Margaret (2011)

Directed by: Kenneth Lonergan
Country: USA

Plot: A young woman witnesses a bus accident. That fact will change her life.
Quick comment: 11 years after his fantastic debut with “You Can Count On Me”, Kenneth Lonergan returns to direction. “Margaret” depicts the trauma of a young girl, who felt responsible for the death of a woman ran over by a bus. The story is ok, especially in what concerns to family relationships, but often loses its track in its subplots, becoming a bit messy. Among a luxury cast, there was an admirable performance by Anna Paquin.
