Based on the best-selling book by Judy Blume, this heart-warming coming-of-age drama follows 11-year-old Margaret (Abby Ryder Fortson) who is uprooted from her life in New York City when her family moves to the suburbs of New Jersey.

Experiencing all the messy and tumultuous throes of puberty with new friends in a new school, alongside myriad family dramas - Rachel McAdams and Benny Safdie play her parents, and Kathy Bates her grandmother - Margaret directs her confusion and questions to God.

Published 50 years ago, Blume’s story and its candid exploration of life's biggest questions threaded with humour and adolescent angst, is vividly brought to life in this big screen adaptation from director Kelly Fremon Craig (The Edge of Seventeen).

A touching and tender adaptation that does justice to a book which means so much to so many. An enduring, superbly performed triumph. ★★★★★


Heart-stoppingly beautiful. This adaptation is an answered prayer. ★★★★★
