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.
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.
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.
