Superb News: Three Hours And Six Minute Director’s Cut Of Margaret Coming Soon

We waited long enough for Margaret to get any kind of release. Originally filmed in 2006, the film was long delayed by a post production process that saw director Kenneth Lonergan trying, somehow, to find a cut that satisfied both his intentions, and Fox Searchlight’s mandate that the film run no more than two and a half hours.

The film that played in cinemas late last year was approved by Lonergan, but felt both a little over-paced in places and also a little choppily edited in others. Despite it being amongst the best of 2011’s releases, the release was shrouded in a sadness that Lonergan had not experienced a natural birth, that the scissors had come into play.

But now we will get what we should have gotten in the first place. Fox Searchlight have announced that the film will be released in a 186 minute directors cut this July. The DVD and Blu-ray will be an Amazon exclusive, at least to begin with. What supplements might be included are yet to be revealed, unless you count the theatrical edit as a bonus.

I’ll use this new release as an excuse to tell you a heartening anecdote about cinema and movie loves. I’m too giddy to parse it properly now, but I’ll share it by the time the disc is with us. Bring a tear to your eye, it will.

Here’s the trailer for the film:
