Margaret (Directors Cut)

Kenneth Lonergan (2011)

Anna Paquin, Matt Damon, Mark Ruffalo Rated 15

(NB. there will be a 15 min intermission during the screening of this ‘extended cut’.) 

 

A young woman witnesses an accident, and is caught up in the aftermath, where the question of possible guilt affects many people’s lives.

LFC is proud to offer our audience an opportunity to see this very special film that preceded the Writer /Director Kenneth Lonergan’s huge success ‘Manchester By The Sea’ and which is equally spellbinding.

Originally conceived as a three-hour film and subsequently released in a heavily edited version, we are showing the ‘finished’ film.  The result is stunning; provocative and brilliant, with sheer energy and dramatic vehemence.

       Worth the effort!

“Ambitious, affecting, unwieldy and haunting, it’s an eccentric, densely atmospheric, morally hyper-aware masterpiece…”

“For all its awkwardness and uncertainty, the film is a city symphony, romantic yet scathing, lyrical with street life and vaulting skylines, reckless with first adventure…”
