Wondering why times are missing?

Love, Simon

A teenager (Nick Robinson from Jurassic World) keeps the fact that he's gay a secret from his family and his friends—at least until a classmate threatens to "out" him. This is the first studio-made, teen-targeted romantic comedy with a gay protagonist, and that makes it groundbreaking on many levels. But it's hard to tell if this film's cliché, Nickelodeon Channel approach to the subject matter (courtesy of big-time TV producer Greg Berlanti) is an example of long overdue mainstream acceptance or proof of Hollywood's generic attitude toward teen movies. 109 minutes PG-13.
