The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1 2.0 stars

Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1 movie poster

Finally, a movie about a vampire-human love affair that isn’t afraid to tackle the tough question of what happens when the resulting vampire-human hybrid fetus begins to threaten the life and health of the human (read: fragile) mother. No “happily ever after” here, folks — this is a story about families, the making and breaking of them. If the film ever took a step back from its own overheated drama, it might collapse into farce. But it doesn’t step back. It stays absolutely in the fraught, crazy, muddled moment. With Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson. 2011.
