The Indie Favorite MARGARET Arrives on Blu-Ray July 10th!

High on my list of must see films, Margaret seemed to slip through my fingers last year. That is why I am excited to hear that the film will be coming to Blu-Ray on July 10th! Along with the theatrical version of the film, fans will receive never-before-seen extended cut of the film.  For more information about the Blu Ray release check out the press release below.

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.
