Thirteen (2003)
Directed by Catherine Hardwicke
Written by Catherine Hardwicke & Nikki Reed

If you're a clueless parent at sea with the mystery of teenage rebelliousness circa '03, Thirteen is an unflinching and brutally honest portrayal that will open your eyes and initiate communication with your estranged teenaged son/daughter.

If you're someone who has lived through self-destructive behavior that you know your parents would be at sea trying to fathom, Thirteen is a glorified afterschool special.

If you're just looking for hot 13-year-olds to kiss, wear revealing clothing, do drugs, rebel, and scream in angst at their clueless parents, Thirteen probably serves you best of all.
