Product Description

Anxiously trying to fit into the peer-pressure-cooker environment of junior high, thirteen year old Tracy (Evan Rachel Wood) goes to shocking lengths in order to befriend Evie (co-writer Nikki Reed), the most popular girl in school. Now the two are inseparable – and incorrigible – leaving Tracy’s desperate mother (Academy Award winner Holly Hunter) powerless to rescue her from a whirlwind of drugs, sex and crime.

From Amazon.co.uk

A gut-wrenching portrait of adolescence, Thirteen is made all the more powerful because it was cowritten by a teenage girl, Nikki Reed, who also costars in the movie. Tracy (Evan Rachel Wood), a serious good student, finds herself needing to express her anger and resentment at her fractured family life. To rebel, she pursues a friendship with the reckless, alluring Evie (Reed), who seems to have all the cocksure freedom that Tracy desires. What follows is both harrowing and compelling: Tracy becomes enmeshed in a relationship with Evie that empowers Tracy and drags her deeper into the misery she wants to escape--and terrifies her mother (Holly Hunter), who struggles desperately to hold on to her daughter's love. Thirteen makes every step on this path utterly convincing, due to the vivid script, energised direction and astonishingly alive performances from Hunter, Reed and especially Wood. It's jolting, sad and mesmerising. --Bret Fetzer

Format: DVD
This film pulls no punches, and viewers should be aware that this is a serious and at times disturbing portrait of female adolescence - not family viewing. The movie documents the burgeoning friendship between two teenage tearaways, Evie and Tracy. Two relative newcomers Nikki Reed and Evan Rachel Wood expertly play the central characters. Reed is also shockingly credited as co-writer along with the film's director Catherine Hardwicke. Tracy starts the film as every mothers dream daughter; she has close ties to her family, sweet local friends and is academically successful. However she is not content and so pushes her self into a destructive relationship with the schools hottest and most dangerous girl - Evie. Over a four-month period the girls proceed to push the limits of their defined society, together they experiment with drugs and alcohol, self-abuse, their sexuality, and how far they can push the authority figures in their lives.
There are no easy options or answers within this film. While it does touch on the roots of these girls' problems - the lack of father figures, abuse and neglect, mall culture, the increasing sexualisation of young women and plain teenage rebelliousness - it never seeks to give a direct or simple explanation. It is this subtlety that makes the film so powerful. The girls are portrayed neither as monsters or saints, they are a product of society they live in and yet they are fighting against its limitations. Throughout the film I felt sympathy towards all of the main characters, which is impressive given the nature of their actions, however the stand out performance from Holly Hunter as Tracy's mother really is something else.
This is a film that all parents should watch.

Format: DVD
The story of the downward spiral of a 13 year old girl called Tracy, led astray by the 'popular' kid in school, is not shocking but a question poser because of the style that its shot in. The action is fast moving as the girls ascention into adolescance spirals out of control. The use of drugs, alcohol and sexual exploration are well placed and acted out with taste and distintive style, as not to attract the wrong kind of attention to the picture. Nicki Reed's (who plays the bad girl, Evie) story of corruption and exploitation is striking to the eye and the heart. The fact that she co-wrote the script, based on her own experiences, is mind bogling because of her tender age of 15! The eventual destrucive nature of their relationship is brilliant viewing because the acting is 1st class, led by Oscar winner Holly Hunter. A small but major part is assigned to Jeremy Sisto (Billy from Six Feet Under) as a recovering drug addict, for whom Tracy uses as a catalyst for her teenage rebellion!
An accurate portrayel of inner city life in California, "Thirteen" allows the outside world to get a small glimpse at what impressionable teenagers have to deal with in a overly demanding society. The story also deals with betrayel by Tracy and Evie and the path friendship takes when desperation is the motivation.

this film had been recommended to me by a lot of my friends though i have to say i felt quite unsure of what to expect when i first got the dvd. i was assuming it would be a typical hollywood glamorised film about the 'joys' of growing up but what i viewed really gripped me. it was realistic and down to earth and filmed in an intentionally bland colour to set the scene of hopelessness and despair in the mind of the thirteen year old girls. In my opinion it was incredaibly realistic and nail biting and showed the truth instead of sugar coating the topics. brilliant!

Ive just watched this film and there are parts that really get to you. Mosat people remember when they started to change (Usually around 13) like i did. But ive never seen it like this.
As you have read that its about 13 year old tracy who meats the high school girl evie, who shows tracy the real world.
They experience even more and they do drugs, cut thereselves etc. The endings a little disapointing though. Holly Hunter is a class act as Tracy's Mother. And the soundtrack is very funky.
Rent it but dont buy it, its a good one off.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Albatross TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 8 Feb. 2013
Format: DVD
Thirteen is the story of two (you guessed it) thirteen year old girls, growing up in Los Angeles. One (Tracey) is growing up `the right way,' i.e. she studies hard and is generally nice, whereas the other (Evie) is too mature for her own good, engaging in all sorts of illegal vices. However, she's also thought of as both `popular' and `cool.' Therefore Tracey is drawn into her world and things start to spiral out of control from there.

You can probably guess what out of control thirteen year old girls get up to when they're left to their own devices, so I won't dwell on that. Instead, I'll mention some of the criticism the film got, namely that too much happens too quickly. That may be true. In real life perhaps all these tragic events wouldn't happen all at once and to only one person (think `Kidulthood'), but this is a story after all and it would probably be a lot less interesting if the worst thing that happened to Tracey was that her god ate her homework. Secondly, people have said it exploits the underage female actresses. They may have a point on that one, but then so to the filmmakers, who aren't afraid of shying away from what kids actually get up to.

Thirteen is pretty hard-hitting. It's one of those films that's about kids, but you certainly wouldn't want to let your kids watch.

If it teaches us one depressing lesson, it's that people who appear nice are usually not. I found this the most realistic part of the whole film. Evie is - on the surface - lovely. She's polite to adults, always has the right answer for everything and isn't afraid at lying and dropping someone else in the brown stuff to cover her own despicable actions. Unfortunately, I have met a fair few people like that in life.
