Midnight Sun (2018)



Critic Consensus: Midnight Sun is a typically manipulative and contrived teen romance that's unfortunately distinguished by its offensively inaccurate portrayal of a real-life disease.

Movie Info

MIDNIGHT SUN is a romantic tearjerker about 17-year-old Katie Price (Bella Thorne), sheltered at home since childhood with a rare genetic condition, a life-threatening sensitivity to sunlight. Having only her father Jack (Rob Riggle) for company, Katie's world opens up after dark when she ventures outside to play her guitar. One night, her dreams come true when she's noticed and asked out by her longtime crush Charlie (Patrick Schwarzenegger), whom she's secretly watched from her bedroom window for years. As they embark on nightly summer excursions, Katie's risk to sunlight grows and she's presented with the gut-wrenching dilemma of whether she can live a normal life with her newfound soul mate.

Critic Reviews for Midnight Sun

All Critics (61) | Top Critics (17)

Laughably predictable, far too tempered to generate any tearjerking stakes worth caring about.

The "sick lit" genre gets a crushingly bad new addition...spectacularly uninspired stuff.

The storytelling is so soft-centred that it has melted into mush long before Katie is exposed to those lethal sun rays.

It is a genetically modified sobfest, in which terminal illness looks like just another Instagram filter.

With modest production values throughout, "Midnight Sun" feels like four or five episodes of a pretty good drama on the WB network in 1997. In other words, something you used to get for free.

The authentic Sparks movies at least tend to be howlers, with shamelessly overcomplicated narratives and risible twists. Midnight Sun, on the other hand, is straightforward and trite.
