Margaret trailer looks emotionally tough

Margaret.jpgThe trailer for Margaret starts the film off in one direction and very suddenly turns it in another. Starring Anna Paquin, Matt Damon, Mark Ruffalo and written and directed by Kenneth Lonergan, the film shows a young woman caught up in some hugely consequential dilemmas that threaten to overshadow her teenage life.

It's a rather powerful and interesting trailer, and more so for the stars involved in the film, Paquin has a good feature outing alongside Damon and Ruffalo, and it looks like it could turn into quite a strong film.

Here's the write up for Margaret:

Margaret centers on a 17-year-old New York City high-school student who feels certain that she inadvertently played a role in a traffic accident that has claimed a woman's life. In her attempts to set things right she meets with opposition at every step. Torn apart with frustration, she begins emotionally brutalizing her family, her friends, her teachers, and most of all, herself. She has been confronted quite unexpectedly with a basic truth: that her youthful ideals are on a collision course against the realities and compromises of the adult world.

The trailer is rather powerful and it's a good job as Anna Paquin really does need some strong roles and films to begin to shake off the True Blood character that she's become attached to and this film and character certainly look set to do just that.

You can see the trailer over at Apple Trailers, or right here:

Mind you a story about the end of innocence and her character being only seventeen might be hard to swallow for some, but she does manage to look the part, and she's a cracking actress. Standing next to Matt Damon and Mark Ruffalo shows that very point.
