Named Best Picture 2017 by New York Film Critics and Chicago Film Critics; Nominated for four Golden Globes 2017. So far 45 wins and 96 nominations in the awards season.
In Greta Gerwig’s bold directorial debut, high school senior Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) is bound and determined to go east to college, escaping the dreariness of her home in Sacramento, CA. She fights against but is exactly like her wildly loving, deeply opinionated and strong-willed mom (Laurie Metcalf), a nurse working tirelessly to keep her family afloat after Lady Bird’s father (Tracy Letts) loses his job. A coming of age story that exhibits both humor and pathos, Lady Bird dives deep into the relationships that define us and the beauty of a place called home.
What Greta Gerwig has done, is to infuse one of the most convention-bound, rose-colored genres in American cinema with freshness and surprise.
You want to give thanks for how wonderful it is, how wise and funny and full of grace.
