Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret.

A beloved and best-selling classic comes to the big screen with Lionsgate’s adaptation of Judy Blume’s Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret. 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 contemplating 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.

From writer-director 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 the theatrical event for anyone who has ever wondered where they fit in.

"An instant classic of the coming-of-age genre, a warm, witty, incredibly inspiring film that is already one of the year’s best."
Kate Erbland, IndieWire
"What a wonder that the film adaptation of Judy Blume’s beloved 1970 young adult novel Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret is as lovely, heartfelt and, indeed, deeply radical as the original text."
Katie Walsh, Los Angeles Times
