Thirteen (Hardwicke, 2003): BFI Southbank, NFT2, 6.10pm

This is a 35mm presentation in the Seen & Heard, female coming-of-age season.

BFI introduction:
Thirteen-year-old Tracy begins the seventh grade as a smart and modest student but she craves more, yearning to shed her goody-two-shoes image and catch the attention and approval of Evie, one of the most popular girls at school. Catherine Hardwicke’s groundbreaking debut feature, co-written by then-14-year-old Nikki Reed (Evie) is a brutally honest film about the joys and the horrors of being a teenager.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
