4 Golden Globe nominations! Greta Gerwig catapults herself into the forefront of this year’s Oscar race—as a director and writer, rather than as an actress!—in LADY BIRD, her directorial debut, excavating both the humor and pathos in the turbulent bond between a mother and her teenage daughter. “This is a resoundingly modern, assuredly female-voiced comedy that portends more great things to come from Gerwig behind the camera”—Sara Stewart, New York Post. Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) fights against but is exactly like her wildly loving, deeply opinionated and strong-willed mom (Laurie Metcalf), a nurse working tirelessly to keep her family afloat after Lady Bird’s father (Tracy Letts) loses his job. Set in Sacramento, California in 2002, amidst a rapidly shifting American economic landscape, LADY BIRD is an affecting look at the relationships that shape us, the beliefs that define us, and the unmatched beauty of a place called home. R. 93 Min.
