Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Margaret comes apart at the seams as you watch it, but it gives off a lovely light. Seek it out. You can thank me later.
Fresh: For all its awkwardness and uncertainty, the film is a city symphony, romantic yet scathing, lyrical with street life and vaulting skylines, reckless with first adventure...
Fresh: An ambitious, novelistic, sprawling story that attempts to show a young woman's internal development while simultaneously conveying the soul of modern-day New York.
Rotten: Margaret is a mess. An impressive mess, but a mess nonetheless.
Kenneth Lonergan is gifted, compassionate and kind, with an ear for human dialogue. The film is messy but as messy as everyday life. The performances are real - the moment when Matthew Broderick is dumbfounded by one of his student"s responses to King Lear captures the confusing nature of human perception. For some reason that I can only intuit, this scene captures the essence of the film: human confusion. It"s simply awesome!
maybe the depth surpasses me...
the excellent reviews led me on - unfortunately, I found the movie had various lengths and a certain lack of focus. I understand the point in depicting a young woman unravel in the adult world, but I would have expected something more from the director - some sort of culmination that never happens.
Definitely worth the rent
Wow.. Just got finished watching this movie and all I can say is that it's amazing. Don't go in expecting a 5 star movie but it's so different like it feels more like real life than other movies. I really connected with the emotional issues concerning the family life. Definitely a favorite movie now. Loved it!
