Why watch this film?
Based on the Broadway musical of the same name, '13: The Musical' is the story of Evan Goldman (Eli Golden), a boy entering adolescence who has just gone through his parents' divorce and has to move from New York to a small town in Indiana. Now, he must make friends and become popular as quickly as possible to make his bar mitzvah truly epic.
