    All Too Common Reality

    My generation is not of interest to our parents, in large parts, I can say. I can't say that about my own, but in the larger context nobody cares what would happen to their kids like my friends. The only time they might pay attention is if something drastic like a kidnapping happened, otherwise I ain't too optimistic about the baby boomers as parents. Mine have been great and I couldn't have requested for better ones, but if I ended up if ones like the ones typically I would have have been a drug abuser or acoholic or into promisicous sexual activity like this movie. I have seen these self-destructive behaviors occur all the time in my age range, girls and boys alike, and have known some that have died or gone to juvy. Thirteen was certainly a more prosaic and relavatory film than some of Larry Clark's teen exploitation fims he pans as art. I think that, actually, this movie underrated the problems of drug abuse afflicting teens and juveniles. The reasons that drugs are worse in Generation X is because we are starting younger, we're addicted younger, kids are gangsters and in the correctional system younger and also parents are not the authority figures that they should be. Often times, they seem that they want to be peers instead of advisers and they are very inconsistent with rules. They may be strict right now and lenient the next day. Which is it America?

    a reality not to be taken for granted

    the movie is all about what kids all over go through.. adolesence. although in here the whole experience is a more of a twisted masochistic ideal, one can't help but ask.. what if?! it's an eye opener, a prelude to what really is happening. a good movie

    Oddly Disturbing yet truthful...from the prospective of a 21 yr old

    This film hits the nail on the head. Many of the reviewers of this movie seem to be 13 year old girls some say it's very accurate whereas others seem extremely offended by the film as its quote "Not what I do in my spare time." When I first saw this film it was on HBO late night. When I was done I was completely disgusted and appalled by it as it's an extremely disturbing film that chronicles sex, drugs, and cutting at 13. At just 21 things have changed significantly in what young teenage girls today do. I think this is a film that should be seen by parents as well as children and if parents questions his or her child about what they may do in their spare time then good for them. As a parent it's your right to be inquisitive and most importantly informed on what's happening in your childs life. When you don't ask questions, when you have no idea what's going on, if your daughter is being bullied at school or has low life friends, or low self-esteem, things like what's shown in this movie are more likely to happen. So yes this movie is an accurate representation of what's happening with today's youth sex, drugs etc (sure not all) especially when parents don't stay involved. But it should be taken for what it is something that could be, is, or might have happened in the life of your teen. This could just happen to your 15 year old.

    Great movie

    This is a good movie. It was 100% believable and it genuinely seemed like it came from the perspective of someone who was really living that life. It shows how the lives of some young girls are changed when they will do anything to fit it.
