It is based on Stephenie Meyer’s 2005 novella of the same name, Twilight, which was adapted into a film in 2008. Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are the stars of Catherine Hardwicke’s film, which is directed by her husband. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 Vampires attempt to protect Bella Swan from a group of evil vampires in this tale of romance between a young woman (Bella Swan) and her vampire love interest (Edward Cullen).
While in production at Paramount Pictures, the screen adaptation diverged dramatically from the novel and took three years to complete. Three years of stalled development saw Summit Entertainment buy the rights to the novel.
Shortly before the 2007–2008 Writers Guild of America strike, Melissa Rosenberg penned a fresh adaptation of the novel that attempted to stay true to the plot of the original. The film’s principal photography was concluded on May 2, 2008, after 44 days of shooting.

Plotline of Twilight
Millions of tween girls have been captivated by Stephenie Meyer’s best-selling young adult novel TWILIGHT (and their mothers). When Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) goes from sunny Phoenix to the rainiest city in the country, Forks, Wash., to live with her father, Charlie (Billy Burke), she becomes a brilliant, mature teenager.
Bella is introduced to a group of five beautiful, aloof, and alabaster-skinned siblings at school. It’s not long until Bella develops feelings for the intriguing, attractive, and physically strong Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), who’s been assigned to be her lab partner. He has feelings for her, and as a vampire, he would do anything to be able to drink her blood.
In contrast to the majority of malevolent undead, Edward and his family are “vegetarians” who eat animal blood to survive in the modern world. Is it possible for a human girl and a vampire boy to discover love despite the bloodlust of the former?
Review About Twilight
Catherine Hardwicke’s adaptation of the novel is surprisingly accurate to the source material, and she manages to capture the young emotions and relationships. Bella and Edward’s romance is swoon-worthy, but other sections of the film (like Edward’s reaction to his first breath of Bella’s perfume) are schlocky and even unintentionally amusing.
Even though Ashley Greene’s clairvoyant vampire Alice and Burke’s Charlie are spot-on representations of the kind of loving but detached parent Meyer writes, other characters, such as Jasper (Jackson Rathbone) and Rosalie (Nikki Reed), are reduced to a single note by the supporting cast members.

With his overly gelled hair and perpetual look of annoyance, Rathbone was a walking statue who drew a lot of chuckles. Despite some minor cosmetic flaws, the most of the characters — including the evil vampires led by James (Cam Gigandet) — behave exactly as they do in the novel.
Hardwicke and screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg have included most of the book’s crucial features, like Edward’s sleek silver Volvo and Bella’s beat-up red pickup, the sparkly meadow scene, the lullaby, and the longing stares. Twilight, on the other hand, will be viewed as frivolous and superficial by viewers who don’t understand why so many girls in the audience are sporting “Team Edward” tees.
Fans of the Twilight series will no doubt enjoy this film because it clearly focuses on the Bella-Edward romance (the on-screen kisses are even more passionate than in the book). Stewart’s continual awkwardness and somber gasomber Bella honor.
However, if Pattinson had mastered a more sophisticated American accent, the British actor’s performance would have been much better. As soon as the star-crossed couple takes their first steps together or shares a kiss, the crowd erupts in applause and shrieks of delight. Teen love is offered with cheese (and bloodlust) to those who don’t mind. Whatever happens, it’s going to be a must-see for the show’s rabid teen
