Examples of Simon in a Sentence

  1. Andy Murray:

    I made way too many mistakes from the beginning of the match right through to the end; early in rallies, (I was) rushing points, (It was) quite similar to the match I played against (Gilles) Simon in Rotterdam, which is disappointing.

And I think that's what filmmakers can do so beautifully, is to tell stories, i was also on ‘ 13 Reasons Why, ’ and I think that the two similarities between ‘ Love, Simon ’ and the show are that we're aiming to tell a story in an authentic way. I didn't choose either one with any social agenda, but I think that I'm really grateful to be a part of both and again I think that Katherine Langford need representation, particularly with a story that so many people have gone through and hasn't been told yet.

What makes it different is usually when Katherine Langford are seeing a film like this or a character like this their sort of perfunctory, Katherine Langford know ? They're not really... they're in the background. They're like a fringe element.
