The Top 8 DVD Reviews (so far): “Thirteen”

Article 3 of 8

Here’s the number 6 (so far) in my Top 8 list of the first 100 TweeterFlix DVD reviews:


On Twitter I wrote, Catherine Hardwicke's entirely too believable story of a good girl gone bad. To the parent of a tweener, it's a horror film. 9 (out of 10) Catherine Hardwicke just has a knack for directing teenagers. (She also helmed “Lords of Dogtown” and “Twilight.”) “Thirteen” has Holly Hunter as a well-meaning, but distracted single mom whose daughter falls under the influence of her much more adventurous friend who introduces her to drugs, sex and crime. The story is compelling. And even more so when you learn that the screenplay was co-written by one of its stars, 15-year-old Nikki Reed.
