Generation [Pop] Gap: Movies for my 13-year-old daughter

My oldest daughter, who turns 13 this month, is always interested in my monthly movie projects, and asked if she could do one after her birthday. I asked my friends at Flickchart to vote in a poll of movies that they think that every 13-year-old should see. Out of 100 movies suggested, 68 qualified as both appropriate and new-to-her. I put the Top 10 movies in a run-off poll and these are the five that won. She'll be watching them over the next two months, and reviewing them in a format yet-to-be-determined.
