It’s Tuesday, again blu-ray buddies. This week’s pick is a movie I’ve been really looking forward to seeing, Love, Simon.
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. – 20th Century Fox
Greg Berlanti has been killing it on the CW for years with all his Arrowverse shows, so with him directing Love, Simon, I was totally on board. Love, Simon looks like a modern twist on the Breakfast Club or another John Hughes movie, and who doesn’t love those, I know I do. Love, Simon seems like a sweet, charming, heartfelt comedy, that I am certainly looking forward to watching.
Included with the Blu-ray:
- Digital HD
- Deleted Scenes
- The Adaptation – Learn how the touching book Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli was adapted into Love, Simon
