Twilight is both a Romance and Fantasy film about a teenage girl

and a vampire who fall in love. The movie is based upon a popular

young adult book of the same name. Because it was intended for

a younger audience, its subject matter and rating reflect those

milder interests. The movie came to theater in November 2008 while

the DVD was released in March of 2009.

Twilight is rated PG-13 due to some violence as well as one scene

of sensuality. For the most part, it is on the softer side of

the PG-13 rating. Parents who are concerned with the content of

the movie are advised to first watch the DVD themselves.

There has been at least as much criticism of the movie Twilight

as there has been praise for it. This does not have so much to

do with the rating as the quality of the writing. However, even

if a parent isn’t fond of the idea of having the DVD around, it

is useful to note that the book was nominated within the American

Library Association’s “Top Ten Books for Reluctant Readers”

list. It may be worthwhile encourage a child’s interest in the

story as it can also promote a passion for reading.
