Anna Paquin Haunted by Guilt in First 'Margaret' Trailer

The film, which release has been delayed for six years, features Paquin's Lisa Cohen whose life is changed after witnessing an accident that claims a woman's life.

Fox Searchlight Pictures finally released a first trailer for "Margaret" after the film was put on the shelf for nearly six years. Unleashed via Apple, the video follows Anna Paquin's Lisa Cohen who has a bad day that she will never forget for the rest of her life.

In the movie, Cohen, who is a 17-year-old New York City high school student, feels guilty after watching 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, Cohen begins emotionally brutalizing her family, her friends, her teacher, 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.

Along with the fresh trailer, the studio also unveiled a first poster of the movie. The one-sheet presents the female lead character in blurry shot, walking alone on the street.

Kenneth Lonergan-directed movie after his 2000's film "You Can Count on Me", "Margaret" was originally scheduled to be released in 2007. However, in 2009, the movie was deemed "unreleasable" following the lawsuit involving Lonergan for not completing the editing process due to financial issues.

Along with Paquin, several notable stars who join the cast ensemble are including Matt Damon, Mark Ruffalo and Matthew Broderick. Additionally, J. Smith-Cameron, Jean Reno, Olivia Thirlby as well as Kieran Culkin are also supporting the movie. It is due to arrive in limited U.S. theaters on September 30.
