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 Lionsgate’s 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.

    I really love that they chose to keep the story in the original time period it was written in instead of modernizing it. I think modernizing it and tweaking some details to fit that would have worked okay but there’s something about keeping it set in the 70’s that I think will work better

    Also the blonde girl (I forget her name) playing one of the friends is an incredible actress. Her performance on _Secrets of Sulphur Springs_ blew me away and I’m glad to see her getting more work

      @Fall festivities 48 I’m glad I’m not the only one tearing up over this.😭

    • Becky Christiansen says:

      Yes! That was my first question when my daughter shared this with me – “is it in the 70s??”


    • S R says:

      I loved this book when I was a teenager, and I’m glad too that they kept the setting in the 70s. Updating books that were originally set in the 70s seldom if ever works.

      Me too! I am in tears. I can’t wait..

    • Sinéad Walsh says:

      It’s really on trend to set movies and TV series around this time period lately. So I imagine this drove their decision aswell

    I’m honestly surprised that a movie version of this book doesn’t already exist. But I guess it’s time. LOL I’m here for it. I remember reading this in fifth grade. Such a good book for young girls to read and realize that all the weirdness they are going through is normal. It will definitely be a good film viewing for today’s middle schoolers and for all the millennials, Xillennials and gen-Xers who grew up with the book.

    I read this book SO many times in my teens… It kept me sane during the weirdest point in my life!! And Rachel McAdams is in it as a bonus!! ❤️❤️❤️

    I remember my fifth grade teacher reading this book aloud in class. We all got excited when it was “story time.” She gave that book life.😊

  5. Rutabaga64 says:

    I lost track of how many times I read this book while growing up in the 70s. It’s amazing that it’s taken this long for it to be made into a movie!

  6. Kristen Chandler says:

    Probably like a lot of people, this was one of the books I reread the most as a kid – it both taught me what a period was and shaped my views on God. I never thought it could be made into a movie because a lot of the story is about periods and I wasn’t sure how that would come across on screen, but this looks good.

  7. God’s Chosen says:

    I really hope they do this justice this was one of my faves growing up. I remember checking it out from the library 😍Judy Blume has so many great books. I actually want to reread the book now at 42 going on 43 just for the nostalgia and child like innocence❤️

    • God’s Chosen says:

      @Jennifer Hansen yes I may need to grab a copy from somewhere and do the same before I watch the movie. I already put my husband on notice he’s watching it with me lol

    • Jennifer Hansen says:

      I hear you! I’m in my 40s and I just put it on hold on Libby! I definitely want to read it again before the movie comes out! 😉

  8. Mehgan Sapphire says:

    The nostalgia 🙌🏾 and when they said the infamous “We must, we must, we must increase our bust” 🤣 can’t wait for this

  9. Melissa Ziselman says:

    With everything going crazy in the world, it is such a true delight to see this wonderful book made into a movie. What a wonderful thing to look forward to. Cannot wait to see this!
