Editorial Reviews

Praise for the film Twilight : "Epic! Sexy, stylish and altogether the coolest movie of the year" - Shawn Edwards, Fox TV ". . . getting Catherine Hardwicke to direct Twilight was a shrewd move, because the youthquake specialists of Thirteen treats teen confusion without a trace of condensation. . . .She has reconjured Meyer''s novel as a cloudburst mood piece filled with stormy skies, rippling hormones, and understated visual effects." - Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly "Hardwicke has connected so intensely to the Meyer novel that it''s hard to imagine anyone else making a better version." - Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
