Lady Bird is an absolute sunrise of a movie, the kind of thing that makes your heart leap and gives you hope, brings you as much joy as your best friend's wedding, and makes people like me write over elaborate opening sentences to praise it.
This film has achieved some notoriety for the cultural climate that Hollywood is experiencing at this time. If Hollywood wanted to nominate a woman, they could name Eliza Hittman or Kathryn Bigelow. (Full Review in Reforma newspaper, in Spanish).
Unusually perceptive when it comes to matters of class and money, Lady Bird finds its dramatic heart in their testy, affectionate relationship, the most indelibly drawn mother and daughter since Terms of Endearment.
The film is not so much a coming-of-age story...[it] aims for a deeper truth, being that life's most important lessons come incrementally, in small, touching moments, something Lady Bird comes to appreciate, however reluctantly.
