At first it looks little different from any other teen drama, but Fox's "Love, Simon" is as significant a milestone for LGBT inclusion as "Black Panther" was for racial diversity.Directed by Greg Berlanti ("The Flash," "Supergirl") while he was on break from his various TV jobs last January, "Love, Simon" is based on Becky Albertalli's novel "Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda".Robinson ("Jurassic World," "Everything, Everything") plays Simon Spier, a high school senior in a suburb of Atlanta, Georgia, who hasn't told his family or friends he's gay."Love, Simon" figures among a number of coming-of-age gay movies released in recent months, including the Oscar-winning "Call Me By Your Name" and "The Miseducation of Cameron Post," which scooped top prize at the Sundance Film Festival."Love, Simon" has a 91 percent approval rating, according to 23 reviews collated by entertainment website Rotten Tomatoes, and is tracking to make $18 million over its debut weekend when it opens Friday.Josh Duhamel and Jennifer Garner play Simon's loving parents, while his group of friends includes Katherine Langford, the star of buzzy Netflix drama "13 Reasons Why".
