Gothic romance about a self-possessed high school student (Kristen Stewart) who moves to Washington state to live with her divorced father (Billy Burke) and falls for a mysterious classmate (Robert Pattinson) who turns out to be a vampire. Though set against a lush, misty background, director Catherine Hardwicke's stylish screen version of Stephenie Meyer's best-selling 2005 novel for young adults never takes itself too seriously, as the conflicted central relationship—restrained by the gentlemanly bloodsucker's scruples—parodies both adolescent awkwardness and teenage yearning. Brief but intense action violence, a scene of mild sensuality, a few sexual references; acceptable for older teens. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II—adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13—parents strongly cautioned; some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
