"Lady Bird" is far from a perfect film, it's just not the mumblecore disaster you'd expect from Greta Gerwig - one of the mumblecore movement's prime progenitors.

Yet while [Greta] Gerwig doesn't exactly reinvent the coming-of-age genre, she packs it with great scenes, dialogue and performances

Lady Bird is a brilliant little movie that deals with ideas both big and small. But, most powerful is the relationship between Lady Bird and Marion. It is harsh and funny and sometimes hard to watch. But it is undeniably and eternally there.

Saoirse Ronan... is perfect for the role of the rebellious girl who dreams of more, but does not want to completely destroy the hearts of her parents. [Full review in Spanish]

The affection with which she portrays her hometown on screen, coupled with the impatience of her youthful alter-ego, imbues much of Lady Bird with a refreshing ring of truth.

Lady Bird, in a year without a clear front-runner, could take flight and usher in the kind of impactful changes in the film industry we've been dreaming of and whispering about for the last decade.

... an astute, clever, often funny, and poignant portrait of the teenage transition to adulthood.

[Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf's] verbal battles are hilarious, their stalemates wrenching, their tender moments intoxicating.
December 11, 2017
Though Gerwig's talents as a writer-director shine, it's the casting of Ronan in the lead that makes "Lady Bird" such a memorable work. The layers she gives the character will make the performance go down as one of the best high school characters ever.

The film soars because it scans as real, each character someone who might very well live next door, struggling with everyday issues - family, sex, love, money, status, expectation, and disappointment.
November 6, 2017
Greta Gerwig has reclaimed the narrative around virginity - and it's all the better for it.

Greta Gerwig's directorial debut is something special and proves that Gerwig is not only a talent in front of the camera but behind one as well. In a sea of coming of age movies, Lady Bird stands out as a truly fantastic film.
