The Sun Is Also a Star is neither a complete failure nor a total success, but as someone who considers even a partial victory in the realm of romance films a win, I'll take this marginally likable work.
The Sun Is Also a Star is undeniably saccharine and yet is not without its charms. It tries to explore aspects of modern racial conflict and cultural assimilation, but by keeping its focus on the romance, Star loses most of the power it possesses.
'What if I told you I could make you fall in love with me, scientifically?' Daniel proposes to a skeptical Natasha. As chat-up lines go, it's out there, but this is a story that isn't afraid of a leap of logic.
Immigration, love, loss and realizing that forever is not promised to anyone are key elements of A Star is Also The Sun. Yara Shahidi and Charlie Melton have insane chemistry! Kudos to Nicola Yoon for a complete multi-cultural cast!
