Once again, with the odds stacked against them, two extremely attractive people have fallen in love.
The latest smoldering pair are Natasha (Yara Shahidi) and Daniel (Charles Melton) from “The Sun Is Also a Star,” a sweet but soupy adaptation of a young adult novel.
Natasha is a Jamaican high school senior in NYC whose obsession with science blurs into her cold outlook on life and love.
Daniel is an aspiring poet, whose Korean parents desperately want him to become a doctor. He has washboard abs and his room is covered in photos of Walt Whitman. Sure.
They meet, and Daniel offers the girl a challenge: Give me a day to make you fall in love with me. Not so trying a task when the dude is hot, smart and sensitive.
The fresh spin is that Natasha, an illegal immigrant, is due to be deported the next day. With stakes so high, the movie should pack a punch. But while it keeps its eye on the stars, its feet never leave the ground.
