In 2005, after being rejected 14 times by different publishing houses, Stephanie Meyer finally published her novel, Twilight. Soon after, the book topped the best-seller charts, reaching international success by selling over 17 millions copies. And, in 2008, the film version of Twilight (PG-13) was released to packed theaters.

The story begins when Isabella “Bella” Swan moves from sunny Phoenix, Arizona to live with her father in dreary Forks, Washington. Though she dislikes the climate change, especially since she’s clumsy, she starts her new life in the rural town by making friends with Jessica Stanley, her childhood friend Jacob Black and rekindling her relationship with her father, Charlie.

Though Bella misses her mother Renee, who married a baseball player and now travels frequently, she has many distractions in Forks where she becomes quite popular. Yet, it’s her pale, charismatic and mysterious lab partner, Edward Cullen, who catches her eye. As Bella falls for Edward, she also discovers Edward’s and his family’s secret — they are vampires.

Despite this family edict to never prey on human flesh, Edward finds Bella to be the most tempting human he’s ever encountered and must fight against his natural instinct. Plus, she’s not the only one who’s falling in love. Find out what happens when a human and vampire risk it all to be together — even if the biggest danger is each other.


Filmed on location in Washington, this movie still was released by Summit Entertainment. Kristen Stewart as Bella, left, and Robert Pattinson as Edward are shown in a scene from, Twilight.

Trivia: According to IMDB, Robert Pattinson had never heard of the Twilight Saga before trying out for the role of Edward. He only knew that Kristen Stewart was playing Bella and he liked her performance in Into the Wild.
