This hard-hitting, coming-of-age drama was the directorial debut of production designer Catherine Hardwicke and was co-written by her and 13-year-old lead actress Nikki Reed. Anxiously trying to fit into the peer-pressure cooker environment of junior high, 13-year-old Tracy (Evan Rachel Wood) goes to shocking lengths in order to befriend Evie (Reed), the most popular girl in school, and also a manipulative liar. Much to the horror of Tracy's fun-loving mother Melanie (Holly Hunter), the two become inseparable, the mother/daughter relationship breaks down and Melanie realises that she may not be able to rescue Tracy from a whirlwind of drugs, sex and crime. The film was based partly on Reed's own experiences and won an award for the director at the Sundance Film Festival.
