So, about a month ago, I watched The Sun Is Also a Star, and today, I’m gonna talk about what I thought about it.
The Sun Is Also a Star is a movie based on a YA novel of the same name, which is written by Nicola Yoon.
Anyway, so, it is a story of two teenagers, Natasha, who needs to stop her family from being deported to Jamaica, and Daniel, who wants to become a poet but his family wants him to become a doctor instead. They meet each other and instantly fall in love.
I can’t believe I really enjoyed this movie even though I cringed a lot while watching it. In my defense, the characters in this movie fall in love in less than twenty-four hours and I really dislike insta-love *barfs*. One of the main characters believes in fate, so much so that he follows (read: stalks) a other main character around. He kinda creeped me out because of his belief in fate — I mean, I have no problem if someone believes in fate, it’s just that he chalked literally every freaking thing up to fate. I don’t remember much but I’m pretty sure he followed the female main character around just because he “believed” they were meant to be together. And, yeah he’s definitely not in my good books.
This movie did make me happy, even though it shook me up a little. I loved the soundtrack — I praise the people who chose music and musicians for this movie! It was so amazing! I loved the actors too – I adored Yara Shahidi and Charles Melton, and the actors who played secondary characters. Their performances were fire.
So, I’ve watched the movie, and I don’t think I’m gonna read the book anymore because I already know the story, and I think I won’t really like the book as much if it’s as cringey?
All in all, it was a fun movie, I guess, and you should all watch it if you like young people falling in love in less than a few hours.
