  • Steve Pulaski's rating of the film Midnight Sun

    Maybe it's my crush on Bella Thorne or my recent exposure to romance drudgery like "Fifty Shades Freed" and "Forever My Girl," but this "Everything, Everything" clone is perfectly acceptable genre-fare. Buoyed greatly by two leads with effective chemistry, and their relationship, which isn't pitiful but mutually beneficial, it's a pleasant diversion from reality sustained until you crash back down to the Real World.
