    13 "Love Simon" Details You Definitely Missed The First Time Watching

    Now the DVD is out, it's time to watch it again, and again, and again.

    1. The Hufflepuff patches.

    20th Century Fox

    In the book which Love, Simon is based on, Simon references Harry Potter a lot as it's his favourite book. In the movie, his room is decorated with a Hufflepuff patch, and so is his backpack. 20th Century Fox had to get permission from JK Rowling to have these in the film.

    2. Drarry Downs Park.

    Speaking of Harry Potter... fans of the franchise will know exactly what Drarry is – the ship name for Draco and Harry, aka Simon's favourite pairing. In the film, the winter carnival is held at Drarry Downs Park.

    3. You can hear Martin make a joke that is a major clue for who Blue is.

    Martin and Abby are laughing at the lunch table, and he says: "Hey what do you get when you cross Black and Jewish? Blue-ish." Bram aka Blue is Black and Jewish.

    4. The notes on Simon's chalkboard walls.

    If you look closely, you can see lyrics from the Elliott Smith song which inspired Simon's email address in the book: "Hour to hour, note to note." There are also scribbles from author Becky Albertalli, including a grinning face you can see on the cover of one of her other books.

    5. His bulletin board.

    There are a lot of nerdy things on Simon's bulletin board that round out the character we know so well from the book. You can see a Hamilton playbill, and a menu for the Waffle House.

    6. Plus there are a few nods for Atlanta locals, where the film is set.
