Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret.
horizontal line

[Opens April 28 in theaters.] Terrific acting dominates Kelly Fremon Craig's engaging, poignant, award-winning, coming-of-age, realistic, down-to-earth, wit-punctuated, 106-minute film based on Judy Blume's bestselling 1970 novel in which a smart 11-year-old, sixth-grade student (Abby Ryder Fortson) living in Manhattan with her Christian artist mother (Rachel McAdams), who is estranged from her judgmental, devout parents (Mia Dillon and Gary Houston) in Ohio, and successful Jewish father (Benny Safdie) and reluctantly moves to a New Jersey suburb where she misses her feisty grandmother (Kathy Bates), struggles with her faith and belief in God, worries about getting her period and bigger breasts, and joins a secret club with three classmates (Elle Graham, Katherine Mallen Kupferer, and Amari Alexis Price).
