A critically-acclaimed ode to adolescence, directed by Greta Gerwig.
Dir Greta Gerwig
With Saoirse Ronan, Laurie Metcalfe, Beanie Feldstein, Lucas Hedges
A Universal Pictures release
Christine ‘Lady Bird’ McPherson (Ronan) is eager to get out of Sacramento, get away from her overbearing mother, and go ‘where culture is.’ Intense and overdramatic, Lady Bird is on a path of self-discovery, trying out friendships and boyfriends while trying to balance her relationship with her mother (an excellent Metcalf) and her best friend Julie (Feldstein). Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut (after co-writing Frances Ha and Mistress America) is an assured and poignant love letter to growing up, finding your voice and remaining faithful to oneself.
