“Are you there, God? It’s Me, Margaret: A Film About Girlhood, Growing Up and Religious Search

  • Forbes Woman

Still from the film “Are You Here, God? It’s me, Margaret” (Photo by DR) The movie “Are You There, God? It’s Me, Margaret» is an adaptation of the novel of the same name by American writer Judy Bloom. In the center of the plot is an 11-year-old girl who discovers herself through religion. In addition to the classic problems of puberty, the filmmakers talk about the crisis of Christianity, which often becomes a stumbling block in the upbringing of American teenagers. Film critic Olya Smolina explains why “Are you here, God? It’s me, Margaret» — more of a dive into the era than a coming of age movie

It’s hard to believe that the famous novel by the writer Judy Bloom, published back in 1970, could only now reach the big screens. In due time, “Are you there, God? It’s Me, Margaret» was considered an extremely bold and even frank work: the author of the book asked young readers uncomfortable questions about God, raised the topics of menstruation and hormonal adjustment, and in places criticized conservative American upbringing. It is not surprising that some time after the start of sales, the book disappeared from school libraries and, in general, was devoted to a kind of anathema. Despite the sexual revolution 19In the 1960s, the still puritanical America of the 1980s (during the time of Conservative President Ronald Reagan) was not ready to have intimate conversations about soul and body with teenagers. Luckily, a few years later, “Are you there, God? It’s Me, Margaret» reappeared on the shelves of bookstores, and in 2010 it even made it to the top 100 best novels for teenagers according to Time magazine.

Nevertheless, for 49 years, Judy Bloom turned down any proposal for a film adaptation of her work. Only Kelly Fremont, director of the teen comedy Nearly Seventeen, starring Hailee Steinfeld, was able to touch the writer’s heart. Released in late 2016, the film also told the story of a teenager. In the story, a high school student is trying to cope with a crisis in the family and the first school love. Nearly Seventeen, which was Frémont’s directorial debut, is an example of the coming-of-age genre, a film about growing up. He stood out from other similar films due to witty dialogues and the charisma of the main character. Apparently, Bloom, like Western critics, was imbued with Frémont’s first work and, as a result, that is why she sold her the film rights to her book.

“Almost seventeen” and “Are you there God? It’s me, Margaret» is related only to the genre. Otherwise, the pictures turned out to be completely different — to match the age period and the spirit of the times that influenced the heroines. 11-year-old Margaret (Abby Ryder Fortson) comes from a multi-religious family: her mother (Rachel McAdams) is a Christian and her father (Rough Diamonds director Benny Sefdie) is Jewish. And since the film takes place in the 1970s in the state of New Jersey, which is considered the center of ethnic and religious diversity, the situation in Margaret’s house periodically begins to heat up. The situation finally gets out of hand when the girl decides that the time has come for religious self-determination: she attends both the synagogue and the Catholic Church.

Every evening Margaret turns to God in a kind of prayer, childishly naive talking about cherished dreams, little secrets and heartfelt experiences. Like all girls her age, Margaret worries about the attention of boys, breasts that «do not grow at all», as well as the onset of menstruation, and with it — the long-awaited adulthood. In the second half of the last century (when the book was written), the stages of development of the female body were not discussed as openly as they are today, the issues of sex, menstruation and early pregnancy were completely tabooed. The younger generation drew information from a variety of sources: at best, they were boring educational films, at worst, Playboy magazines from my father’s collection. As a result, some issues of growing up were overgrown with strange and sometimes funny hoaxes: for example, girls in the film increase their breasts with the help of affirmations. However, some things have not changed so far: secret clubs, girls’ conversations, spin the bottle — all this is also becoming an integral part of Margaret’s life.

Alone in “Are You There, God? It’s me, Margaret» is a conflict in the family associated with religious prejudice. Margaret’s mother’s parents, staunch Christians, were against her marrying a Jew. And although the main character’s parents, belonging to different faiths, make the difficult decision not to discuss God in the process of her upbringing, the grandparents do everything possible to win the granddaughter over to their side. However, Margaret behaves like a typical teenager — she consciously distances herself from religion, perceiving it as something negative, creating tension and discomfort among her relatives. Her conversations with God are more like reflection: in an attempt to find answers to pressing questions, Margaret, in fact, turns to herself — a person who has just begun to form an individual voice. In her life paradigm, the concept of «God» loses its religious context, transforming into what is usually called «super-ego» in psychoanalysis, which is responsible for a person’s moral attitudes, his norms, ideals and conscience.

Visually, the film captures the aesthetics of the 1970s, from the soundtrack to the costumes, to the detailed streets and color reproduction. And there is charm in that. However, for all its merits as a coming-of-age film, Are You There God? It’s me, Margaret» works poorly: following the trodden paths of the genre, director Kelly Fremont does not offer anything new to the modern audience. The topics of hormonal changes are undeniably important, however, in principle, every second film in a genre that was largely created and popularized in culture for a friendly dialogue with a teenage audience that is not always able to open up to adults can boast of such theses.
