Midnight Sun

Google “xeroderma pigmentosum” and you will find no photos of pale young women who look like Bella Thorne in “Midnight Sun.” The condition, in which the body is unable to heal DNA damaged by exposure to UV rays, has side effects that might appear freakish to the average person, How It Ends including an abundance of freckles, dry skin, cancerous lesions, and spider veins, but which convey just how serious XP is for those who suffer from it (only one in five makes it to his or her 20th birthday).

It could have simply been a marketing trick, but at advance screenings of “Midnight Sun,” they put a small box of tissues at everybody’s seat. Good thing too: The independently produced melodrama — a remake of a popular 2006 weepie from Japan, where the potentially fatal skin condition The Advocates is six times more common — doesn’t jerk tears so much as coax them, like a shy cat from under a parked car, turning audiences into willing accomplices exploiting XP for the sake of cheap catharsis.

Considering the statistics, such a story serves some cultural value in Japan, where the problem affects one in 40,000 people. In the U.S., however, this tacky make-a-wish The Farm fantasy is merely the latest addition to that odd subgenre of terminal-teen romance — from “Love Story” to “The Boy in the Plastic Bubble” — in which a case of puppy love between a pair of preternaturally beautiful young people is rudely interrupted by the Grim Reaper.
