Yara Shahidi Starrs in all new clumsy love story
Based on the best-selling novel by Niccola Yoon. It’s the typical dreamy love story, Natasha (Yara Shahidi) the movie follows the philosophical writings of Carl Sagan and like her maestro, Natasha doesn’t believe in cupid.
So there’s a deadline as Natasha is going to be deported the next day by the INS who turns out to be an undocumented Jamaican. I don’t know what happened to her but she claims love is “legit dead-ass not real”. The beginning hints at a quite troubled young woman due to family drama. That is about to change when she meets Daniel Bae (Charles Melton) After a series of ‘fateful’ run ins he is convinced is set up by the universe.
Daniel, of Asian history is a scholarly individual who rolls on high optimism. Majorly, seen in the movie is a bet they struck to make her fall in love with him in a day.
The Movie tends to drift away from the couples’ melodrama’s and is a bit hippy. Daniel takes Natasha sightseeing around New York city. There’s also the brilliant portrayal of racial difference but which blended quite wonderfully.
The Sun is Also a Star, though seeming like the people in the story are facing a dark fate, turns out to be very warm and friendly, promoting the point that all humans can just get along and anything is possible. Well, literally.
