Twilight (2008) (part 9 of 9)

She arrives at the ballet studio and hops out of the taxi without paying, while her voiceover says that she doesn’t mind all the decisions that led her to this point, since they also led her to Edward. Say what?

She also takes a moment to check the bottle of pepper spray. I love that they added it to the plot.

Entering the eerily-lit ballet studio (I almost typed “stupido” there), she hears Mum calling her name and hurries off to investigate. Opening a cupboard, she finds…

…a TV, playing an old home movie from when she was a kid.

Oops.

What I want to know is, who filmed this home video? And why was their mise en scène so professional? Oh, right.

James appears, snickering. Bella turns and sees a dozen reflections of him smirking at her. So yes, it would seem vampires do have reflections in this universe. Just as well, since there wouldn’t have been any advantage at all in filming this in a room full of mirrors otherwise.

The real James advances, calling Bella a stubborn child. Bella, the genius, intuits that her mother isn’t really here. Bingo! Give that kid a prize!
