For over fifty years, Judy Blume’s classic and ground-breaking novel Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret has impacted generations with its
timeless coming-of-age story, insightful humour, and candid exploration of life’s biggest questions.
In Lionsgate’s big-screen adaptation, 11-year-old Margaret is uprooted from her life in New York City for the suburbs of New Jersey, going through the messy and tumultuous throes of puberty with
new friends in a new school. She relies on her mother, Barbara, who is also struggling to adjust to life outside the big city, and her adoring grandmother, Sylvia, who isn’t happy they moved
away and likes to remind them every chance she gets.
