The Earwig That Is Gerwig!
5 March 2018 | by See all my reviews

Admittedly, it's a long way to go to justify a headline that may be too cute by half but bare with me. Not unlike the earwig, Gerwig is scary in both appearance and reputation but not directly harmful to humans. A vibrant beauty with strong comic undertones who could easily have established herself in an industry that values and rewards obedience, regularity and conformity and instead strives for recognition for initiative, resourcefulness and creativity. All-American work values packaged in the All-American girl? Yes. But Gerwig wants you to see her as more than that. "A science fiction pixie from a strange atomic place" perhaps. Developing her career as an indie actress in the softer light of a host of delightful indie pics, most notably 'France Ha' ( 2012) and 'Mistress America' (2015), both of which she co-wrote, 'Greenberg' (2010) and 'Lola Versus' (2012), Gerwig is all raw emotion and naked neurosis. Unafraid to portray unnervingly fractured, hapless, fatigued, sexually clumsy characters. The creative offspriing of such indie legends like John Cassavettes and Shirley Clarke. In this, Gerwig is Hollywood's 'earwig', more beneficial then we know, acting as scavenger of decades of decaying movie industry matter and predators of the resident garden pest of old school Hollywoodland. Wew! Told you we'd get there! 'Ladybird' is a good movie deserving of it's present circumstances nestled within the short list of this year's best and critical celebration of actors Ronan and Metcalf. Unfortunately, because these are the times we live in, it is Gerwig's talents (and alas subsequent gender) as the writer and director of 'Ladybird' that are stealing the show. One wonders how tired she must be of telling reporters that 'Ladybird' is not a true story. As if a female writer must drink from the well of her own non-fiction. "And when exactly did you run into this monster, Mrs Shelley?"
