Abstract: In this article, I look into some of the key elements of sentimental education, or emotional education in the broadest sense of the term, that are conveyed through a set of films that were extremely successful and popular among young and adolescent audiences a few years ago: the Twilight saga. The thesis that we put forward here is that, at a mythological level, this cinematographic saga (as well as the novels by the same name, which have not been analysed in this study) recreate a key factor in the mythological fabric of contemporary times in relation to the role of emotions in the structuring of society (Illouz, 1997).
