Keith the Critic Movie Reviews - Midnight Sun

This movie is the story of young Katie Price who suffers from a rare disease known as XP in which exposure to sunlight may be fatal. Katie, who is played by Bella Thorne, lives with her dad, Jack, in their Washington home. As a young girl Katie would look out her window as the other children walked by. Her mother died when she was young. Her dad, who is played by Rob Riggle, must be her protector along with her friend, Morgan, who is played by Quinn Shepherd.

One night Katie heads to the train station to sing and play her guitar for the travelers. There she meets Charlie, who is played by Patrick Schwarzenegger. She has watched and adored Charlie from her window and runs home when he tries to talk with her leaving behind her journal. Quinn finds that Charlie has the journal and tells Charlie where Katie lives. A budding romance begins but Charlie doesn't know Katie's secret. She just wants to feel normal.

I knew very little of this disease until this movie and had no idea how horrible id could be. The story did show worst case but did a good job of conveying the seriousness of the illness. The first 15 minutes were quite slow, but when it finally got going, I enjoyed it. Bella Thorne, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Rob Riggle, and Quinn Shepherd were all great, especially Rob Riggle in a serious role. This movie will appeal to women and teen-aged girls especially but I enjoyed it too.

I gave it 3 out of 4 stars.
