Margaret Poem Will Suck You In Just In Time For The Home Release

Coming your way on July 10th is a sleeper of a film that took the critical world by storm. Despite the big names and the rave reviews, it flew under everyone’s radar, and for whatever reason, didn’t get a lot of exposure. Apart from having big, and even hot, names involved, it is the next movie by Keith Lonergan, director of one of my all-time favorites, You Can Count On Me.

Margaret, despite what you’d assume, doesn’t have a character named Margaret, but is instead titled after a poem. Check that poem out below, and don’t let this slip past you again.

Make sure you catch the interactive elements.

 

Hailed as “one of the decade’s cinematic wonders” (Richard Brody, The New Yorker) and named “one of the best films of the year” (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times), MARGARET is “ambitious, affecting, unwieldy and haunting” (Ann Hornaday, Washington Post) and features complex performances from a powerhouse cast including Anna Paquin, as the film’s eponymous heroine (TV’s “True Blood”), Mark Ruffalo (The Kids are Alright), Matt Damon (We Bought a Zoo, Invictus), and Matthew Broderick (Wonderful World).

From Academy Award® nominated* writer/director Kenneth Lonergan (You Can Count On Me) comes a stirring drama Rolling Stone calls “a film of rare beauty and shocking gravity.” Anna Paquin, Matt Damon and Mark Ruffalo lead a celebrated cast in the story of a Manhattan teenager whose life is profoundly altered after witnessing a terrible accident. Experience an emotional teen’s extraordinary journey to set things right as her innocent ideals come crashing against the harsh realities of the adult world. It’s an “extraordinarily ambitious film,” raves Time Magazine.

Available exclusively at Amazon for a limited time, the two-disc Blu-ray set includes the theatrical version as well as a bonus DVD featuring the never-before-seen extended cut.
