In Greta Gerwig’s solo directorial debut, headstrong seventeen year-old Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) comes of age in a Sacramento Catholic high school in the early 2000s. A rich portrait of a mother-daughter relationship in the midst of awkward sexual encounters, agonizing college applications, embarrassing forays into musical theatre, and everything else that comes along with high school, Lady Bird is an extremely well-acted, authentic, affectionate, and funny look at the relationships and places that define our youth. “A joy from start to finish, a warm, generous snapshot of teenage vulnerability and exuberance.” (Village Voice)
Golden Globe Winner of Best Motion Picture Comedy and Best Actress (Comedy) for Saoirse Ronan.
