Nate & Margaret

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Nate is an aspiring film student on a journey of self-discovery. Margaret is kind of going through the same thing except she’s in her fifties and wants to be a stand-up comic. They are best friends and support each other through thick and thin. When Nate meets James and falls in love for the first time, their friendship is put to the test as Margaret struggles to deal with the idea that her best friend has found someone new in his life. Nate and Margaret is a sweet and fragile film about friendship, love and the idea that you’re never too young or too old to find out who you really are. Co-writtern and directed by Nathan Adloff, Nate & Margaret might be familiar to lucky SHOUT audiences who saw it as the 2011 “Super Secret Screening” at the festival; since, it has gone on to great acclaim, including a theatrical run in New York City. Roger Ebert called it, “a sweet, delicate story about friendship” and gave it a positive recommendation. The film stars Natalie West (“Roseanne”), Tyler Ross (The Wise Kids), Conor McCahill and Gaby Hoffman (Now and Then). On a personal note, I especially appreciate the way the film treats the gay characters and doesn’t turn their homosexuality into any kind of issue or event – it’s just something that they are. Trust us on this one:  if you like movies, you’re going to love Nate and Margaret.
