"Brace yourself" (Rolling Stone) for a raw, revealing insight into urban adolescence that's so intense and realistic, "it's possible to turn away (Interview Magazine). Anxiously trying to fit into the peer-pressure cooker environment of junior high, thirteen-year-old Tracy (Evan Rachel Wood) goes to shocking lengths in order to befriend Evie (co-writer Nikki Reed), the most popular girl in school. Now the two are inseparable - and incorrigible - leaving Tracy's desperate mom (Academy Award winner Holly Hunter) powerless to rescue her from a whirlwind of drugs, sex and crime.

We also have those who thought this film was an absolute waste of two hours. That it was not. While it was not a marvel to behold, it was not horrible crap either. It holds it's own, unfortunately the hype made it something it was not.
While Evan Rachel Wood's performance was powerful and beautifully layered the film seemed like a cross between 90210 and MTV. Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy the film for what it was worth, but it definitely wasn't worth the hype it received.
The film does have many strong points. Evan Rachel Wood, and ofcourse the amazing Holly Hunter. It was co-written by Nikki Reed, who also stars in the film, a young girl who really lived through a similar situation. Although the storyline seems real the dialogue sometimes comes off as less than creative. I can't put my finger on it, but I do think I would have enjoyed the film for what it was worth if it didn't receive such phenomenal hype, and I think half the reviewers agree...you might too.
So, she slept with guys, did drugs, shop-lifted, and wore slutty clothes...Again, it's all Lifetime quality fare. I found nothing compelling about the characters and I wasn't the least bit invested in their outcome...In fact, while watching, I found my attention wavering, quite a bit.
After Kids, films like this just don't have the same shock-value.
Although Evie probably wouldn't have excepted her so fast and probably would have been using her the rest is pretty accurate. I was around 13 when I saw this movie and it really hit home, Tracy and Evie were the girls around me I saw doing the horrible things and hated, only the acting brought it to an emotional level. I was aware of these things and usually unfazed but I was so captivated and involved it shocked me. I did not take my eyes off the screen. Even not have been through those events I could relate completely.
Its a wake up call for everyone, even those with their eyes wide open. My parents watched it and they were in shock, parents everywhere should learn from this movie,same for younger girls. Although it is a movie its still very real,
This is an amazing emotional movie just make sure you read the box first. Go see it.
Evan Rachel Wood deservedly gets the big screen treatment in this highly innovative and faultless masterpiece, from newcomer director Catherine Hardwicke. The initial concerns regarding Hardwicke before the film's release - that the director whose had no previous experience was to helm the feature film makeover- were justified somewhat. Nevertheless, Hardwicke maintains the dark atmosphere that made the movie so popular, and works magic behind the camera, preventing glitzy visuals from overwhelming the absorbing plot, which serves as the backbone of the intelligent screenplay by Catherine Hardwicke and Nikki Reed. Still, you can't help but beam at the epic scale of the proceedings, as you watch colorful and breathtaking montages of Tracy's adventures going down in the steep abyss of hell, accompanied by a balanced variety of sassy and catchy hip-hop tracks. And Evie, of course, is always a delight, revealing the characters deepest thoughts and feelings, and reminding us that it is not all fun and games for our beautiful, lovelorn heroine. This 100 minute emotional roller coaster ride is a perfect blend of light-hearted and sharp one-liners, captivating romance, and emotionally riveting drama. I will not spoil this fantastic film for those individuals who have yet to see it, but I assure you, there will not be a dry eye in the room by the time the credits roll.
This is all simply framework, however. Framework built around the adorable protagonist that is Tracy Freeland, in a brilliant performance, as always, by Evan Rachel Wood ('Simone' 'TV's Once and Again). Her realistically spirited turn as the pint-sized good and geeky girl turned bad, petty drug-taking bad girl will have you glued to the screen with her every move.Read more ›
