One of the best coming-of-age films, and one of the best of the year!
23 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

I really enjoyed LADY BIRD. One of the *best* films of the year! I totally related to the story especially the protagonist relationship with her mother and friends, and the dream of moving away to college! I watched LADY BIRD in a packed theatre with people of all ages which was fantastic to see because I've rarely seen a packed theatre for an 'independent' film! There were laughter and tears throughout. I think Gerwig has made a film for the ages. Her script is really strong and her direction too. The acting is remarkable especially Saoirse Ronan (never puts a foot wrong) and Laurie Metcalf who plays the mother so darn well! The supporting call are really great too-Beanie Feldstein, Tracy Letts, Lucas Hedges & Timothee Chalamet. This film *deserves* lots of awards love for sure! 10/10
