  1. MARGARET
  1. 2011, Kenneth Lonergan, USA, 150 min.
  2. With Anna Paquin, Mark Ruffalo

"Best Film of 2011."
—Ben Kenigsberg, Time Out Chicago

"Top American Film, Top Actress of 2011."
—Ray Pride, Newcity

“A triumph...the sort of ambitious American storytelling you find too rarely at the movies."
—Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune

Filmed in 2005, delayed by a messy dispute between writer-director Lonergan (YOU CAN COUNT ON ME) and the studio, and then barely released, MARGARET has become a cause célèbre for critics who consider it the most overlooked (and, in several cases, the best) film of 2011. A 17-year-old girl's ambiguous implication in a fatal bus accident is the catalyst for a coming-of-age story that broadens into a vivid canvas of the mixed-up mood of post-9/11 Manhattan. A sensational lead performance by Paquin tops a superb cast that includes Mark Ruffalo, Matt Damon, Matthew Broderick, Jean Reno, J. Smith-Cameron, Jeannie Berlin, Allison Janney, and Kieran Culkin. 35mm. (MR)
