Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret

It’s Me, Margaret has connected with readers through its relatable story, achingly funny details, and candid exploration of life’s biggest questions.

“Here is a film that, like its source material, treats its characters with care and tenderness, establishing an instant and unbreakable bond with the audience that hits home in scene after scene.”
“The film version is an utter delight, a loving adaptation that’s both true to the book and endearingly fresh.”
“Craig’s spin on Blume’s classic is just as exhilarating as her debut film “The Edge of Seventeen.” Her deep respect for the foibles of girldom and her emotionally intelligent exploration of prickly family dynamics make her a perfect match for the material, and elevates Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret far above most modern films that attempt to tackle similar material.”
