As her parents have divorced, Bella (played by Kristen Stewart) accompanies her father to live in a small town. In the new school, Bella noticed a group of weird people who behaved strangely. They were maverick and mysterious. In the experimental class, she met one of the weirdos-a handsome blond Edward (Robert Pattinson played by Robert Pattinson). His handsome appearance and outstanding conversation fascinated her. During the relationship, Bella gradually developed feelings for Edward, but other weirdos were wary of her. At the same time, a series of deaths occurred in the small town, and Bella’s father was a policeman in charge of investigating the case. However, police intervention did not stop the death threats from spreading. In an accident, Edward rescued Bella. From then on, she discovered that he had superpowers different from ordinary people, and began to suspect that he was a murderer. In the face of the facts, Edward confessed to her that he was a vegetarian vampire, so the murderer was someone else. In the fetters of the murder case, a love between man and ghost begins…
Twilight is a 2008 American romantic fantasy film directed by Catherine Hardwicke and based on the novel of the same name by Stephenie Meyer. The film stars Kristen Stewart as Bella Swan, a teenage girl who moves to Forks, Washington and falls in love with a vampire named Edward Cullen (played by Robert Pattinson).
As Bella and Edward’s relationship develops, they must navigate the complexities of their different worlds and the dangers that come with being involved with a vampire. Bella also becomes entangled with a group of vampires who are not as friendly as Edward, leading to a climactic confrontation.
Twilight was a commercial success, grossing over $400 million worldwide. The film was praised for its atmospheric cinematography and strong performances by its lead actors, particularly Stewart and Pattinson. However, the film also received criticism for its overly melodramatic tone and for perpetuating some harmful stereotypes about gender roles and relationships.
The success of the film led to four sequels, collectively known as The Twilight Saga, as well as a massive cultural phenomenon with devoted fans around the world. Despite the mixed critical reception, Twilight has become a significant part of popular culture in the 21st century.
