    This is one of the only movies that I have been excited to see since the end of the Harry Potter film franchise (6 years ago!)
    This is about a closeted gay teen named Simon (Nick Robinson ), who is coming to terms with his sexuality and ends up emailing a fellow pupil at his school in the same situation. He eventually comes out. I have almost finished the book in preparation. I really want to see this movie, although I don't know how to convince my parents. I'll try and sneak out some how. It looks really good and everyone who has seen the preview showings have rated it highly.

    It's genuinely very exciting! It is the movie that I need to see at this point of my coming out story. Anyone planning to see it?

    Glad that they got Nick Robinson for the main role as well. He is cute.

    They don't know that I am gay and would question why I want to see it given the theme.
    Not sure what to do, but will try and see it somehow. I am really excited!

    I haven't been so excited for a movie in years. It is much better than the usual action/adventure movie that I am dragged to see. 20th Century Fox seem to have done a great job and it is a great storyline.

    I wish that it was being released next month, rather than April. Then, I would be able to see it on the last day before the Easter holidays. Instead, I will need to sneak out at some point.

    I have to mention though - if someone at school found out, would they assume I was gay?

    And why do you need your parents permission? Ofc if that’s how it is in your family, just ask! They won’t think anything of it

    Not your type of movie?

    I would imagine that most of the people seeing it will be gay guys and probably some lesbians as well. Maybe a few straight girls with their gay best friends as well. Definitely not much straight guys.

    It would make them curious though. I'm just not ready to come out, and want to avoid any mention of LGBT around them.

    A lot of movies seem to lack plot twists these days, IMO.
    I find action/adventure type movies to be really boring. At least this is something quite close to my heart, not to mention a cute actor playing the main character.

    They made a good choice with him! Really easy on the eye, and if the trailer is anything to go by, he sure looks great in this movie. A lot of girls loved him after Jurassic World and other movies, but this will likely boost his gay fanbase.

    I'm not really sure what you are asking, but if you are wondering about the movie: Nick Robinson plays a gay teen named Simon who comes to terms with his sexuality and then starts e-mailing an anonymous gay guy at his school, and he eventually comes out. It sounds right up my alley.

    Definitely, I remember reading the book about a year ago and only hearing about the moving a couple months ago. Can't wait to see it when it comes out.

    I bought the book nearly 6 weeks ago whilst on prelim leave. Read most of it, but haven't read much for a while due to being in school full time and trying to hide it from family.
    The book is great though!

    Fair enough, if you ever finish the book there are a couple others you should read if you find a way, names Openly Straight and its sequel Honestly Ben.
