Margaret, for all its flaws, is a film of rare beauty and shocking gravity. show more
Besides Paquin, who delivers a once-in-a-lifetime performance as the maddeningly inconsistent Lisa, also wrenchingly fine are Jeannie Berlin as the best friend of the deceased and J. Smith-Cameron as Lisa's actress mother. show more
Fine performances and bristling language compel in this overlong, often off-putting but well-observed New York story. show more
Fantastic movie...fantastic script....loved it. Also New York City plays as another character of the movie...Great acting too. Anna has matured as a great actress...Kudos to her and everyone involved in this complex movie...
I enjoyed it though it was a bit long. Great acting kept my attention throughout.
In the version we saw today, I think there is a good movie in there somewhere, and a couple interesting performances. But this version seemed to need some really good editing. Apparently it had been edited down to 150 minutes (?! there was more?)...however, so much more could\'ve been sacrificed to make a much tighter story. And so many really good actors were wasted in very small roles. So many scenes meant nothing. On writing this I just decided to take my \"vote\" down from 3 stars to 2.
