We gave it an A

THIRTEEN R, 95 mins. As Tracy, who enters the seventh grade and descends into a rock & roll hell of her own creation, Evan Rachel Wood is defiant, cunning, morose, gleeful, and frightened, all at the same time. Catherine Hardwicke’s harrowing girlquake explosion of a movie feels like a dramatized documentary, yet it has the grip of a thriller.
