Freeview film of the day: Twilight

Twilight ★★★

Some consider director Catherine Hardwicke’s movie the best of the series, although disciples of Stephenie Meyer’s novels about a vampire/human love affair are probably too partisan to make distinctions. It’s certainly alluring to see Kristen Stewart’s Bella fall for Robert Pattinson’s Edward across the canteen, and his initial distaste gives the burgeoning relationship grit. There’s less of Taylor Lautner’s dreary Jacob, too.
