The US Conference of Catholic Bishops Office of Film and Broadcasting (evaluating “according to artistic merit and moral suitability”) has finally released their review of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. From the review:
Though Bella is anxious to consummate her love for Edward, their brief, fully clothed bedroom encounter terminates in his refusal to do more than kiss and caress her. But while his restraint was previously motivated by the fear that passion might drive him to put his fangs into Bella, Edward now takes a stand on principle, resolving to uphold Bella’s virtue until the two are married.
When Edward acknowledges that such values-driven behavior isn’t “modern,” Bella perhaps says more than she knows when she responds, “Not modern; it’s ancient!”
