The Sun Is Also A Star

“WHAT if I told you I could get you to fall in love with me…?”

College-bound romantic Daniel Bae and Jamaica-born pragmatist Natasha Kingsley meet—and fall for each other—over one magical day amidst the fervour 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 US, 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.

The film stars Yara Shahidi (Black-ish) as Natasha and Charles Melton (Riverdale) as Daniel, along with John Leguizamo (John Wick: Chapter 2).

Directed by Ry Russo-Young (Before I Fall), the film is based on the acclaimed bestseller by Everything, Everything author Nicola Yoon. The Sun Is Also a Star was No.1 on the New York Times bestseller list and has received multiple accolades.

The Sun Is Also a Star is released in UK cinemas on August 9, 2019.
