Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret
A tender adaptation of the phenomenally popular 1970 coming-of-age novel by Judy Blume from the writer-director of “Edge of Seventeen”.
At 11, Margaret is moving to a new town and beginning to contemplate everything about life, friendship and adolescence. She relies on her mother (Rachel McAdams), who offers loving support but is herself finding her own footing in a new place, and her grandmother Sylvia (Kathy Bates), who is coming to terms with finding happiness in the next phase of her life. For all three, questions of identity, one’s place in the world, and what brings meaning to a life will draw them closer together than ever before.
“It is a responsible and uncomplicated adaptation, one that capitalizes on the story’s lore and legacy.” ~Lovia Gyarkye, The Hollywood Reporter
“In a landscape with few movies for families, and even fewer for tween girls, Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret is a fantastic entry.” ~Kristen Lopez, TheWrap
