Thirteen

A cautionary tale, written by a fifteen year-old kid. Amazing though dark and desperate. No one “likes” a film like this, but parents, if you are in a listening mode, listen. A “nice” girl goes bad when she hits middle school and mom doesn’t have a clue about the kinds of questions she might ask and her kids don’t come first. She (Holly Hunter) is not a bad person, just so clueless and without personal resources. She kind of floats through life and when she finally does get involved, we wonder what difference it will make because she just doesn’t know what to do.
