Releasing in UK cinemas on August 9, “The Sun Is Also A Star” depicts a modern-day romance that showcases how love can arise even in the most chaotic of circumstances.
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?
Star Charles Melton describes the film as filled with moments that take his breath away, citing how some scenes left himself and others “hugging after every take”. This emotional sentiment is shared by co-star Yara Shahidi, whose personal life helped “produce many connections to the material”. In the film, Natasha and her family move to the States when she is eight, the same age that Yara’s father emigrated there. Such experience allowed her to be “as invested as possible”, delivering a genuine performance that draws from her own reality.
