Storyline

Christine "Lady Bird" MacPherson is a high school senior from the "wrong side of the tracks." She longs for adventure, sophistication, and opportunity, but finds none of that in her Sacramento Catholic high school. 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.

Goofs

When they were shopping at the (Sacramento) Thrift Town, the metal hangars on the racks that are shown, were not used back then, they have only been used in the last three years or so. Also the 'sale' signs with 30% and 50% off on the dressing room doors, have only been recent in the last few years. Back in 2003 there were not signs like that. See more »

Small Town Girl Makes Good
4 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

Having been a product of Sacramento I can speak with some authority on the vibe and allure the city/town offers. The casting was superb, the detail mindful and the dialog real. The fast pace of the film was a contrast and appreciated yet real time in Sacramento lags. Lady Bird and her mothers relationship is all too common during the teen years of angst and the coming of age battles one fights are displayed truthfully. Anyone with attachment to the city must see this film, you'll realize that sometimes the grass is not always greener and appreciate what you had when it's gone.
