About this movie

Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) fights against but is exactly like her wildly loving, deeply opinionated and strong-willed mum (Laurie Metcalf), a nurse working tirelessly to keep her family afloat after Lady Bird’s father (Tracy Letts) loses his job. 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. - ( Original Title - Lady Bird )

An awkward tale, vulnerable and tenacious, of "Ladybird" emerging from the crucible of birth family life. Depicted with a tender humour, fragility, strength and warmth. I found this a lovely telling.. Forward and unpretentious, even though perhaps during certain transitions, a tad glib. That could of course be explained as editing concerns for a general audiences emotional stamina.

Not a bad film but not great never really gets to any heights emotionally or comically. Saoirse Ronan is excellent for sure, deserves the accolades she gets for this but sadly lacking in any other real highlights. Is it partly autobiographical? It could be, feels like it almost has something to say but never really goes there & when it tries feels too conceited. Lines like "Don't be republican" felt out of place both in the movie and from the lead role of Lady Bird. I can appreciate an ode to a hometown but need it be so transparent?

Super quirky and cute! Really shows what it's like to be a teenager who feels ALL the emotions and what it's like to feel so isolated.
