The Sun Is Also a Star

Critics Consensus

The Sun Is Also a Star has a pair of easy-to-love leads, but tests the audience's affection with a storyline that strains credulity past the breaking point.

Movie Info

College-bound romantic Daniel Bae and Jamaica-born pragmatist Natasha Kingsley meet--and fall for each other--over one magical day amidst the fervor and flurry of New York City. Sparks immediately fly between these two strangers, who might never have met had fate not given them a little push. But will fate be enough to take these teens from star-crossed to lucky in love? With just hours left on the clock in what looks to be her last day in the U.S., Natasha is fighting against her family's deportation as fiercely as she's fighting her budding feelings for Daniel, who is working just as hard to convince her they are destined to be together. A modern-day story about finding love against all odds, "The Sun Is Also a Star" explores whether our lives are determined by fate or the random events of the universe.
