A CLOSER LOOK AT ‘MARGARET’ WITH ANNA PAQUIN & KENNETH LONERGAN
#TeamMargaret invaded Film Independent at LACMA last week when we screened the extended cut of Kenneth Lonergan’s Margaret, the long-awaited follow up to his Academy Award–nominated debut You Can Count on Me. Both Lonergan and star Anna Paquin were on hand to chat with Elvis Mitchell after the screening:
An indelible coming-of-age story, Margaret centers on a teenage girl (Anna Paquin) who witnesses—and maybe causes—the death of a pedestrian hit by a bus in a busy Manhattan intersection. Featuring rich, complex performances from a powerhouse cast that includes Mark Ruffalo, Matt Damon and Matthew Broderick, the film became a cause célèbre with critics and audiences when it was released in late 2011. Check out these glowing reviews to find out why, or rent the film and see for yourself.
