  • Lady Bird combines wisdom and tenderness, humor and grace. It's light-footed without being lightweight. And it captures, with great feeling, the turbulence of a girl growing up. I can't recommend it enough.

  • Greta Gerwig's directorial debut, Lady Bird, is the millisecond of possibility, the speck of unflinching nerve, which might only occur once in our lives.

    September 5, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • It is a female coming-of-age story that is both nostalgic and unflinching, and it will ensnare you deeply in its grasp.

    May 11, 2018 | Full Review…
  • The densely packed detail which makes this such a luminous work shows Gerwig to be an uncommonly alert filmmaker.

    February 22, 2018 | Full Review…
  • One of the finest teen comedies ever. Movie perfection

    February 21, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • One element of the film's genius is its ability to root us firmly in Lady Bird's perspective. It does more.

Audience Reviews for Lady Bird

    Lady Bird is a beautifully intimate coming-of-age tale that's provoking, emotional and even funny at times. Greta Gerwig scribes a personal tale that's intertwined with an exceptional leading performance from Ronan to make this film one of the best of the year and the best of recent years under that genre. 4.5/5

    I confess I misjudged this picture. This is a brilliant teen movie, the best I've ever seen!!! I loved it to bits!!

    Quirky, funny, sad and true take on a certain stage of adolescence relying on great characters and actors, a fine choice of music. An all around pleasant experience. I would have had no issue with Gerwig taking the directing Oscar for this.

    From the first couple moments when this movie opens you know its going to be great, the characters pull you in and hold you. It is the story of a girl you always saw in school but never talked too, it was nice seeing things from her point of you. You will laugh, and possible cry and you will definitely have a good time!
