Spotting one on bus driver Maretti's head but failing to board, she stubbornly runs along and keeps claiming his confused attention, until the bus hits a blind senior, who is wounded fatally The NYPD quickly closes the case as an accident, but Lisa, duly consumed by guilt and spared any charge, starts bothering everyone and making a mean pest of herself, not only at home, as self-absorbed actress mother may deserve, but also in the precinct, tracking down the victim's uninterested kin out of town and even Maretti at home.
A family friend lawyer gets involved in the case, digging in to compromising circumstances and causing real trouble to people who were of the hook.
Written by KGF Vissers. The travails involved in getting this movie released at all are well enough known by now that the fact that it is a flawed masterpiece shouldn't come as a surprise.
Above all, it is a masterclass in how to write dialogue. Virtually every character is given a credible and compelling voice, from the bus driver to the lawyer, from the mother's suitor to Lisa's "boyfriend".
As the father of a daughter, now in her early 20's, I can say that Lisa Cohen's character is as realistic a portrayal of the insecurities and self-righteousness of female adolescence as I have seen.
All aspiring screenwriters should be forced to watch this movie and then be given a 3-hour oral and written exam before being allowed to put pen to paper or finger to keyboard.
The acting is also superb. The feel is more of a stage play, an ensemble piece, than a film. Perhaps the fact that one of the characters - Lisa's mother - is a stage actress struggling to support her daughter is partially responsible.
But you can tell that this team of seasoned actors relished the opportunity to stretch out with an intelligent well-written script and a supportive director.
The only flaw in Margaret has already been well expressed by others. The film does meander and, while I recognize that this is partly the point of the exercise, there are times at which you long for a more conventional, and taut, storyline.
I would gladly have spent more time in the company of these well-drawn, articulate and interesting people. Maybe next time HBO wants to do a miniseries it will let Kenneth Lonergan loose on a story rather than subject us to another preachy, wordy effort from Aaron Sorkin.

Director: Kenneth Lonergan. Writer: Kenneth Lonergan. She was invited to be the George A. Mike Hepworth, the late British cultural gerontologist — , in a review of Gullette's work through , calls her "one of America's foremost critics of the concept of ageing as a universal and comprehensive process of decline.
She is a formidable critic of biological essentialism, defender of social constructionism , and opponent of 'middle ageism'" Hepworth , Abstract , and the author of an "increasingly influential range of publications on the social construction of ageing" Hepworth , and the life course in the United States.
Gullette emerged during the s and beyond as "the primary theorist and practitioner of what she called 'age studies'" Cole and Ray , Gullette named the field of "age studies" in Gullette , 45— The term is used by the Modern Language Association and in the humanities in preference to "aging studies.
What she means is that much of what we experience as we get older is not the ineluctable consequence of biological ageing.
American society, she contends, has become a rich terrain on which the social and cultural exclusion of people as they age can take place and where the ideology of ageing can flourish" Tulle Age studies tries to understand age and aging as complex, intersectional social and psychological constructions, and also as a set of mediated relationships among people located at different phases of the life course.
Gullette has said that she offers a radical social constructionism that pushes "'the natural' out of context after context" Gullette n As a result, their work has been criticised by those who see it as endorsing a false dualism of the body and the self.
Although this 'decline ideology' might seem to work against the futurist assumption of redemptive hope, Gullette explains that we are trained to assume the decline of the old in order to make room for the more highly valued young.
To counter this tendency, Gullette urges the proliferation of 'progress narratives,' which project 'a moving image of the self through its past and onward to its better future' Port , 5—6 One of her theoretical moves has been to undermine the binary between "progress narrative," automatically applied to children and younger people; and "decline narrative," automatically applied to people who have aged past midlife.
Gullette's term "age autobiography" is a call for individual authors to write more knowledgeably and critically about the mediated forces that insinuate themselves into our sense of "aging.
The "master narrative of decline" requires a single self going through a linear trajectory, while "the portmanteau self" is "an active concept of aging as self narrated experience, the conscious, ongoing story of one's age identity" Gullette Fragments of Gullette's own age autobiography appear in many of her nonfiction works.
Cynthia Port singles out "one powerful essay [in which] Gullette argues that the fashion system teaches us to detach ourselves from and then discard clothes and other no longer fashionable commodities as a means of training ourselves for our own obsolescence in old age": "The Other End of the Fashion Cycle: Practicing Loss, Learning Decline" Port , n Gullette has been called "one of gerontology's few public intellectuals," who demonstrates "how a scholar works to change the minds of general readers about aging and ageism" Ray and Cole 8.
Convinced that our terminology about age is impoverished, she encourages the use of terms like "aging-past-youth," aging-into-the-middle years," and "aging-into-old age" Gullette , 3— She argues in several books , , that collective sociopolitical changes are necessary.
Staging Age , edited by Valerie Barnes Lipscomb and Leni Marshall, gives credit to Gullette's work in establishing the field of age studies, and advancing concepts about how age can be considered a performance Lipscomb and Marshall , 1—3.
She invented the term "middle ageism" Gullette , 3—44 to name the cluster of discriminations suffered by people in their middle years, from job discrimination to "Boomer-bashing" and decline discourse about sexuality, looks, and intellectual and cognitive competence.
Other concepts developed by Gullette—such as "age ideology," "being aged by culture," and the use of "progress narrative" as a way out of the binary between "positive aging" and "decline narrative"—have been adopted by scholars in a range of disciplines.
Gullette's concepts and formulations have been disseminated through a number of chapters and essays or excerpts that have appeared in anthologies, including A Guide to Humanistic Studies in Aging , Narratives of Life: Mediating Age Munich , Opposing Viewpoints: The Aging Population , Sociology: Exploring the Architecture of Everyday Life.
Working as a freelance writer in parallel to her scholarly career, Gullette also publishes in mainstream, feminist, and progressive newspapers, magazines, and blogs.
Gullette's chapter, 'Overcoming the Terror of Forgetfulness,' in Agewise was called "the best essay on memory loss that I have read.
Based partly on the author's experiences with her mother, it reveals her deep compassion and insight" Cruikshank , Declining to Decline: Cultural Combat and the Politics of the Midlife won the Emily Toth award in for the best feminist book on American popular culture.

