Take a look to the teaser poster of Midnight Sun (no relation to Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight), the upcoming romantic drama movie directed by Scott Speer based on a script by Eric Kirsten and starring Bella Thorne, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Rob Riggle, Quinn Shephard, Ken Tremblett, Jenn Griffin, Nicholas Coombe, Tiera Skovbye, Paul McGillion, Austin Obiajunwa, and Alex Pangburn:
Love will light the way.
“After being diagnosed at a very young age, KATIE PRICE (Bella Thorne) has lived with an incurable genetic disease, Xeroderma Pegmentosum. Because XP is characterized by an extreme sensitivity to ultraviolet rays, Katie spends the bulk of her life in isolation to avoid sunlight, as any exposure could prove lethal. With the exception of her widowed father JACK (Rob Riggle) and her only friend MORGAN, Katie spends the rest of her time alone by writing songs on the guitar and looking out her bedroom window longing to be a part of the everyday world that we take for granted. From her tinted windowed perch, she tracks the comings and goings year after year of CHARLIE REED (Patrick Schwarzenegger) unbeknownst to him.
With nightfall being the only time to safely leave her home, Katie regularly performs for commuters at a local train station. As Charlie leaves his high school graduation party, he follows the music coming from the platform. Upon seeing Katie for the first time, Charlie is immediately smitten. Choosing to not reveal the severity of her condition, Katie and Charlie spend the summer falling for one another under the stars. In this story of young love, Katie finds her voice while encouraging Charlie to pursue his dream of higher education.
Their blissful romance comes to an abrupt halt when Katie accidentally loses track of time and gets caught in the morning sunlight. She has put herself at risk and is soon told that her condition has accelerated to a point of no return. With time quickly running out, Katie and Charlie want to live life to the fullest and share a love that will change them – and those around them – forever.
MIDNIGHT SUN is a heart-breaking, life-affirming story about first love, dreams realized and one perfect summer.”
