In the early 2000s, an artistically-inclined seventeen-year-old comes of age in Sacramento, California.
In LADY BIRD, Greta Gerwig reveals herself to be a bold new cinematic voice with her directorial debut, excavating both the humor and pathos in the turbulent bond between a mother and her teenage daughter. Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson fights against but is exactly like her wildly loving, deeply opinionated and strong-willed mom, a nurse working tirelessly to keep her family afloat after Lady Bird’s father 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.

“Gerwig’s directorial debut is a joy from start to finish, a warm, generous snapshot of teenage vulnerability and exuberance” – Lara Zarum, Village Voice
“A deeply accomplished debut, as much a love letter to Gerwig’s hometown as it is to awkward adolescence. It flies” – Adam Graham, Detroit News
“Something truly special: a coming-of-age comedy so funny, perceptive, and truthful that it makes most other films about adolescence look like little more than lessons in cliché” – A.A. Dowd, AV Club
LADY BIRD is rated 15. Visit the BBFC website for full details (may include plot spoilers).
