WINNER OF THE GOLDEN GLOBES FOR BEST ACTRESS (SAOIRSE RONAN) AND BEST MOTION PICTURE - MUSICAL OR COMEDY
A rebellious young woman (Saoirse Ronan) navigates the pressures and constraints of Catholic school and life in Sacramento, in Greta Gerwig's solo directorial debut.
Christine McPherson (Saoirse Ronan- On Chesil Beach) — affectionately known and self-proclaimed as Lady Bird — is an ambitious, bright, and precocious high school senior. Longing to break free of suburban Sacramento, she dreams of a different life full of east coast skyscrapers, Ivy League universities, and cosmopolitan culture.
With modest grades and no alumni connections to speak of, Lady Bird needs extracurriculars to beef up her college applications. Joining the drama club leads to new friends (sometimes at the expense of old ones), first loves, and a social life in full swing. Dealing with her critical mother and succeeding at math do not come as easily.
Navigating the awkward space between adolescence and adulthood, Lady Bird, is a character to whom we can all relate. With her solo directorial debut, Greta Gerwig continues the charm and wit of her previous screenwriting work — Frances Ha and Mistress America. Incredibly personal and immensely relatable, Lady Bird is one of the defining coming-of-age films of its generation.
