Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson dreams of escaping to university on the east coast, mostly to spite her mother Marion (Laurie Metcalf) who wants her daughter to go to a local, less expensive college. Her difficult relationship with her mother propels Lady Bird to act out, not just with adopting her preferred nom de plume, but with trying out new friends and sexually experimenting with two very different boys (Lucas Hedges and Timothée Chalamet).
Gerwig crafts a masterful study of that period of life for teenagers when adulthood and freedom seems so close and yet so far. With Ronan delivering the most accomplished performance of her career thus far, LADY BIRD is a must-see confluence of fantastic women making heartfelt art.
