Margaret DVD Review

Anna Paquin, Mark Ruffalo, Matt Damon and Matthew Broderick Impress in Writer/Director Kenneth Lonegran’s Masterful Portrait of a Young Woman’s Haunting Coming-of-Age Story on Blu-ray Combo Pack July 10

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment today announced that MARGARET, the long awaited follow up to two-time Academy Award nominee Kenneth Lonergan’s critically acclaimed debut feature You Can Count on Me, will release on Blu-ray combo pack July 10.  Available exclusively at Amazon for a limited time, the two-disc Blu-ray set includes the theatrical version as well as a bonus DVD featuring the never-before-seen extended cut. 


 

Hailed as “one of the decade's cinematic wonders” (Richard Brody, The New Yorker) and named “one of the best films of the year” (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times), MARGARET is “ambitious, affecting, unwieldy and haunting” (Ann Hornaday, Washington Post) and features complex performances from a powerhouse cast including Anna Paquin, as the film’s eponymous heroine (TV’s “True Blood”), Mark Ruffalo (The Kids are Alright), Matt Damon (We Bought a Zoo, Invictus), and Matthew Broderick (Wonderful World).

Synopsis: From Academy Award nominated writer/director Kenneth Lonergan (You Can Count On Me) comes a stirring drama Rolling Stone calls “a film of rare beauty and shocking gravity.” Anna Paquin, Matt Damon and Mark Ruffalo lead a celebrated cast in the story of a Manhattan teenager whose life is profoundly altered after witnessing a terrible accident. Experience an emotional teen’s extraordinary journey to set things right as her innocent ideals come crashing against the harsh realities of the adult world. It’s an “extraordinarily ambitious film,” raves Time Magazine. 

 I, like most people watching television these days, love a good dose of prime time drama to get in touch with the emotional side of myself. So when I had the opportunity to review this film, I was excited. I remember seeing advertisements to this film, and have been looking forward to watching it.

The plot focuses on Lisa and a disaster. She is a bratty teenaged daughter of divorced parents. There isn’t much that I found appealing about her character, but that made it more entertaining somehow, as the plot unfolded.

This movie is a long drama with many confrontations, explanations, and painful revelations of sorrow. But it pulls these things off in spades, and it’s been a while since I have seen a movie like this, that I have liked this much. I guess what I’m trying to say is I recommend you check out this movie.
