Helmed by American filmmaker Scott Speer, and based on the 2006 Japanese film ‘A Song to the Sun,’ ‘Midnight Sun’ is a compelling and poignant coming-of-age romantic drama film. The story of the 2018 film follows talented aspiring musician Katie Price, whose outdoor movements are restricted by a rare condition called Xeroderma Pigmentosum. As a consequence, she can’t go out during the day – so she chooses to sleep it off in the day and roam around at night, performing gigs on the streets.
On one of her night errands, Katie meets the eyes of her childhood crush Charlie Reed. A series of adventures bring the couple together, but Katie does not divulge her condition to Charlie until her health deteriorates and he finds it out. On the verge of a fatal destiny, Katie chooses to let her inhibitions go and sails out with Charlie for a trip of a lifetime. The ending of the film provides a somber conclusion to Katie’s journey, while the journey of Charlie continues.
Starring Bella Thorne and Arnold Schwarzenegger’s son Patrick Schwarzenegger in the lead roles and painted with serene beauty, the film leaves a lasting impression in the minds of the audiences. The story of the film unravels in a tranquil suburban city, and the ending opens up to the vast expanse of the Pacific for a fitting conclusion.
