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.
Gerwig and her cast and crew make Lady Bird look so easy that you might initially write it off as charming and slight - but this cinematic yearbook of a confident, flawed girl making her way into the world under her own power is big and vital and true.
Lady Bird is Gerwig's second feature and shows a great deal of talent. She also wrote the film, and... [it] feels very personal and intimate. Her writing feels genuine, the words natural, and gives the movie a very real energy.
[Greta] Gerwig's ability with actors is one of her most striking achievements, and she draws out incredible nuance from her own carefully woven script - full of tonal U-turns and emotional syncopations.
