Twilight (2008)

Director: Catherine Hardwicke

Writer: Melissa Rosenberg

Well, the best place to start first is with Twilight. The first part of the series begins when Bella arrives in Forks, Washington, for the first time. She comes into the town to live with her father, a local cop Charlie (a Twilight Saga character standout.) As time goes by, Bella becomes fascinated by Edward Cullen (an extremely attractive) brusque teen attending the same local high school. As the story progresses, Bella learns that Edward’s family is (“vegetarian”) vampires. The mind-reading vampires are just as fascinated with Bella as they cannot read her mind. Bella and Edward fall in love when she becomes the target of a group of hostile vampires. Edward’s family steps up to protect Bella.

So Edward and the rest of the Cullen’s pack up and leave town, not even saying goodbye leaving Bella falling back into depression. One light in her life is Jacob Black, another local teen, and werewolf who helps her fix her truck. So the iconic love triangle is born.
