Margaret review

Slow paced character driven drama that has an intellectual script is worth based on its moral lessons and the amazing acting of Anna Paquin coupled with some big name supporting cast. Lisa Cohen (Anna Paquin) searches for a cowboy hat for her trip with her family. She notices a bus driver named Jason Berstone (Mark Ruffalo) who was wearing one, and accidentally kills a pedestrian.

Anna Paquin was exceptional and authentic. Camera angles were detailed and screenplay clever. Score was operatic and plot realistic. Only qualms this reviewer had was how unlikable the lead character was and a few extended scenes ...

Smith-Camerson), would stay home to look after her but Lisa tells her that she is okay, leaving Joan to meet a handsome stranger(Jean Reno) after her performance on stage is over. On the one hand, "Margaret" is long and not without its share of flaws such as being ind...
