DIRECTOR Greta Gerwig
CAST Saoirse Ronan, Laurie Metcalf, Tracy Letts, Timothée Chalamet
Saoirse Ronan gives a sublime performance as a teenage girl dreaming of a big-city future in this touching and hilarious drama from first time writer/director Greta Gerwig.
Christine (Saoirse Ronan), who calls herself Lady Bird, is an ambitious, bright and precocious high-school senior. Longing to break free from suburban Sacramento, she dreams of a different life full of East Coast skyscrapers, Ivy League universities and cosmopolitan culture, all of which her abrasive, eminently practical mother, Marion (Laurie Metcalf), frequently deflates. Incredibly personal and immensely relatable, Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut is sure to be one of the defining coming-of-age films of its generation.
(2017 USA 94 mins)
In her glorious first film as writer-director, Greta Gerwig creates a coming-of-age story that is wry, funny and touchingly real. And the character of Lady Bird, played with naturalness and precision by Saoirse Ronan, is a perfect reflection of Gerwig’s creative voice … Lady Bird may sound slight, but it offers an eloquent, fresh voice from a thoroughly accomplished film-maker.
