MOVIES Love Simon

The highly anticipated film 'Love, Simon' hit theaters on March 16, and audiences are already raving about the tear-jerking moments that make the movie a smashing success. As a gay coming-of-age piece, 'Love, Simon' follows the high school protagonist through his venture into finding himself and building up the courage to come out.

In an interview on ABC's 'Nightline,' lead actor Nick Robinson discussed one scene in particular that was especially touching. The moment was between Simon and his mother Emily, played by Jennifer Garner. After he came out to his whole family, his mother said, "You get to exhale now, Simon. You get to be more you than you've been in a very long time."

Robinson explained how this scene was crucial to the message of the film because it is the moment that every person hopes for—a moment of acceptance. "I started crying because those words are kind of universal. The message and the weight that those [words] carry, regardless of your orientation, or who you are...just hearing those words is really powerful," Robinson said.

'Love, Simon' is currently in theaters.
