Storyline

At the edge of adolescence, Tracy is a smart straight-A student--if not a little naive (it seems...she smokes and she cuts to alleviate the emotional pain she suffers from having a broken home and hating her mom's boyfriend, Brady.) When she befriends Evie, the most popular and beautiful girl in school, Evie leads Tracy down a path of sex, drugs and petty crime (like stealing money from purses and from stores). As Tracy transforms herself and her identity, her world becomes a boiling, emotional cauldron fueled by new tensions between her and her mother--as well as, teachers and old friends. Written by Miss Kittin

Over-dramatic!
10 July 2004 | by MeekahSee all my reviews

I'm a teenager and I thought this movie looked pretty interesting when I saw the previews. The performances were excellent , the directing and art direction was superb , it seemed amazing (although the lighting and contrast was a bit weird sometimes) However , the plot is a little unrealistic. Yes , thirteen year olds do have some changes , can get into drugs and start into sexual activity , but the degree of all those things they show in the movie is a little over-exaggerated for a thirteen year old. Maybe fifteen or sixteen would have been a bit more believable. I found a lot of the "shocks" in the movie weren't that shocking. It's not realistic , I think the main purpose of the movie is to scare the parents of every thirteen year old girl who think that this is what every teenage girl is up to. Worth watching once to see the performances , but I can't really take it seriously as a film accurately depicting a thirteen year old. 6/10
