"Margaret"

Primary tabs

(Jan. 6, 7 & 17) — Casting a novelistic eye for his second film, Oscar-winning director/screenwriter Kenneth Lonergan ("Manchester by the Sea") elicited a stunning performance from Anna Paquin as Upper West Side teen Lisa Cohen, whose crises of conscience and identity reverberate through her actress mother (J. Smith-Cameron) and post-9/11 NYC itself. Shot in 2005, editing-room conflicts led to a minimal 2011 release of one cut; Lonergan’s preferred cut, 36 minutes longer, deepens perspective on other characters and crucially reveals a shared mother/daughter experience. With Jeannie Berlin, Jean Reno, Matt Damon, Mark Ruffalo and Kieran Culkin.

"A big-time masterwork, one of the major American cinematic achievements of recent years and one of the greatest New York-centric films ever made." — The New Yorker
