Being pasty, mopey and filled with indescribable longing isn't just for sparkly vampires anymore.

Twilight's Robert Pattinson shows off his acting chops in The Bad Mother's Handbook, a 2007 BBC family drama in which the future Edward Cullen plays a super uncomfortable, scarf-wearing nerd—and is totally adorable at it, sigh—who begins a sweet romance with a pregnant classmate.

Hitting DVD on Aug. 24, on the heels of Eclipse, the film also stars Dr. Who's Catherine Tate, which adds immeasurably to its potent combination of nerd-chic and romantic angst. Check out some of the R.Pattziest parts in the clip above. You like?
