February 16, 2018
As teen movies go, it's supremely sophisticated, capturing and crystallising that moment in adolescence when it seems that life is at last about to start and the only place you want to be is elsewhere.
February 16, 2018
Like many wonderful actresses with a gift for words (think Julie Delpy, Sarah Polley and Lake Bell) Gerwig has slipped behind the camera to create something quietly political.
February 16, 2018
Gerwig's deft handling of script, camera and actors is all the more impressive given that this is her first film as solo director.
February 15, 2018
A gloriously funny and wistfully autobiographical coming-of-age comedy.
November 30, 2017
Gerwig finds a warmer part of herself when, unencumbered by any lab partner, she returns to her hometown with Lady Bird. One can only hope that, this time, she stays.
November 30, 2017
A heartfelt coming-of-age story that perfectly captures the bittersweet transition from adolescence to dawning adulthood...
November 17, 2017
"Lady Bird" is a deeply accomplished debut, as much a love letter to Gerwig's hometown as it is to awkward adolescence. It flies.
November 16, 2017
The good news is that the film doesn't fall off from the standard it sets in opening.
November 16, 2017
Lots of movies are set to be popping up in multiplexes, but few as wonderful as "Lady Bird."
November 16, 2017
One of the best movies about adolescence to come along in years.
November 9, 2017
Lady Bird understands late adolescence as the endless accumulations of tiny humiliations and a deep, unutterable yearning for escape.
November 9, 2017
Lady Bird may sound slight, but it offers an eloquent, fresh voice from a thoroughly accomplished film-maker.
November 9, 2017
The delightful and insightful Lady Bird achieves flight in its own unique way, just like the aerodynamically unorthodox ladybug the title tips to.
November 9, 2017
Lady Bird is a coming-of-age story distinguished by a great script and a perfect cast.
November 9, 2017
Highlighted by an awards-worthy performance by Saoirse Ronan and structured around a light, witty script by Gerwig, the movie delivers a well-targeted snapshot of a year-in-the-life of an ordinary high school senior.
November 9, 2017
It's unique and original and fresh and wonderful, and can you tell I loved it?

Saoirse Ronan plays Lady Bird as if she'd been following writer-director Greta Gerwig around all her life - mannerisms and liberated worldview fully internalized.
November 9, 2017
It's a great movie.
November 9, 2017
In Ronan's marvelous performance, tough and transparent at the same time, we can see the blurred outlines of the equally assured filmmaker behind her.
November 9, 2017
"Lady Bird" is a triumph of style, sensibility and spirit. The girl at its center may not be a heavyweight, but her movie is epic.
