Just like its title character, Lady Bird is quirky and sentimental but despite best attempts, never really defines itself into anything meaningful.

It is an unfortunate game in which a film seeks its identity while chasing a ghostly character who in turn seeks her own personality. [Full review in Spanish]

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).

[VIDEO ESSAY] I suspect that many audiences who return to "Lady Bird" will be disappointed as to how the movie stands up. It's a much worse movie the second time around, I promise you.

While Greta Gerwig may have painted her wings, it is the boldly captivating and nuanced performance from Saoirse Ronan that ultimately allows Lady Bird to fly.

Exquisitely renders the complex, funny, turbulent love between mother and daughter, which is to say, the way desire can feel like betrayal.

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.

Experiences like Lady Bird are few and far between, especially so from a first-time director. A true testament to what cinema is capable of.

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.

Lady Bird, is in its own movie making lane, and does it all without missing anything.

It feels real because the writing doesn't shy away from the pain and awkwardness and unexpected joys of the life it depicts.

Gerwig's writing prowess shines through: the dialogue is butter-smooth and manages to sound clever yet not contrived...Gerwig seems to take delight in overturning cliches. Her directorial debut brims with emotion and talent.

The charm of Lady Bird is not its use of cinematographic language...but it's exciting in its portrayal of adolescence and the construction of identity. [Full Review in Spanish]
