    I hadn't realized Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret was a period piece (set in 1970-71), but it explained the number of ladies of a certain age in the audience providing a steady murmuring about their own coming of age in that era! Kelly Fremon Craig's Edge of Twelve, so to speak, is a charmer from top to bottom. Abby Ryder Fortson is great as a little girl on the cusp of teenagehood, but in a great hurry to grow up (though mostly to please a new friend who proves to be more immature and only play-acting what she imagines is maturity). As the title (of the book and film) suggests, Margaret also entertains a conversation with God throughout, as a narrative device, yes, but also an agnostic exploration of faith that isn't without some poignancy. Rachel McAdams' comic timing is unimpeachable and who doesn't love the parents in this (Benny Safdie is the dad)? Kathy Bates is, for her part, hilarious in the supporting role of the grandmother despondent over her family moving to the suburbs (which acts as a geographical transition connected to Margaret's physical/emotional one). Funny and well-observed, older viewers will like it as a walk down memory lane, but the themes are universal. 11 months 1 week ago
