Thirteen has not only been critised for being too cliched, but it has also been critised for being 'too sweeping', however the film deserves absolutly no critism whatsoever. The film is about 13 year old Tracy, a once model pupil who falls from grace when she be-friends Evie. This film is brutally honest, often graphic (scenes depicting Tracy self-harming are haunting), and is possibly the best film I have ever come across in my life. If the story line is not your personal cup of tea, see it alone for the acting skills. Evan Rachel Wood plays Tracy with serious talent, and Holly Hunter gives the audience a sypathetic and realistic performance as her mother, never sure about what is happening to her daughter. The most shocking aspect of this film is that it is semi-biographical by the co-author and co-star of Thirteen, 18 year old Nikki Reed, who gives a fantastic performance as manipulative Evie. In many ways this makes the film more realistic... having been 13 not so long ago myself (i am 17 now) she has helped write one of the most truthful representations of 'teen culture'. Not always this extreme, it is painfully accurate. This film is a wake up call to all parents who excersise too much freedom, take note...

Outstanding,Hard hitting, and superbly acted.
This is a powerful eye opener to the grueling world of teenage
adolesence. I think every parent and teenager should watch this, and see what todays teens are exposed to.
As a 16 year old myself, i was left shocked and speechless while watching this,you also forget that the teens in this film are only THIRTEEN not 16 it is at the very end you realise how shocking and painfully true this film really is,it definatly leaves you thinking and has a strong effect on you.This is one of my all time faveourite films. Outstanding.

Films are often made about teenagers which are very far from the truth. Young girls want to fit in and do things like drinking and smoking. I can relate to this film very well as i am thirteen myself and have been through a bad phase of rebelion. I managed to keep myself from going off the rails but Thirteen shows exactly what happens when you do loose control. This film gets it so right but it also shows that although they seem to have it all both are severly troubled and eventually make their lives worse than perhaps they could be. It is now my favourite film and the qualitly of acting is suberb.

After seeing THIRTEEN, I searched my mental listing of friends who have a daughter approaching thirteen, and to whom I could send a copy of this DVD with the needling note, "You'll be sorrrr-ry!"
Tracy (Evan Rachel Wood) is an uncool 7th grader who wants to be like Evie (Nikki Reed), the coolest girl in school. Tracy manages to get Evie's notice by dressing more stylishly and demonstrating a willingness to engage in petty theft. Evie lives with a female "guardian", but manages to inveigle her way into the good graces of Tracy's Mom, Melanie (Holly Hunter), by concocting a deceptive story of physical abuse at the hands of her guardian's boyfriend. Melanie herself is a recovering alcoholic and single mother living beyond her means, but she allows Evie to move in with herself, daughter, and teenage son. Mel is so busy trying to make financial ends meet and satisfy her own emotional needs with loser boyfriend Brady (Jeremy Sisto) that she doesn't notice as her insidious and parasitic guest involves Tracy in everything on any parent's list of scary stuff: shoplifting, pre-marital sex, body piercing, marijuana and cocaine. And this is on top of Tracy's pre-existent penchant for anorexia and self-mutilation with sharp objects. Tracy is a real piece of work.
THIRTEEN is mesmerizing. It's like watching a slow-motion train wreck. Holly Hunter has received a Best Supporting Actress nomination for her role as the well-intentioned but clueless mother. However, I don't understand why Wood didn't get one also; she's brilliant.
The film can perhaps be characterized as the worse case scenario of what befalls an emotionally isolated child coming from a broken marriage. Certainly, most such young people emerge from the experience relatively unscathed.
