We gave it a B+

George, a professor, channels ancient gods and goddesses in his lectures. Irene, an empiricist, believes in keeping humans at bay. The story of these soul mates — both astronomers — would incite eye rolling were it related by a writer less deft than Netzer, who is wise about the randomness of love and all its absurdities. Night Sky‘s silliness belies a steady heart: It’s a lovely summer valentine. B+
