You’ve likely been reading about the upcoming film Love, Simon all over social media. If you want to see it before its official March 16 release, Twentieth Century Fox is giving you a chance. Love, Simon will play in theaters for one night only on Saturday, March 10. If you want to check out an early screening, you can pick up tickets at LoveSimonTickets.com.
This Greg Berlanti film follows Simon Spier (Nick Robinson), a teenage boy who has to come out to his friends and family while also trying to uncover the identity of his anonymous crush. The movie has already garnered near universal critical and social acclaim.
Chris Aronson, President of Domestic Distribution at 20th Century Fox said: “We are delighted by the overwhelming response so far to Love, Simon. We believe it is a very special movie and we want to give audiences a chance to discover that for themselves, which is why we are offering a special sneak preview on Saturday.”
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 (Everwood, The Flash, Riverdale), written by Isaac Aptaker & Elizabeth Berger (This is Us), and based on Becky Albertalli’s acclaimed novel, Fox 2000’s Love, Simon is a funny and heartfelt coming-of-age story about the thrilling ride of finding yourself and falling in love.
