CHECK OUT THE TRAILER FOR 'ARE YOU THERE GOD? IT'S ME, MARGARET'
One of Judy Blume's most celebrated novels is finally getting the movie treatment.
Lionsgate released the first trailer for 'Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret', an adaptation of author Blume's celebrated 1970 novel of the same name, starring Abby Ryder Fortson as the titular 11-year-old, with Rachel McAdams as Margaret's mom Barbara and Kathy Bates as Margaret's grandmother Sylvia.
The film is written and directed by Kelly Fremon Craig, who made 2016's The Edge of Seventeen. It also stars Elle Graham and Benny Safdie.
Following the plot of the book published in 1970 and the keystone of Blume’s iconic YA catalog, the pic centers on 11-year-old Margaret (Abby Ryder Fortson), who 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.
Alongside for the ride is her mom Barbara (Rachel McAdams), who is also struggling to adjust to life outside the big city, and her grandmother Sylvia (Kathy Bates), who isn’t happy they moved away.
'Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret' is in theaters April 28.
