Sure there are some cool movies to see this December with The Last Jedi, The Greatest Showman and others vying for year end attention. But truthfully my attention is focused on late winter and early spring. Over the course of three weeks, two of my favorite books hit the screen in major releases.
First up is Every Day by David Levithan. I’m a major fan of this author and this is a masterful work. A is a being who lives in a different body each day. Always someone of their age, and always someone nearby (so they don’t hop from a body in New York to body in L.A.). This is the only life A has known, but everything changes for them when they meet Rhiannon. From the trailer that’s just been released, this movie looks excellent. Every Day arrives in theaters February 23.
On March 16, the film adaption of Becky Albertalli’s Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda hits theaters. Directed by master of TV’s Arrow-verse Greg Berlanti and written by two scribes from NBC’s This Is Us this looks to be an extraordinary event. A big studio movie about a gay teen falling in love. Plus it’s based on one of the best books ever! I’m looking forward to Love, Simon more than words can say.
