Cupid's Pulse Article: Movie Review: Midnight SunCupid's Pulse Article: Movie Review: Midnight Sun

By Carly Horowitz

Midnight Sun is no doubt another American romantic drama movie to add to your must see list! In this movie, 17-year-old Katie Price is played by Bella Thorne. Katie has a condition where she is extremely sensitive to sunlight. This leaves her indoors sleeping or playing music during the day, and outdoors exploring at night. That outdoor nighttime exploration becomes a little more intense when she meets the guy of her dreams, Charlie, played by Patrick Schwarzenegger. Things become difficult when Katie has to tell Charlie about her condition and then they have to figure out where they are going to go from there. How will they make this fiery true love work?

This movie can definitely cause a few tears to be shed. Check out our movie review below!

Should you see it:

If you enjoy a classic romantic film, go for it. Director Scott Speer showcases a rich summer romance while demonstrating the difficulties of making a love work when incurable medical conditions are present. This movie is to be released on March 23, 2018.

Who to take:

This movie is perfect to go see with your partner or your friends! It can be a date night or a girls’ night. You can even see it with your mom as it is rated PG-13, so hopefully no embarrassing sex scenes arise.

Cupid’s Advice:

This movie exhibits the real life struggle of obstacles getting in the way of love. Although, strong love trumps all. Cupid has some relationship advice on how to deal with relationships when there is an unchangeable circumstance that exists:

1. Communicate: If you have a situation similar to Katie in Midnight Sun, make sure you fully explain whatever your situation is to your partner when you feel comfortable. It is definitely a lot of pressure to disclose your circumstances on the first date, but you should open up to them as soon as you are ready so that they know what is going on.

2. Do not take rejection personally: We all wish that if we were to tell a partner about a medical condition that they would be so loving and willing to make things work no matter what- although, that is not always the case. Sometimes, people have their own issues or things that they have to take care of and they may become overwhelmed once they are informed of your situation. This does not mean that you are any less of an amazing individual. This just means that you have come even closer to finding your soulmate now that this partner is out of the way.

3. Accept support: If you open up to your partner about your medical condition and they are willing to help and be there for you, accept it! It may feel a little uncomfortable if you are not used to your partner being supportive, but it is an amazing thing. If they want to help in any way, let them know that you really appreciate their comfort.
