Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret Film Review


Good Morning Lovelies,

Based on the best-selling book by Judy Blume, Are You There God? It’s Me Margaret, is a coming of age film that will forever stand the test of time. As its novel counterpart does! 

Starring Rachel McAdams and Kathy Bates, the feature follows a young Margaret, who is coming to terms with everything that growing up throws at you. 

From first kisses to periods, it is the perfect piece of cinema from recent years that everyone who is going through the tough times of being a teenager should watch. 

With a 99% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, the film’s director, Kelly Fremon Craig, deserves a number of awards for her work. She has taken the iconic pages of Blume’s book and made them into a fantastic realistic story. 

Even though the film is based in the 70s, it is  the hard work that has gone into making the film so perfect that makes it as important to today’s audiences as it would have done back then. And in ten years time even. 

You don’t have to have read the book to understand the importance of what is being shown. You simply can enjoy the capturing of a young girl blooming into adulthood, whilst facing every day struggles that many of us have gone through, in a clever and real manner. 

If God isn’t there and listening, many of us are. Many more will be. Because this is a film that manages to make everything that young people face come to life. All in a perfect manner! 

5 Stars
