Critic Reviews for Lady Bird
Gerwig finds a warmer part of herself when, unencumbered by any lab partner, she returns to her hometown with Lady Bird. One can only hope that, this time, she stays.
A heartfelt coming-of-age story that perfectly captures the bittersweet transition from adolescence to dawning adulthood...
"Lady Bird" is a deeply accomplished debut, as much a love letter to Gerwig's hometown as it is to awkward adolescence. It flies.
Lots of movies are set to be popping up in multiplexes, but few as wonderful as "Lady Bird."
One of the best movies about adolescence to come along in years.
Audience Reviews for Lady Bird
Hilarious, moving, and truthful, Lady Bird is a pure gem -- featuring a great performance by Saoirse Ronan.
Extremely well-done, small-scale, coming-of-age drama. Emotionally affecting and surprisingly funny. Ronan delivered a very profound performance as the titular character, Lady Bird.
I love great coming of age films, and this film is just that. Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf are terrific in this funny, charming and grounded film about growing up a girl from a modest family discovering herself and aspiring to more than what is expected of her, and parents making hard sacrifices and letting go. The mother-daughter relationship is complex and portrayed as such, and the friendships seem real and fun. My only problem with the film is the pace, which seems rushed in the beginning and then slows down later. Otherwise, a great small-scale film that has a lot to say.
