I recently rented the film THIRTEEN at my local video store with some friends (the same age as me) and we loved it. We are all fans of dramas. The film is based on Tracy (Evan Rachel Wood) a girl who changes from good to bad almost overnight because of sexy wild child Evie (Co writer of THIRTEEN Nikki Reed). The film is very emotionally violent. The movie expresses cutting (of wrists), casual sex, violence, substance abuse, drugs, alcohol, in such a powerful way that you can't stop watching even though its very explicit and frank about its subject matter. After watching the movie I even bought it. I rate THIRTEEN, R for mature thematic elements and for strong language, sexuality, and graphic drug use- all involving young teens

Good Movie

Although Thirteen touches very big issues with teens these days I think overall It was a great movie. My mom rented it for me when I was 13, and it honestly made me realize that things that teens are doing are not all fun and games like they think. And can lead to serious consequences, which I knew before watching a movie, but after watching it I would never dabble in any of the things these girls were doing.

The twists and turns of this movie........

i love this movie so much! it's my favorite in the whole world because ti's the only movie middle school kids can relate to. this movie helps parents and kids talk about important issues easier and it's a good conversation starter for those kids that don't talk to their 'rents very much. i think this movie could be watched by kids 12 and up but they have to be very mature and not so naive. if your kid loves rainbows and pink ponies and stuff and has no clue about drugs or sex, this isn't a good movie. but for kids in new york city, like me, we are used to sex and drugs and stuff so this stuff isn't a suprise and the self mutilation scene is entertaining to kids because it's part of the emo craze. i'm not saying that the kids are sadistic or something but now they can actually see an "emo movie". if your kid wants to see it, i recommend a parent watching it with them because undoubtedly the kid will have questions and the role of a parent is to answer them.

This movie was just bad.

Sure, the acting is great; it is Holly Hunter and Evan Rachel Wood, after all, and they've proven themselves. But the situations that the characters get themselves into are completely unrealistic with the majority of teens. Thirteen year olds that I know are not that easily influenced, are not that irresponsible, and certainly aren't just plain stupid. It's not accurate in the slightest and eventually turns laughable because of the last-ditch effort to leave the viewer with a good message.
