The first trailer for next March’s gay teen dramedy Love, Simon has been released and proves that coming out can still be a terrifying ordeal.
Based on Becky Albertalli’s book Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda, the film tells the story of 17-year-old Simon Spier (Nick Robinson) who is desperate to learn the identity of the anonymous classmate he’s developed a romance with online.
Meanwhile, the teen has to fight to keep his sexuality hidden from his parents, played by Jennifer Garner and Josh Duhamel, and his closest friends, including 13 Reasons Why star Katherine Langford and X-Men: Apocalypse’s Alexandra Shipp.
The film, which has been described as “a John Hughes-style coming-of-age, coming-out story” is directed by out producer Greg Berlanti (Riverdale, The Flash).
Love, Simon hits theaters on March 16, 2018, and you can check out the first trailer below.
