    With the devout collaboration of the cast, Williams blurs the boundary between experience and storytelling as if the distinction were not only irrelevant but presumptuous.
  2. 88
    One of the truest films I've seen about the ebb and flow of a real relationship.
  3. 75
    The acting is amateurish at times, but always convincing.
  4. 63
    Watching Thirteen is like spending an hour and a half with a poker-faced teen who's obviously unhappy but refuses to talk about what's wrong.
  5. For all its narrative glitches and its homemade quality, Thirteen evokes the rhythm, texture and tone of Nina's world in a way that a more carefully scripted film never could.
  6. 60
    This quietly gripping film is both universal and particular.
  7. 90
    The movie is as eloquently uninflected and filled with quirks as its star.
