Synopsis

It’s 1970 and 11-year-old Margaret finds her life turned upside down when she moves from the bright lights of New York City to the suburbs of New Jersey. Although she quickly finds a group of new friends, there are bigger things for Margaret to worry about; her Jewish father and Christian mother have left her to figure out what religion she belongs to, she misses her grandma and, most importantly, she hasn’t got her period yet and barely needs a bra. As the school year goes on, Margaret finds herself pulled in a million different directions when she doesn’t even seem to have a clear idea of who she really is. Based on the iconic American novel by Judy Blume, this coming-of-age story captures adolescent experiences with a hilarious, endearing and relatable perspective.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
