Lionsgate has revealed first look for the coming-of-age comedy-drama film “Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret”.
Featuring Rachel McAdams, Abby Ryder Fortson, Benny Safdie, and Kathy Bates, the film is based on the 1970 novel of the same name by Judy Blume. It is written and directed by Kelly Fremon Craig (The Edge of Seventeen) and Gracie Films’ Academy Award®-winning producer James L. Brooks.
“Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret” is set for theatrical release on April 28, 2023, by Lionsgate.
Here’s the film’s official synopsis:
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.
