Kenneth Lonergan and J. Smith-Cameron the Film “Margaret”

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

Writer-director Kenneth Lonergan talks about his latest movie, “Margaret,” along with J. Smith-Cameron, who stars in the film. The story of self-involved teenager Lisa’s emotional turmoil after witnessing (and perhaps being in some way responsible for) the death of a pedestrian hit by a bus, “Margaret” was shot in 2005 and then spent years in the editing room. The film also stars Anna Paquin, Matt Damon, Matthew Broderick, Mark Ruffalo, and Jeannie Berlin. It opens at the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center on March 23.

J Smith-Cameron is currently appearing in "The Maids" at the Theater at St. Clement’s through April 1.

Look this film is classic in every way. Nothing like it I have ever seen and Anna Panquin's performance is the best I saw last year and I saw a ton of great films. Please share my comment
