LOVE, SIMON is a US comedy drama in which a closeted gay teenager falls for his anonymous email pen pal.

Sex

There are moderate verbal sex references throughout, including non-graphic references to masturbation, penis size and levels of sexual experience. A character refers to 'butt sex'. Another says his classmate looks like he "got gang-banged by a TJ Maxx".

Language

There is infrequent use of strong language ('f**k'). Milder terms include 'slutty', 'bitch', 'shit', 'dicks', 'assholes', 'balls', 'screw' and 'crap'. There is also infrequent use of homophobic terms including 'fag' and 'fruity'. Discriminatory language and behaviour are not endorsed by the film as a whole.

There is a very brief reference to solvent abuse when a teacher warns students not to 'huff' the paint cans they are using. Another scene contains a mention of marijuana.
