Storyline

Christine "Lady Bird" MacPherson is a high school senior from the "wrong side of the tracks." She longs for adventure, sophistication, and opportunity, but finds none of that in her Sacramento Catholic high school. LADY BIRD follows the title character's senior year in high school, including her first romance, her participation in the school play, and most importantly, her applying for college.

Trivia

Due to the regularity of Greta Gerwig's on-set daily consumption of Diet Coke and Cheetos, the crew nicknamed her junk food combo "The Greta." See more »

Goofs

When Lady Bird and Danny are walking towards his house on the Fab Forties street, there is a car in the background shot that has the license plate number '6'. Since the film takes place in 2002, it would be impossible for a car back then to have the license plate number '6' since California started using 6 as a license plate number in 2007. See more »

Saoirse Ronan shines as Lady Bird
25 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

This is a coming of age story about Lady Bird (Christine) McPherson, a final year high school student in Sacramento, California. The strength of the film is the depth of character and relationships between of Lady Bird, her mother Marion (Laurie Metcalf) and father Larry (Tracy Letts).

There are lots of coming of age movies, and this is one of the few I've seen in recent times that really did seem to have something new and interesting to say and show. Maybe some of these related to 'first world problems' or perhaps more accurately 'poor people's problems when looking at rich people' but the complexity and reality I found in the issues raised and the way they were addressed did not detract.

There are many commentaries about relationships, social settings and societal change relevant to the 2002 setting in this film, which I recall clearly as our elder daughter was in the transition from primary to high school around that time.

At times, it isn't easy watching; at times it's really funny and mostly it's encouraging and uplifting. If you have been through that transition from high school to university, employment, or whatever came next for you, I think you'll find something that resonates in this fine film.
