Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret. (2023) Official Trailer - Rachel McAdams

Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret is an astounding adaptation of a beloved book, capturing the essence of what made Judy Blume such a phenomenon while speaking in a voice that resonates whether you were Margaret’s age in 1970 or are a child in the here and now. While there are certainly qualities that could be nitpicked—for example, the subplot concerning Margaret’s Christian grandparents fails to resolve as concretely as in the source material—any adverse criticisms to be lobbed at Kelly Fremon Craig’s film are ultimately minor. This is a funny, sweet, heartfelt exploration of pubescent self-discovery that lives up to its namesake.


Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret opens theatrically on April 28, 2023
