Directed by Catherine Hardwicke
Starring Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart

Based on the Stephanie Meyer’s book series, Catherine Hardwicke’s first Twilight installment on film perfectly captures the agonies and melodrama of a teenage love affair. Catapulting its two leads – Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson – to super-stardom. Hardwicke’s film is ripe for revisiting – not only does she nail what it is like to be a teenage girl in love with a vampire – the film has a cool aesthetic missing from the later films in the franchise once she stepped away from the helm leaving the rest of the series to be taken up by male directors.


Screening as part of In Dreams Are Monsters: A Season of Horror Films, a UK-wide film season supported by the National Lottery and BFI Film Audience Network.
