The book was great but this did not translate well on the screen. They changed some key scenes in my opinion. Also found the soundtrack lacking.

I loved it. I don't normally watch romantic films but I wanted to support Nicola Yoon's second book turned to film. It was nice to see the guy so into the girl

While time is likely on the side of its leads, their chemistry only goes so far in what feels, finally, like a half-baked movie.

As talented as Yara Shahidi and Charles Melton are individually, they don’t have much chemistry.

Russo-Young (“Before I Fall”) takes some considerable risks in her direction to make The Sun Is Also a Star look different from the typical romantic drama. But not all of these creative decisions pay off.
