Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) fights against but is exactly like her wildly loving, deeply opinionated and strong-willed mom (Laurie Metcalf), a nurse working tirelessly to keep her family afloat after Lady Bird’s father (Tracy Letts) loses his job. Set in Sacramento, California in 2002, amidst a rapidly shifting American economic landscape, Lady Bird is an affecting look at the relationships that shape us, the beliefs that define us, and the unmatched beauty of a place called home.

Insider’s tip: “Lady Bird is that rare movie in which everything astonishes and leaves you charmed, breathless, and anxious for more” (Rex Reed, Observer). Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal, adds: “Ms. Gerwig’s movie is very much a thanking situation. Once you’ve seen it — even while you’re watching it, with a grin stuck on your face — you want to give thanks for how wonderful it is, how wise and funny and full of grace.” Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, “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.”
Nominated for 5 Oscars, LADY BIRD has another 86 wins and 189 nominations for excellence.
