Catherine Hardwicke


Edition 2003
100' - 2003 - Drama - Dialogue: Portuguese, Spanish, English
Director: Catherine Hardwicke Composer: Mark Mothersbaugh With: Nikki Reed, Evan Rachel Wood, Holly Hunter
At the edge of adolescence, Tracy is a promising student and the loving apple of her mother's eye. But that was before she fell under the spell of Evie, the most popular and beautiful girl in school. Tracy aches to become Evie's friend but fails the secret code of acceptance. Wrong socks, wrong look. As Tracy transforms te reach for a new life, her world becomes a boiling, emotional cauldron fueled by new tensions between her and her mother, teachers, and old friends. each decision is radical, each choice is major, each crisis is huge, and it all makes Tracy squeal with horror and excitement. But that's what it's like to be 13! Thirteen is an uncommonly brilliant effort hatched from a pitch-perfect script cowritten by Hardwicke and 13-year-old co-star Reed, upon whose experiences the film is inspired. it is a splendidly vibrant and authentic portrait of what this road looks like for youths in the new millennium.
