Storyline

Christine "Lady Bird" MacPherson is a high school senior from the "wrong side of the tracks."

LADY BIRD follows the title character's senior year in high school, including her first romance, her participation in the school play, and most importantly, her applying for college.

Trivia

Saoirse and Greta first met at the Toronto Film Festival in 2015 when Saoirse was promoting Brooklyn (2015) and Greta Maggie's Plan (2015). Saoirse had already read Greta's script and instantly connected with the titular character, so when both ladies discussed the script at length in Saoirse's hotel room and she read the key part aloud, Greta knew that she'd found her "Ladybird."

Simple But Incredibly Effective
3 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

Does this movie follow the same formula that every other coming-of- age film follows? Yes, it does. But what makes Lady Bird so special is the performances across-the-board, and the writing and direction by Greta Gerwig. Saoirse Ronan is a force to be reckoned with. She is only 23 years old, and is already a two-time Academy Award nominee. And I do think there is a strong chance that she'll gain a third nomination for her role in this film. Ronan brings such humanity and energy to this character. She's quirky and out there, but not just for the sake of being so. It works for the character, and Ronan plays it so well. I guarantee you; she is an actor who will be around for a very long time, and this movie reaffirms that for me. Laurie Metcalf is also fantastic as the mother. She has a great dynamic with Lady Bird that gives the movie so much of its conflict, as well as its heart...
