Theme

  • Even if your life is tough, its a good idea to believe in someone or something to get you through rough times.
  • Simon says "I think god made me this way for a reason, He has a plan for us" (Simon Birch).
  • I think Simon believing in god helped him realize his purpose in life. I also think Simon sometimes focused to much on gods plan for him. And in the end of the movie it seems like a deer is Simon's spirit animal, because that's the animal they hit before Simon died.

Simon's Character

  • Simon is short and toddler size. He knows that other people look at him differently, and he doesn't care.
  • Internally he seems very hopeful and kind, kind of funny. He stands up for what he believes in, like his faith at church.
  • Simon is a round Character
  • In the movie Simon stands up in church and talks about how he thinks what does having coffee and donuts have to do with God and the church.
  • Joe said "I know as much as she was my mom she was Simon's only mom too" (Simon Birch). It shows that Simon had a connection with Joe's mom too. And that he misses her just as much as Joe does.
