Penn, a student at Sword & Cross, is an office aid and goes out of her way early in the movie to let Luce know that she has access to all the students' records. Later, she admits to having read Luce's file, but then not long afterward, she's surprised to find out the previous day was Luce's birthday. If she had read Luce's file, then it seems unlikely she wouldn't have known about Luce's birthday. See more »

A lot like Twilight
I planned to go to the movies with my mom and sister and my sister isn't really a big fan of book-to-movie adaptations so I thought she would hate it and didn't even bother to ask her. However, she asked me!
It's a nice movie if you like the kind of stuff like Twilight, City of Bones and maybe even The Vampire Diaries. It's a fantasy and has somewhat love triangle although the story never fully explains why both guys want the same girl.
The movie starts of very well and is obviously a teen movie, but seems like something anyone would watch (and enjoy) if it came from TV on Saturday when nothing else would. However the ending is left very open, like they're not even trying to get everything in one - or even on two films. I don't know how many books there are, but I'm guessing three or maybe even four.
Not my first choice, but it'll do. Probably nicer to watch as a binge watch when all the movies are out.
