First Look Images

Lionsgate has revealed first-look images featuring Rachel McAdams, Abby Ryder Fortson, Benny Safdie, and Kathy Bates in the upcoming movie, Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret. 

 

The movie is set to release on April 28, 2023.

 

Lionsgate released the photos with the following statement: For over fifty years, Judy Blume’s classic and groundbreaking novel Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret has impacted generations with its timeless coming-of-age story, insightful humor, and candid exploration of life’s biggest questions.

 

In the big-screen adaptation, 11-year-old Margaret (Abby Ryder Fortson) 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 (Rachel McAdams), who is also struggling to adjust to life outside the big city, and her adoring grandmother, Sylvia (Kathy Bates), who isn’t happy they moved away and likes to remind them every chance she gets.

 

The film also stars Benny Safdie (Licorice Pizza, Good Time) and is written for the screen and directed by Kelly Fremon Craig (The Edge of Seventeen), based on the book by Judy Blume, and produced by Gracie Films’ Academy Award winner James L. Brooks (Best Picture, 1983 – Terms of Endearment), alongside Julie Ansell, Richard Sakai, Kelly Fremon Craig, Judy Blume, Amy Lorraine Brooks, Aldric La’auli Porter, and executive produced by Jonathan McCoy.

That experience really changed the way I viewed my relationship with money and the importance of accessible personal finance education.
