Story


"Margaret" centers on a 17-year-old New York City high-school student who feels certain that she inadvertently played a role in a traffic accident that has claimed a woman's life. In her attempts to set things right she meets with opposition at every step. Torn apart with frustration, she begins emotionally brutalizing her family, her friends, her teachers, and most of all, herself. She has been confronted quite unexpectedly with a basic truth: that her youthful ideals are on a collision course against the realities and compromises of the adult world.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..this is very much a movie about writing, and despite the sincerity of the dialogue, the style does not fit a cinematic format..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
“..its theme brought home by Berlin's character in a climactic argument..”
by Sheri Linden [Hollywood Reporter]
“..it would be easy to accept the drama's lumpy, lurching structure if these threads came together in an honest, insightful fashion..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
