Love, Victor 8/10
Love, Victor, the TV spinoff of the highly acclaimed coming-of-age film Love, Simon debuted earlier this week on Hulu and it centers around Teenager Victor, who is on a journey of self-discovery during which he faces challenges at home, adjusts to a new city and a new high school and struggles with his sexual orientation.
This is undoubtedly one of my favorite Tv shows of the year. Love, Victor is an honest depiction of what it means to be a teen struggling with his sexuality amidst an accepting and a nurturing social environment and a homophobic and a conservative family life simultaneously.
This show’s narrative is plain and simple yet somehow inspiring and heartwarming! It’s filled with beautiful life messages that have the ability to resonate with each spectator. The best way to describe it is by saying it’s both realistic and reasonable.
You see, the very same Charm that spiced up Love, Simon’s narrative is present within Love, Victor’s.
Moreover, this show is filled with diverse and down to earth characters with interesting stories and heart aching struggles. Michael Cimino, Rachel Hilson, Anthony Turpel and Isabella Ferreira did a great job in portraying their characters. But my favorites were Ana Ortiz and George Sear. They both knew how to captivate my attention and get me fully invested!
I honestly suggest that you watch Love, Victor because such tv shows and such stories deserve to be seen and heard and talked about. This show tackled sexuality and what it is like to be a part of the LGBTQI+ community within a toxic and an unaccepting environment filled with toxic masculinity in a really humble manner.
I personally am looking forward to season 2.
