Set over one summer, the film follows precocious six-year-old Moonee as she courts mischief and adventure with her ragtag playmates and bonds with her rebellious but caring mother, all while living in the shadows of Walt Disney World.
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.Written by

In India, the film was released in two separate versions; one classified at A while the other classified at U/A. The A-rated version of the film is for the most part identical to the original uncut version of the film however with anti-smoking advertisements placed at the beginning and middle of the film and stronger language ('c**t', 'dick', 'penis' and 'tits') being muted on all occasions. The U/A version of the film was later released with heavier reductions made. Along with the original changes made for the A rating the distributor also removed and muted out dialogue deemed to strong for the U/A rating (references to sperm, virginity, a scene in which a woman tells someone to 'suck a dick' and school girls discussing sex in a classroom were all either muted or removed). The sex scene between Kyle and Lady Bird was removed along with sight of a woman underwater in swimming gear; two shots of kissing were also removed. This edited version of the film (which runs around seven minutes shorter) was then re-released in India later with a U/A rating. See more »
Greta Gerwig explores the personal journey of Lady Bird through meaningful points in her life that define the complexity of becoming an adult. The strong relationship between mother and daughter only strengthen the overarching themes of wanting to be something more, and needing change, when things just seem too familiar.
