rental.
"Blue"'s e-mail address changes throughout the film. In some scenes, it's "Blugreen118" and in others, "Bluegreen118".
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 home video release features two deleted scenes: In the first, Abby talks to Simon about her interest in Nick, but Simon concocts a story about Nick having cheated on his previous girlfriend. In the second, Nick takes Simon to a gay bar to help him come to terms with his identity where the two are eventually kicked out for being underage. When Simon returns home he's confronted by his parents for disappearing for so long.
