Tracy Freeland (Evan Rachel Wood) is a well-behaved thirteen-year-old who has a strong bond with her mother Melanie (Holly Hunter). That is, until Tracy meets Evie Zamora (Nikki Reed), who introduces Tracy to a world of sex, drugs and stealing.
To think Thirteen was made by the same person who did Twilight. It shows the lifestyle teenagers might go through that parents so dread. If you're wondering, no, I didn't behave like Tracy when I was thirteen (I did, and still do, act rebellious). Wood and Hunter give spectacular performances. If you're a parent of a teenager, the sibling of a teenager or a teenager yourself, Thirteen may look familiar to you.
My Rating: ****1/2
