The Press Reviews

  • "Sun" unapologetically embraces deep-dish romantic fantasy and unashamedly exults in the most shameless coincidences imaginable. If that sounds noticeably lacking in irony, sarcasm and snark, it's just going to have to be that way. Full Review

  • I believed in Natasha and Daniel; I believed in the implausibility of their day. And I believed in the movie's mission, however overpronounced. Full Review

  • The sparks are few in this laboured romance. Full Review

  • They are so appealing - I mean, his last name is Bae, and she never makes a joke about it - that you will totally believe that he is a budding poet and that her thing is astronomy. Full Review
