Hi! Has anyone seen/is going to see Love, Simon? I read that stupid article that was all over Twitter about it not being 'needed' and I was wondering how faithful it was to the book?
I don't know the answer, I'm afraid, but I did read the same article, (if it was the one in TIME?) and thought it was really missing the point. Until we stop asking if something is 'needed' so people don't feel marginalised, it is *so clearly* needed! When movies are just made like that without the questions or discussions, then we've made some actual progress, right!? Was glad to see there were plenty of people calling out it's stupidity, though. That's a start.
Apparently the book isn’t as good as people make it out to be,but I am defo gonna try read it to see for myself
I don't think it's not a necessary movie, it's nice to have movies on the topic. However, a book that better explains the situation would've been nice. I think I will try to see the movie (if it's still in theatre? I'm so bad with getting to films) simply to see of it's better than the book - which in my opinion was a let down, so my expectations aren't exactly high. If you've seen it already how was it?
I loved the film but haven't actually read the book yet. My friend, however, has and says she really liked it and wants to watch the film :)
I am yet to read the book but I have seen the movie.
Firstly, it’s a movie, yes it have a touchy subjunctive but really, you never here people giving out over a movie that has a guy searching for the girl.
Its so typical of the media, yes it was a bit of a statement but they are missing the entire point of the plot.
