An Eye for Ethics: <I>Thirteen</i> with Screen Queens

Feminist film critics Screen Queens team up with Conway Hall for a screening of the teen cult classic, Thirteen, by Catherine Harwicke and Nikki Reed.

In Hardwicke’s award-winning directorial debut, honor student Tracy Freeland (Evan Rachel Wood) has a troubling home life, but she is close to her mother, Melanie (Holly Hunter). While trying to conceal her inner turmoil by excelling academically, she befriends the calculating Evie (Nikki Reed), her school’s queen bee. Evie talks Tracy into experimenting with drugs, exploring her sexuality and pickpocketing strangers to finance shopping sprees — but before long, Melanie realizes she must step in and stop her daughter’s destructive lifestyle.

After the film, the Screen Queens will host an interactive conversation with the audience, as we delve into the ethical questions that the film raises.

This event is suitable for over 18’s only, and the film contains content that some viewers may find distressing, including drug use and self-harm.
