This special event will feature a full orchestra performing Carter Burwell's original film score timed to a screening of "Twilight," the 2008 romantic fantasy that launched the highly successful five-film franchise based on the best-selling books by Stephanie Meyer.
Twilight was one of the biggest movies of 2008. Directed by Catherine Hardwick from a Melissa Rosenberg script and set in the town of Forks, Washington, it introduced transfer student Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart), the mysterious yet irresistible Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) who is revealed as a vampire, and Jacob (Taylor Lautner), who completes the love triangle and turns out to be a werewolf. The subsequent books went on to be made into movies and was one of the most successful movie franchises of the twenty-teens and turned its young stars into Hollywood superstars.
American composer Carter Burwell has written music for more than 80 feature films, including Blood Simple, Raising Arizona, Miller's Crossing, Barton Fink, The Hudsucker Proxy, Rob Roy, Fargo, The Spanish Prisoner, Gods and Monsters, Velvet Goldmine, Three Kings, Being John Malkovich, O Brother, Where Art Thou?
