Love, Simon

moderate sex references, infrequent strong language

Everyone deserves a great love story. But for seventeen-year old Simon Spier it’s a little more complicated: he’s yet to tell his family or friends he’s gay and he doesn’t actually know the identity of the anonymous classmate he’s fallen for online. Resolving both issues proves hilarious, terrifying and life-changing. Directed by Greg Berlanti (Dawson’s Creek, Brothers & Sisters), written by Isaac Aptaker & Elizabeth Berger (This is Us), and based on Becky Albertalli’s acclaimed novel, LOVE, SIMON is a funny and heartfelt coming-of-age story about the thrilling ride of finding yourself and falling in love.

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.
