Lady Bird - Movie Synopsis & Plot

In "Lady Bird," Greta Gerwig reveals herself to be a bold new cinematic voice with her directorial debut, 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.

MOVIE REVIEW

If you’re going to take flight with just one movie this year, it might as well be Lady Bird, a funny, fast-paced comedy-drama that is among the year’s best thanks to strong performances by all involved and earnest direction by first-timer Greta Gerwig.
