About the film: 

The beloved and best-selling 1970 novel by Judy Blume comes to the big screen! This timeless, coming-of-age story has transcended decades and spoken to generations.

At 11, Margaret is moving to a new town and beginning to contemplate everything about life, friendship, and adolescence. She relies on her mother, who offers loving support but is herself finding her own footing in a new place, and her grandmother Sylvia, who is coming to terms with finding happiness in the next phase of her life. For all three, questions of identity, one’s place in the world, and what brings meaning to a life will draw them closer together than ever before.
