Dir: Greta Gerwig. With: Saoirse Ronan, Laurie Metcalf, Tracy Letts, Timothée Chalamet.
In her directorial debut, Greta Gerwig excavates both the humour and the pathos in the turbulent bond between a mother and her teenage daughter. Christine "Lady Bird" McPherson fights against, but is exactly like, her wildly loving, deeply opinionated and strong-willed mother, a nurse working tirelessly to keep her family afloat after Lady Bird's father 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.
