Dir. Kelly Fremon Craig. 2023, 111 mins. DCP. With Abby Ryder Fortson, Rachel McAdams, Kathy Bates, Benny Safdie. Judy Blume’s groundbreaking classic novel Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret has impacted generations with its timeless coming-of-age story, insightful humor, and candid exploration of life’s biggest questions. In this adaptation produced by Academy Award-winner James L. Brooks, eleven-year-old Margaret is uprooted from her life in New York City for the suburbs of New Jersey, going through the messy and tumultuous throes of puberty with new friends in a new school. She relies on her mother, Barbara, who is also struggling to adjust to life outside the big city, and her adoring grandmother, Sylvia, who isn’t happy they moved away and likes to remind them every chance she gets. A Lionsgate release.
