Seventeen-year-old Christine ‘Lady Bird’ McPherson (Ronan) is a bright and restless high-school teen embarking on the bittersweet transition from adolescence to womanhood. Dreaming of a life beyond the bounds of sleepy Sacramento, she desperately distances herself from the expectations of her critical mother, Marion (Metcalf). But both parent and daughter seem to miss the fact that they’re exactly alike: wildly loving, strong-willed and deeply opinionated. As we follow Lady Bird through the rowing, the romance and the heartbreak, we’re left charmed by first-time director Greta Gerwig’s tender and funny take on the familiar coming-of-age narrative. Smart, warm and touchingly real, Lady Bird is not your average awkward-teen movie – it’s in a class of its own.