She may have inherited drama-queen tendencies from her mother Joan J Smith-Cameron , a Broadway stage star, with whom she lives in New York.
One day, after an encounter of pouting defiance with her exasperated mathematics teacher Matt Damon , Lisa takes it into her head to buy a cowboy hat.
She sees a bus driver wearing one she likes: he is played by Mark Ruffalo. With a teenager's heedless disregard for the consequences, she flirtatiously runs alongside his bus, waving wildly, asking where he got it.
He smiles back at her, taking his eyes off the road — with terrible results. Lisa is overwhelmed with ambiguous emotion at having contributed to a disaster and then participated in a coverup, and, compulsively driven to do something, draws everyone into a whirlpool of painful and destructive confrontations.
But is that emotion guilt or righteousness? Or a sociopathic convulsion, a need to create a huge redemptive drama with herself at the centre, to lash out against her mother and the entire adult world; or to enact vengeance against a man who, without trying, has placed her in a position of weakness — at the very point at which she considers she should be attaining her adult, queen-bee status?
Paquin creates that rarest of things: a profoundly unsympathetic character who is mysteriously, mesmerically, operatically compelling to watch.

Carlos M Super Reviewer. Jun 17, Hard-hitting and emotionally haranguing, this absorbing, perceptive drama provides plenty of deep thought with a real understanding of the differences between the teenage and adult worlds.
Margaret isn't the name of anyone in the movie, it's a character in a poem who laments for her younger self's ability to care about the world in a more urgent manner.
Margaret's attitude is reflected in one of the movie's major themes as high schooler Lisa Anna Paquin feels responsible for a bus accident that killed a pedestrian.
Furthermore, she believes the bus driver is at least equally culpable and who does not demonstrate remorse to her satisfaction, so she takes it upon herself to force him to accept responsibility.
I could write a term paper about this movie, and at nearly 3 hours there is plenty of material. With the many hysterical outbursts it's probably a difficult film for a lot of people to enjoy but I was rapt in the characters and story.
Credit goes to an outstanding cast - I was only interested in the first place because of Paquin, and she in mostly commanding in a thoroughly draining role - and exceptional writing with an ear for dialogue that captures how people really talk and think.
Another theme is perception, and how different viewpoints can come to opposite conclusions with the same information, whether due to generational or cultural or any number of other gaps.
New York is also given time to inhabit the screen and leave an indelible mark as a character, although I could have done with fewer camera pans of buildings.
The law takes an important part in the story and the movie examines the complicated issues the way great lawsuit movies like 'Erin Brockovich' do, on a ground level during conversations over coffee that everyone can understand instead of during boring courtroom speeches.
The complications are fascinatingly distasteful. For instance, if the woman had survived for several days before dying, that would have increased the call for damages significantly.
On the other hand, she was consciously clinging to life for several minutes, which calls for a greater monetary reward than someone killed outright.
The bulk of the time is spent with Lisa trying to come to terms with what she thinks she's done. She drifts away from her best friends at school and mother, a concerned but neurotic and neglectful stage actress, and spends more time with her math teacher and the victim's best friend.
Her cement mixer of emotions also leads her to her first sexual experience in a starkly tender scene of nervousness and anticipation.
That was unexpected, which is a big part of what I admired about this film: it continuously strives to find unconventional footing in scene setups that are very familiar and yet the outcomes are very organic.
Not everything works, particularly the direction she takes with her math teacher played by Matt Damon didn't jibe. As she experiences this rapid growth cycle, she eventually finds her way back to her innate connection with her mother.
Doctor S Super Reviewer. Mar 05, This is a movie I wanted to see for ages. I even tried to track a dvd copy down, but I could never find it at a reasonable price.
My thoughts after finally getting to see it on TV? Thank goodness I never actually purchased it! Don't get me wrong, acting is good. Story is interesting, but it's sooo long, and Anna's character is a brat I couldn't stand.
When she starts rallying to get the bus driver sacked over the accident she caused, I knew I just couldn't with her character.
She's always yelling too, just wanted to slap the little madam. So, yes, ambitious and well made little movie, but definitely not one to rewatch.
For me, anyhow. Nicki M Super Reviewer. Jan 15, Margaret is an excellent film. The director has tackled a gritty and challenging subject with an exquisite eye to detail.
The performances by Anna Paquin and J. Smith-Cameron are superb. There are some flaws such as minor story lines that seem to have no purpose or simply vanish, but those flaws are not enough to detract from the impact of the drama.
For those who are not willing to wallow in the drama and who don't relish fine performances, Margaret will undoubtedly seem slow and uninteresting.
However, for those who are willing and do so relish I watched the extended edition at more than 3 hrs. Christian C Super Reviewer. See all Audience reviews.
