HPL Movies in the Afternoon: "Are You There God? It's Me Margaret"
Thursday, September 21, 2023
If you or your daughters read this book growing up, come join us for the first film version of this beloved and best-selling classic. 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.
Rated PG-13. 111 minutes.
