Set over one summer, the film follows precocious six-year-old Moonee as she courts mischief and adventure with her ragtag playmates and bonds with her rebellious but caring mother, all while living in the shadows of Walt Disney World.
In May 1940, the fate of Western Europe hangs on British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, who must decide whether to negotiate with Adolf Hitler, or fight on knowing that it could mean a humiliating defeat for Britain and its empire.

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.Written by

This film was so true that it was almost hard to watch. This is not because it was hurtful. There is a resistance in watching something that has so much of you in it. I write this not just relating to the main character. Lady Bird has a bit of everyone in it- thus truly mimicking life. It is this philosophy that brings the higher level intelligence to the simple concept of the film. Breathtaking cinematography and editing add a praise worthy polish and appreciation for the film in and of itself. This is a much watch for all who invest much in movies and highly recommend for those whom may not be familiar with the more indy aspects of movies. Much to be gained, much was taken away.
