Twilight is about getting older and relationships - not about a murder mystery. It's about love when you reach a certain age; nothing is in primary colors. See more »

Trivia:

Got the idea for his Bonnie and Clyde (1967) script from his father Ellery Douglass Benton who had actually attended the separate funerals of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow. See more »
