Last night, Unlimited members were treated to our seventh Secret Screening. The movie in question turned out to be inspirational drama Love, Simon, starring Jurassic World's Nick Robinson. Based on Becky Albertalli's novel Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda, it's the sensitive story of a young teen struggling to come out as gay to his friends and family.
The movie has already generated a warm response from American critics, and it stands at an impressive 88% on Rotten Tomatoes. Similarly, our Unlimited audience went head over heels for the movie. We've rounded up some select responses, beginning with this from regular tweeter Phil Roberts.

Willdoesmovies compliments the acting ensemble, that also includes Elektra's Jennifer Garner and Transformers actor Josh Duhamel.
Absolutely brilliant. There was so much that was perfect about the movie. The story was amazing, I actually felt something for the characters, and the cast were great as well. 9.5/10— willdoesmovies (@bigflyingsheep) March 14, 2018
And Ste Ent says the movie spoke directly to him.
This was just the perfect choice and the one I was hoping it would be and it was not a let down. First major film about a gay central character. As a gay man, this is groundbreaking. It was funny, heartbreaking and adorable.— Ste Ent (@stebee24) March 13, 2018
