Sometimes we can’t help but ruminate on our first loves. Everyone deserves a great first love story, and those special people who gave us our first set of butterflies in the stomach do shape who we are as adults.
When you’re falling in love during your formative teenage years, it’s pretty hard to deny that you might have adopted their kissing style (or learned how to together), that you really love their favourite band even now because you listened to them on shared headphones too much as a couple, or that there are these weird tics of speech you think are yours, but that you actually adopted from them in the long, long ago.
You’ll probably be pretty into the soon-to-be-released Love, Simon if you find yourself basking in the warm glow of nostalgia on the reg, or – if you are the unicorn who looks only to the future – you just love a warm and uplifting coming-of-age flick.
Excuse me, I just need to check what my first boyfriend is up to on Facebook. After you’re finished with your own cheeky fb-stalk, how’s about you give the Love, Simon trailer a gander:
Someone pass us a tissue, I think we’ve caught feels. (Also, he cut his hair and it actually looks pretty nice. Good for him).
The film, from the producer of hit shows Riverdale and Supergirl, as well as phenom movie The Fault in Our Stars, follows 17-year-old high school student Simon Spier, played by hot up-‘n-comer Jurassic World‘s Nick Robinson, as he falls for an anonymous schoolmate he meets online, all while he tries to figure out how to come out to his friends and family.
Our very own Katherine Langford of 13 Reasons Why, queen of her own meme Jennifer Garner and the hunky-in-a-daddy-way Josh Duhamel also star in this funny and warm story of finding yrself and the one you love.
Thanks to our pals at 20th Century Fox, you could be lucky enough to be among the first in Oz to see Love, Simon. We’ve got tix to preview screenings in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide AND Perth (don’t think we forgot ya), before the film opens Australia-wide on March 29. It’s certainly gonna be a spesh film you wont be able to help but be stew over for a little while (sorry, not sorry).
