New Moon (2009)

A break-up movie far easier to swallow than the break-up novel from whence it comes.

Regan Humphrey

Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward (Robert Pattinson), her vampire boyfriend, are happy together, after returning to Forks. They’ve fallen into their own version of normal, in public and in private—But all of that is threatened when an accident causes Bella to bleed and Jasper (Jackson Rathbone), Edward’s brother, nearly kills her. Unable to live with the prospect of causing her further harm, Edward breaks up with Bella and disappears from Forks. Coping with the pain leads Bella both into the arms of an old friend, Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner), and straight into the path of danger. Separating from Edward very nearly kills them both, and if Bella can’t find her way back to him in time, their love will be lost forever, in death.
