Margaret (2011)

17-year-old Manhattan student Lisa Cohen (Anna Paquin), while shopping on the Upper West Side, distracts a bus driver, Jason Berstone (Mark Ruffalo), leading to a fatal accident in which a pedestrian is run over and dies in Lisa's arms. In collaboration with the victim's best friend and cousin, Lisa ultimately becomes involved in a lawsuit against the driver. Meanwhile, Lisa flirts with her math teacher, Aaron Caije (Matt Damon) and argues about politics and terrorism with her classmates.
