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 (Dawson’s Creek, Brothers & Sisters), written by Isaac Aptaker & Elizabeth Berger (This is Us), and based on Becky Albertalli’s acclaimed novel, LOVE, SIMON is a funny and heartfelt coming-of-age story about the thrilling ride of finding yourself and falling in love.

Movie Review by Kristin: HELLO, MY NAME IS DORIS | #hellomynameisdoris

What’s up, movie lovers?? I was able to watch another movie this week that I thought was worth reviewing, so here I am!

IMG_2147I’d heard about HELLO, MY NAME IS DORIS back in 2015 when it was released, but never got around to watching it. For some reason, I felt really good after finally watching it.

The film premiered at South by Southwest on March 14, 2015 and also screened at the Montclair Film Festival on May 1, 2015. Wanted to bring that up since my family is from Montclair, NJ and I thought that was pretty cool.

SYNOPSIS: When Doris Miller (Sally Field) meets John Fremont (Max Greenfield), her company’s hip new art director, sparks fly–at least for Doris. In the cluttered house she shared with her late mother, Doris mines the Internet for information on her one-and-only, guided by the 13-year-old granddaughter of her best pal Roz. When Doris begins showing up at John’s regular haunts, she wins over his Williamsburg friends. Her new life brings Doris a thrilling perspective, but also creates a rift between her and her longtime friends and family, who believe she’s making a fool of herself over a guy half her age. Eager for all the experiences she has missed out on, Doris throws caution to the wind and follows her heart for the very first time.

Now, I did find myself thinking that Doris was a crazy little lady, but she grew on me. The underlying issue was definitely that she missed out on certain experiences because she was forced into the caretaker role for her mother while her brother pursued his dreams. That’s something that I can kind of relate to. The moral of the story is that it’s never too late! Doris quickly became a Grade A stalker when it came to John, but what she craved was that youthful energy, that friendship, the fact that he didn’t look at her like a crazy cat lady who lived her life as a hoarder. He actually liked her quirkiness–and MAN, was she quirky! Sally Field and Max Greenfield had excellent on-screen chemistry throughout, but that’s no surprise. Side Note: If you haven’t seen Greenfield as Schmidt on ‘New Girl,’ do yourself a favor and watch that!

This was a cute little indie film that exemplifies the struggles we sometimes face in order to find ourselves. It made me laugh and it definitely made me sympathize with the characters. Doris was lost, but she was able to find herself through these experiences and I think that’s more important than her moments of cyber-stalking John on Facebook. But, note to the ladies (& dudes) out there . . . don’t be a cyber-stalker. Be yourself–quirkiness and all!
