Coming out gets extra awkward with Dad’s Grindr offer in new “Love, Simon” clip

By Dan Tracer · Tuesday, March 6, 2018

The theatrical release of Love, Simon is less than two weeks away, and a new clip is making the rounds that perfectly exemplifies why we’ll be first in line to buy tickets. It’s honest and raw and yeah, there’s a solid Grindr joke thrown in for good measure. It’s like they really know us.

Based on Becky Albertalli’s novel Simon vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda, the movie is being billed as a truly mainstream coming-of-age coming out story.

With Greg Berlanti directing (Dawson’s Creek, Brothers & Sisters, Green Lantern, Everwood, Political Animals, Arrow, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow), it stars Nick Robinson (Jurassic World) and co-stars Josh Duhamel, Jennifer Garner, Miles Heizer, Tony Hale, and Katherine Langford.

Watch below:

Here’s another clip released this week that gives some context:

Love, Simon arrives at theaters on March 16.
