GRETA Gerwig, in Lady Bird, 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 (Saoirse Ronan) fights against her but is exactly like her wildly loving, deeply opinionated and strong-willed mother (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.
In cinemas 15 February.
