What the Critics say
Graye Morkel The flick gave me more “Neflix-movie” than big screen blockbuster, which by no means is an insult. That said, The Sun is Also a Star can also be praised, for under the fluffy parts there are some moments of realism, where the movie touches on serious issues such as cultural identity, and immigration laws.
Tomatometer 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 Review Query Engine|
Sandie Angulo Chen Charming opposites-attract adaptation has romance, language.
Jim Judy Featuring winning performances, a good soundtrack, and some creative flashback moments explaining (via voice-over narration) family history and more, “The Sun is Also a Star” might not exactly be realistic, but it shines so brightly that you probably won’t care.
