The trailer and poster for Kenneth Lonergan’s Margaret have gone online. The long-awaited and long-delayed follow-up to Lonergan’s You Can Count on Me, Lonergan centers on a high school student (Anna Paquin) who discovers that watching Alison Janney get hit by a bus will really throw you for a loop. There’s definitely going to be a tough balance here between hitting honest emotions of a teenager who witnesses and feels responsible for a tragedy and going too melodramatic. Hopefully Lonergan and his excellent cast, which also includes Mark Ruffalo and Matt Damon, can keep the story grounded.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer and poster. The film also stars J. Smith-Cameron, Jean Reno, Jeannie Berlin, and Matthew Broderick. Margaret opens September 30th.
