Based on Sherwood King's 1938 novel If I Die Before I Wake, Orson Welles' 1947 thriller pairs the filmmaker with screen siren Rita Hayworth for a murderous battle of the sexes. During a stroll through Central Park, Irish sailor Michael O'Hara (Welles) rescues blonde stranger Elsa (Hayworth) from three ruffians. She thanks him profusely and reveals that she and her husband, criminal defense attorney Arthur Bannister (Everett Sloane), are heading to San Francisco via the Panama Canal. Michael is attracted to Elsa and he signs on for duty aboard Bannister's yacht. Bannister's partner, George Grisby (Glenn Anders), approaches the sailor with an incredible offer: to help him fake his own death in exchange for 5,000 dollars. Grisby promises Michael that he will not be convicted of murder since there will be no body. The sailor eventually agrees, unaware that Grisby intends to murder Bannister and frame Michael, or that private investigator Sydney Broome (Ted de Corsia) is on Grisby's trail.

Thirteen 4 stars

Thirteen-year-old high school student Tracy desperately wants to shrug off her good girl image. By chance, she meets baddest girl on the block, Evie, who is only too willing to lead Tracy astray, introducing the virginal teen to the delights of drugs, alcohol and meaningless sex. Within weeks, Tracy's grades have plummeted from As to Fs and when her mother tries to intervene, Evie turns the situation to her own advantage.

  • GenreDrama, Indie
  • CastEvan Rachel Wood, Nikki Reed, Holly Hunter.
  • DirectorCatherine Hardwicke.
  • CountryUS
  • Duration100 mins
  • Official site
  • Release05/12/2003 (selected cinemas)

Based on the real-life exploits of co-writer and actress Nikki Reed, Thirteen is a hard-hitting rites-of-passage drama about a high school student called Tracy (Evan Rachel Wood), who desperately wants to shrug off her good girl, straight A student persona and enjoy life for once. By chance, she meets baddest girl on the block Evie (Reed), who is only too willing to lead Tracy astray, introducing the virginal teen to the delights of drugs, alcohol, body piercings and meaningless sex. Within weeks, Tracy's grades have plummeted from As to Fs and when her mother, Melanie (Holly Hunter), tries to intervene, Evie turns the situation to her own advantage, driving a wedge between mother and daughter. As Tracy descends into self-abuse and self-loathing, it seems that tragedy is the only possible conclusion, unless she can pull herself back from the brink. Infused with raw emotion and gung-ho direction that wallows knee-deep in the misery of the characters, Thirteen is a gripping portrait of modern day teen angst, stripped bare of any rose-tinted, Dawson's Creek sentimentality. In its place, the film delivers a startling vision of young lives on a knife edge, teetering between independence and conformity. Wood's bravura lead performance is matched by Hunter's tour-de-force supporting turn as a mother with her own demons to exorcise and Reed expertly teases out the sadness of the bad girl who yearns for a mother like Mel. Catherine Hardwicke's riveting film is a wake-up call for 21st century parents that is almost impossible to ignore.
