The first official trailer has been released for the John Hughes-esque high school film “Love, Simon.”

“Love, Simon” follows 17-year-old Simon Spier (Nick Robinson) as he struggles with coming out to his friends and family. In the middle of it all, Simon starts to fall for an anonymous classmate he meets online.

Greg Berlanti directs the film based on the book by Becky Albertalli. It also stars Katherine Langford, Alexandra Shipp, Jorge Lendeborg, Miles Heizer, Keiynan Lonsdale, Logan Miller, Jennifer Garner, Josh Duhamel and Tony Hale.

The trailer’s debut, which has already received more than a million views, sent the internet into a frenzy as Simon is the first gay main character in a mainstream teen drama.
