Would you like me to model my new thong? Great for pooping on the go!
Written by director, Catherine Hardwicke and one of the stars of the film, Nikki Reed, Thirteen is a fictionalized account taken from Nikki’s real life. It has been years since its release that I have seen it. I still love this movie.
Tracy (Evan Rachel Wood) is an innocent thirteen-year-old girl that is trying to fit in the cool kids. She befriends the bad girl of the school, Evie (Reed) by stealing a woman’s wallet. She descend into a downward spiral of drugs, sex and alcohol.
The more time that Tracy spends with Evie, the more nasty she gets to her mother, Melanie (Holly Hunter), a hairdresser and former alcoholic that is trying to penetrate girl world. She seeks solace to her boyfriend, Brady (Jeremy Sisto).
I know that the average teen wouldn’t expierence a quarter of the shit that Tracy and Evie have done in this movie. I could have happen.
The organic camerawork make the movie feel like a documentary. It felt so raw and real. A great flick.
Judgment: If you want to reach out to your teenage daughter, you must watch this movie together.
