Synopsis As warm as it is smart -- and it is very smart -- LADY BIRD marks actor/screenwriter Greta Gerwig's superb debut as a solo director and yet another astonishing performance by star Saoirse Ronan.3.5 stars out of 4 -- Hardly a false step is taken by Greta Gerwig in her semi-autobiographical script....There is a special authenticity here that can’t be denied.3.5 stars out of 4 -- Screenwriter Greta Gerwig, in a spectacular solo directing debut, has carved a brilliantly hilarious and heartfelt script out of her own teen life....All that's left is blunt honesty...[I] you pay the right kind of attention to LADY BIRD -- absorbing its riffs and digressions as well as its melodies, its choral passages along with its solos and duets -- you will almost certainly love it. It’s hard not to.LADY BIRD is something truly special: a coming-of-age comedy so funny, perceptive, and truthful that it makes most other films about adolescence look like little more than lessons in cliché.LADY BIRD isn’t a movie about any searing issue; it’s just a wonderful, rare character study of a young woman figuring out her identity, and all the pitfalls that follow.[I]’s the kind of modest, miraculous low-budget gem that takes on a life of its own.It is smart without being smug, insightful without being condescending, funny without being mean-spirited and genuinely moving.Metcalf and Ronan create a completely believable mother-daughter dynamic, where bickering over clothes-shopping morphs into monstrously personal arguments at the drop of a hat.[A] quirky, hilarious but also surprisingly deep journey about finding one’s own identity while transitioning out of childhood.There's so much loopy, true-to-life charm in Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut....Saoirse Ronan’s Lady Bird is exactly the kind of young heroine to make it new...Snappy, spirited and shot through with the pangs and pleasures of leaving childhood behind, LADY BIRD is a sharp-witted solo first feature by actress and now writer-director Greta Gerwig.[I]ts joyful, forward-rushing narrative rhythm captures the feeling of adolescence ending before it has barely begun.This coming-of-age tale set in 2002 Sacramento centers on Christine McPherson (Saoirse Ronan), an eccentric teenager who prefers to go by the name Lady Bird. Over the course of her senior year of high school, Lady Bird deals with the pangs of first love and clashes with her mother (Laurie Metcalf) over her plans for the future. Written and directed by Greta Gerwig, who loosely based the story on her own life. Tracy Letts, Timothee Chalamet, and Lucas Hedges co-star.
