(USA, 2008, 122 minutes)
The new girl at a small town high school in the Pacific Northwest falls in love with an impossibly beautiful but mysterious classmate that turns out to be a vampire. Moody, surprisingly old-fashioned romance for teenage girls from a best-selling novel, impeccably presented and produced, resembling nothing so much as an updated “women's picture” of mid-century Hollywood.
