From Cinema Therapy.
In part 2 of our… takedown? of Twilight, we investigate: Is Edward a pedophile? Or merely an abusive, controlling, manipulative stalker? In case you couldn’t tell, we don’t much like this guy.
Licensed therapist Jonathan Decker, and unlicensed filmmaker Alan Seawright dig in to the 2007 megablockbuster TWILIGHT to figure out whether you should emulate Bella Swan and Edward Cullen, move to Forks, Washington, or just buy a steel drum full of body glitter. Also, what to do when someone who is 86 years older than you sneaks into your room to watch you sleep. (hint: don’t fall in love with them.)
There’s so much to unpack in this movie, we actually had to make 2 videos. And that’s not counting the EVEN LONGER VERSION we’ll have on our membership site when that launches (stay tuned.) Watch Part 1 here: https://youtu.be/KgpY9nCo43k
