Let's start with the 10 best movies of 2012. (Capsules by Robert Horton)"Margaret."
This one opened (barely) in a few cities in 2011, but didn't arrive locally until January. Kenneth Lonergan's amazing movie about a teenage girl (Anna Paquin) faced with a serious ethical dilemma and all the other issues of growing up, a character so difficult and raw and exasperating that you may just recognize yourself in her. (The DVD has a longer cut of the movie sanctioned by the filmmaker.) [Review]
