Directed by Greta Gerwig and nominated for five Oscars,
LADY BIRD is a warm, affecting comedy about a high schooler (Saoirse
Ronan) who must navigate a loving but turbulent relationship with her
strong-willed mother (Laurie Metcalf) over the course of her eventful
and poignant senior year of high school.
Golden Globe winner for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy and Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. Film Independent Spirit Award winner for Best Screenplay.
“As warm as it is smart – and it is very smart – LADYBIRD marks
actor/screenwriter Greta Gerwig’s superb debut as a solo director and
yet another astonishing performance by star Saoirse Ronan.” – Kenneth Turan, The Los Angeles Times
