Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson:
Hi Mom and Dad, it's me, Christine. It's the name you gave me. It's a good one. Dad, this is more for Mom. Hey, Mom, did you feel emotional the first time that you drove in Sacramento? I did and I wanted to tell you, but we weren't really talking when it happened. All those bends I've known my whole life, and stores, and the whole thing. But I wanted to tell you I love you. Thank you, I'm... thank you.

I thought this was just another coming-of-age drama, but it was much more than that. Lady Bird is funny, it's romantic, it's heartbreaking, and it's beautiful. Every character is well developed, not one is left behind. The writing is so perfect, and the performances are even better. Saorsie Ronan give an incredible performance and my boy Timothee Chalamet shows up, but I hate his character in this movie because he's a little punk. Please watch this movie. This movie will make you smile and it'll make you cry, everything about it is just so perfect!
