Cherished author gets documentary

On March 8, Judy Blume’s new documentary Judy Blume Forever trailer premiered. Blume, no stranger to readers, is finally welcomed to Hollywood with open arms.  


“I grew up as a good girl with a bad girl lurking inside, so by the time I started to write I really had a lot to get out,” She  said in the trailer. “I could be fearless in my writing in a way that maybe I wasn’t always in my life.”


The documentary will tell the writer's life as she grows from a creative child to an unapologetic, fearless writer. The beloved author has explored candid subjects such as puberty and sex in her coming-of-age novels, including: “Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret,” Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing” and “Blubber.” 


Her honest approach to these topics hasn’t always been an easy feat due to the nature of her writing. After a long fight with censorship this year, her novels will hit the screen in 2023.


Blume has many adaptations in store this year, with a Are you there God film coming in April and Forever, one of Blume’s most controversial novels to this day for exploring virginity turning into a Netflix series.


“My daughter told me mother couldn’t you write a book about teenagers who fall in love and do it and nobody has to die and I thought yes.” said Blume in the trailer for her documentary Forever. 


Blume is a female author who encouraged young women to explore life and loves themselves as they are. She has helped readers by writing letters giving them heartfelt advice in dealing with coming-of-age topics that might be considered taboo while growing up. 


“Kids opened up to me in a way that they couldn’t to their parents and I would answer” said Blume.


The documentary will also include several major celebrities' distinct voices to show Blume’s writing’s impact on their life.


Molly Ringwald 80s movie starlet. Most known for appearing in John Hughes movies such as The Breakfast Club and Sixteen Candles. Said in the trailer for Blume’s documentary Forever.


“Everything I learned about sex or crushes I learned from Judy," 


Lena Dunham is a writer, director and producer. The experience is similar to Ringwald. Dunham said that Blume allowed young women to be as complicated, messy and funny as they wanted to be. 


Forever will premiere on Amazon Prime video on April 21.  The documentary will be directed by Davina Pardo and Leah Wolchok. 

Sara Bernstein, Justin Wilkes and Marcella Steingar will be producing.
