Margaret: a film by Kenneth Lonergan

Quite simply, this was the most powerful movie I’ve seen in a long, long time. It altered my mood for a full two weeks after watching. Margaret is the second feature written and directed by Kenneth Lonergan (writer/director of You Can Count on Me, and a prominent playwright and screenwriter).

Featuring Anna Paquin, Mark Ruffalo, Matt Damon, and Allison Janney (who gives such a heart-stopping performance in only a single, early scene that her character’s presence is palpably felt for the entire film), Margaret is a forceful, elegant, beautiful, and at times extremely shocking meditation on tragedy, or more accurately, on the things that happen to/upon us and the ways in which we do or cannot reconcile them into a functioning notion and practice of existence.
