Margaret Trailer Starring Anna Paquin, Matt Damon

Margaret Trailer: Anna Paquin Is Hot For Teacher Matt Damon

The Margaret trailer takes us back to 2005, the year the movie was filmed and its star Anna Paquin was still young enough to play a 17-year-old high school student. After many delays, we're finally seeing the first footage of the Kenneth Lonergan film in which Paquin plays the emotionally torn title character, who battles feelings of guilt after a tragic bus accident leaves a woman dead.

Believing she is partly responsible for the death, Margaret begins to spiral out of control as she attempts to deal with her emotions. As if that isn't bad enough, the bus driver (Mark Ruffalo) gives her a tough time about her desire to come forward with the truth behind what really happened the day of the accident. She begins to crumble in some predictable ways, like letting her grades slip and pushing her family away, as well as some not so predictable ways, like an affair with her teacher, played by Matt Damon. Paquin seems to handle Margaret's dark, emotional journey beautifully, and I'm eager to see her on the big screen again and playing someone besides Sookie Stackhouse. Have a look for yourself before the film hits theaters on Sept. 30 when you

Just realized the woman that plays Anna's mother in this movie play's Sam Merlotte and Tommy Micken's mother on True Blood.

I'm interested in seeing it. Then again, I would not actually go to the movies to see it.

Woah, Anna does look really young. I think the plot is quite predictable and I wouldn't go and see it, but it still looks like a good film!

Whoa. Both Matt and Anna look so young. I have no interest in the movie (it looks predictable) but Matt is so adorable looking here that I have to watch it...on Netflix. With a 6 year delay I'm expecting this movie to be crappy.
