Carley and I didn’t know what to expect watching the movie Midnight Sun besides knowing it would have some romance within it. Little did we know that this movie would have us sobbing with our eyes swollen with tears. This movie was extremely good and had an amazing storyline.

Can you imagine staying inside everyday of your entire life. It would be miserable not being able to go outside, not even to play at the park as a young child. One would never be able to enter a public school, never meet new students, and never be able to have a social life. Sitting inside scared of taking any kind of risk would be a miserable life if it were my opinion. What if you had to live your life isolated? Wouldn’t it get lonely or boring?

The movie Midnight Sun portrays a teenage girl that had a disease called Xeroderma Pigmentosum(XP). This disease means her skin can’t come into contact with the sun or she gets very sick and may very possibly die. She lives inside all day with her dad because her mom had passed away. She was homeschooled but would watch out her window for the same guy everyday. She, however, was allowed to go out during night, and she would go play her guitar at the train station. She had an amazing voice.

One day the boy she had watched for years out of her window met her at the train station. After that they were together about every night. They fell in love, but she hid her disease from him. She was embarrassed and scared of his opinion. She thought this was a good plan until one night he did not get her home in time. The sun had begun to rise, and she felt the rays on her fragile skin. She began to become ill and she broke up with the guy because she did not want to hurt him. Her hands began to shake which took away the joy of playing her guitar. Although she could not play, her amazing voice will take her far. The guy she fell in love with never stopped loving her, and he made all her dreams turn into reality. Hearing the song she wrote being played on the radio, my emotions were struck. My eyes filled with tears, I continued to watch the movie, but if I told you the rest, there would be no reason to watch it.

I would recommend this movie to any teenager or older. If you are a cryer, make sure you have a box of tissues ready. This movie is filled with romance and mystery, and it will grab your attention from the start. I loved the mystery throughout the whole movie. Sometimes the end of the movie can ruin the entire movie for you, but this ending was fantastic. I hope you get to watch this movie and enjoy it for yourself. It is a great movie with lots of emotions.

    I’ve watched this movie before, and I agree that it’s a great movie. I loved how you asked rhetorical questions to convince people to think about what it would be like to live with this disease. You did a good job of describing the movie without spoiling it. Great article!
