Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A triumph . . . the sort of ambitious American storytelling you find too rarely at the movies."-Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune

Academy Award® nominated writer and director Kenneth Lonergan has written a stirring drama that was called "extraordinarily ambitious" by Time and "a film of rare beauty and shocking gravity" by Rolling Stone. Delayed for 4 years in post-production, the film was finally released in 2011, with a director's cut following on DVD in 2012. Our edition will include the scripts of the full director's cut, along with an introduction and key tie-in art.

Margaret is the story of a Manhattan teenager whose life is profoundly altered after witnessing a terrible accident. It is the extraordinary journey of an emotional teen who abides by her moral code and wants to set things right, but whose innocent ideals come crashing against the harsh realities of the adult world. It is a story of youth, love, the consequences of mistakes, and the fundamental questions of morality as faced by a teenager in an extraordinary situation.

About the Author

Kenneth Lonergan is the author of This Is Our Youth, selected as one of Time's ten best plays of 1998. In addition he was nominated for a Drama Desk Best Play Award and received Encore magazine's Taking Off Award. The Waverly Gallery was nominated for the John Gassner Playwriting Award. His screenwriting credits include Analyze This, The Lost Army.
