When her family moves from the city to the suburbs, 11-year-old Margaret navigates new friends, feelings, and the beginning of adolescence.

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 beginning to contemplate everything about her life, friendship, and adolescence. She relies on her mother (Rachel McAdams), who offers loving support but is finding her own footing in a new place, and her grandmother Sylvia (Kathy 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 life will draw them closer together than ever before. “Are You There God? It’s Me Margaret.” is the film for everyone who has ever wondered where they fit in.
