Flick in a Limerick

He falls in love online but does not want to play foolFor his family and friends
He can no longer pretend

“Great choice on the cargos by the way Looks like you got gang banged by a TJ Max”
“Have you ever been so into someone that it almost kills you”
“Didn’t your mother ever tell you not to grab your micro penis in public. Can we get some humus for that baby carrot.”
“Did you break up with me because I look like a guy?
No I broke up with you because you don’t look like a guy”
“Sometimes I feel my life is like a Ferris wheel. Some days I am on top of the world and other days I feel like I’m at rock bottom.”

The Big Finish
As much as society has evolved a film of this caliber seems long over due. The young cast is exceptional performing wise beyond their years. This is one of those ensembles 10 years from now we may look back and marvel at how much superstar talent we didn’t know we were witnessing at one time. Nick Robinson shines in the marquee role. The presence of Jennifer Garner provides honest mature leadership. Katherine Langford is phenomenal and clearly shows off why she is one of the most popular young actresses working today. Stealing the movie is Clark Moore who brings great laughter to balance out the serious tone. I enjoyed the diversity in relationships amongst the group of friends and respected how it is not overly emphasized to viewers. The theme of Simon’ s dad played by Josh Duhamel kind of secretly knowing his son is gay but is always stressing how manly he is cleverly displayed an honest sense of self-denial which is paid off masterfully. Secrets are very difficult to keep safe however the longer you keep them the more it can rip us apart internally and has the potential to hurt those you love. Equally courageous and comedic this coming out coming of age story is very easy to admire for its discovery.
