Set over one summer, the film follows precocious 6-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 Disney World.
Thirty years after they served together in Vietnam, a former Navy Corpsman Larry "Doc" Shepherd re-unites with his old buddies, former Marines Sal Nealon and Reverend Richard Mueller, to bury his son, a young Marine killed in the Iraq War.
An other-worldly fairy tale, set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1962. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of isolation. Elisa's life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment.

When Lady Bird's parents pull up to the curb at the airport, a United sign is visible bearing the company's current globe logo, which it inherited from its merger with Continental Airlines. The scene takes place in summer 2003, but the United/Continental merger re-branding was not completed until 2012. See more »
One of the best coming-of-age, mother-daughter films
One of the best coming-of-age, mother-daughter films since JUNO and TERMS OF ENDEARMENT. LADY BIRD depicts what it really means to be on the cusp of adulthood; taking the big leap to move away from home, etc. It has many 'fresh' aspects to it. The main protagonist, Christine aka ''LADY BIRD'', she's not perfect! She has acne, she makes mistakes, etc, and played so wonderfully by Saoirse Ronan. Gerwig has really established herself as a strong director and screenwriter. Her screenplay is probably one of the strongest original screenplays. I look forward to watching again. Hopefully it will be a strong awards contender!
