The Next Best Picture Podcast – Interview With “Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret.” Director/Writer Kelly Fremon Craig

After wowing audiences with her feature directorial debut “The Edge Of Seventeen” in 2016, writer/director Kelly Fremon Craig turned her eye toward Judy Blume’s influential coming-of-age book and adapted it into the critically beloved “Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret.” The film had its world premiere in Los Angeles in April and has been picking up several wins throughout this awards season, including most recently, Best Supporting Performance from the Los Angeles Film Critics Association for Rachel McAdams, Gotham and Critics Choice Award nominations for Best Adapted Screenplay for Kelly Fremon Craig and a Best Young Actress nomination for Abby Fortson Ryder from the Critics Choice Awards. Kelly was kind enough to spend a few minutes talking with us about her work on the film, what it has meant to her, the enduring legacy of the 1970 novel, and more. Please be sure to check out the film, which is up for your consideration in all eligible categories at the 96th Academy Awards. Thank you, and enjoy!
