Final Friday Movie Night In-Person
ARE YOU THERE GOD? IT'S ME MARGARET Rated PG-13
Based on beloved author Judy Blume's classic 1970 coming-of-age novel, ARE YOU THERE GOD? IT'S ME, MARGARET follows 11-year-old Margaret Simon (Abby Ryder Fortson) during the tumultuous year in the 1970s that her family moves from Manhattan to the New Jersey suburbs. The only child of Jewish dad Herb (Benny Safdie) and Christian mom Barbara (Rachel McAdams), Margaret has been brought up without religion. But now she begins to search for God, sharing her questions and concerns -- mostly about her changing body, her friends, her crushes, and her desire for a sense of faith and belonging. She spends lots of time with queen-bee neighbor Nancy Wheeler (Elle Graham) and two other friends, Janie (Amari Price) and Gretchen (Katherine Kupferer), who have a secret club where they tell one another everything, including details about their crushes and when they get their periods. And as Margaret deals with her spiritual and physical changes, her mom wrestles with the transition from working art teacher to stay-at-home suburban mom.
