Lady Bird

Wednesday, January 17, 2018

In LADY BIRD, Greta Gerwig reveals herself to be a bold new cinematic voice with her directorial debut (she also wrote the screenplay), excavating both the humor and pathos in the turbulent bond between a mother and her teenage daughter. Christine "Lady Bird" McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) 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. Set in Sacramento, California in 2002, amidst a rapidly shifting American economic landscape, LADY BIRD is an affecting look at the relationships that shape us, the beliefs that define us, and the unmatched beauty of a place called home. R / 94 min. - synopsis from Rotten Tomatoes, where the film enjoyed a 100% rating for weeks until one reviewer rather dubiously decided to buck the trend; the internet responded, and we'll just leave it at that
