Writer-director and all-around indie darling Greta Gerwig cemented her status as one of Hollywood's brightest with her somewhat self-inspired coming-of-age comedy-drama about a 90's-era California high school student who plans to escape from her family and small town by going to college in New York, which went on to garner Golden Globe awards (Best Picture and Best Actress, Saoirse Ronan) and five big Oscar nods (including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Supporting Actress for Laurie Metcalfe). With Tracy Letts, Lucas Hedges, Timothée Chalamet, Beanie Feldstein, Stephen McKinley Henderson, and Lois Smith.
"The kind of modest, miraculous low-budget gem that takes on a life of its own." (Variety)
"What Greta Gerwig has done — and it’s by no means a small accomplishment — is to infuse one of the most convention-bound, rose-colored genres in American cinema with freshness and surprise." (The New York Times)
"Just when you think there's nothing original or exciting left to mine from a coming-of-age story, along comes the totally irresistible LADY BIRD – a reminder that no genre is played out when there's a new artist around to see it with fresh eyes." (Rolling Stone)
