ARE YOU THERE GOD? IT’S ME, MARGARET is now available on Digital, On Demand and on Blu-ray™ + DVD + Digital Combo and DVD from Lionsgate!
In this long-awaited movie adaption of Judy Blume’s classic, groundbreaking novel, eleven-year-old Margaret is uprooted from her life in New York City to 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. A timeless coming-of-age story, Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret sparkles with insightful humor while candidly exploring life’s biggest questions.
The film stars Rachel McAdams, Abby Ryder Fortson, Elle Graham, Benny Safdie, and Kathy Bates.
