Love, Simon (screening)

Everyone deserves a great love story, but for 17-year-old Simon Spier, it's a little more complicated. He hasn't told his family or friends that he's gay, and he doesn't know the identity of the anonymous classmate that he's fallen for online. Resolving both issues proves hilarious, terrifying and life-changing. RATED PG 13. Runtime is 1 hour 50 minutes.

Part of the Reel Queer Intergenerational LGBTQ+ Movie Series.
