Christine (Saoirse Ronan) – or ‘Lady Bird’, as she likes to be called – is the antithesis of the status quo of high school.
A senior who doesn’t want to pursue the subjects she is heavily encouraged to follow, doesn’t want to apply for the colleges her parents endorse, and, above all else, doesn’t want be categorised into a particular clique. Writer-director Greta Gerwig’s honest coming-of-age tale about an individual trying to find her place in the world – as well as the repercussions it has on her mother’s attempts to support her – perfectly balances drama with comedy, and brings to life a cast of characters that are complex, charming and relatable. Nominated for five Academy Awards this year, including Best Picture, Actress, Director and Original Screenplay, Lady Bird comes highly recommended.
