When her family moves from the city to the suburbs, 11-year-old Margaret navigates new friends, new feelings, and the beginning of adolescence. Effervescent and refreshingly frank about the travails of puberty, this long-awaited adaptation does full justice to Judy Blume’s seminal novel beloved by generations. Written and directed by Kelly Fremon Craig (The Edge of Seventeen) and produced by Academy Award-winner James L. Brooks, the film stars Rachel McAdams, Kathy Bates, and a delightful Abby Ryder Fortson as Margaret. For daughter, mother and grandmother, questions of identity, one’s place in the world, and what brings meaning to a life will draw them closer together than ever before.
“Movies like these barely exist anymore, and certainly not in theaters. Tween girls would do well to seek Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret out. It has all the makings of a classic for the next generation.” — Lindsay Bahr, Associated Press
