THIRTEEN

This week's movie:
THIRTEEN

If you have young daughters, or plan to have young daughters, then this is the movie for you. If you've had young daughters, then you'll watch this movie and say, "Yeah ..... that's about right."

We like to think that we are the biggest influences in our kids' lives, but it's simply amazing at what a little peer pressure can do. This is why this film is astounding.

  • The young girl's transformation is frightning. You see it coming and know that it is inevitable.
  • You really feel for the mother (Holly Hunter got an Oscar nomination for her role).
  • You know (or knew) people like this.
  • The screenplay was written by the young actress playing the Evie character (the "bad" girl). The story was actually about her own recent childhood (she's doesn't play herself in this movie).
  • It makes you nostalgic for "after school specials".
If you have teenage girls, watch it with them.

Enjoy

thirteen is a must see.

If you liked KIDS, Bully, Fresh, and River's edge, you will like thirteen.
