Nerve Cinema: Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret.
Nerve Centre presents the screening of the family drama Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret. (2023), starring Rachel MacAdams and Kathy Bates
A beloved and best-selling classic comes to the big screen with Lionsgate’s adaptation of Judy Blume’s Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret. Starring Rachel McAdams, Kathy Bates, and Abby Ryder Fortson as Margaret, this timeless, coming-of-age story has transcended decades and spoken to generations.
At 11, Margaret is moving to a new town and beginning to contemplate everything about life, friendship, and adolescence. She relies on her mother (McAdams), who offers loving support but is herself finding her own footing in a new place, and her grandmother Sylvia (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.
“The sense that they genuinely don’t make mass entertainments like this anymore is palpable, and it’s impossible not to feel grateful for its very existence. This is a movie that, like its source, will amicably report for duty in many young persons’ lives for generations to come.” - Eric Henderson, Slate.
