Are You There God? It’s Me, MargaretPG

Directed by Kelly Fremon Craig | USA | 2023 | 1h 46m | Starring Abby Ryder Fortson, Rachel McAdams, Kathy Bates, Benny Safdie, Elle Graham

In 1970s New York, a young girl’s life is turned upside-down when her family decide to move to the suburbs of New Jersey. Alongside drama at home and having to make new friends at a new school, she navigates the tumultuous throes of adolescence. Based on Judy Blume’s classic young adult novel, this timeless coming-of-age comedy explores teenage girlhood with humour and empathy aplenty.

Reviews

‘Destined to become a classic… an entertaining comedy that also happens to be a stunning evocation of the fear and yearning that come with standing on the precipice of adulthood.’
★★★★★
Lauren Mechling, The Guardian

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

We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
