Thirteen ★★★★½

"Wow... Wow.. Wow.. and Wow!!"

I thought this was a wonderful movie, gripping, intense and totally realistic. Those who think that some young teens don't encounter these issues, especially in broken homes, are belying reality. World class performances by Evan Rachel Wood and Holly Hunter. The soundtrack, particularly the original pieces, is well done. The movie would have been harder hitting if the director had been a bit more graphic in the sexual situations, not pornographic, but just a bit more honest as to what happens in everyday life. Well worth watching, Sadly Under appreciated.
