Lady Bird is, essentially, a film about teenagers. It’s a film about going to school, fighting with your mum and trying to figure out who you are.
Greta Gerwig, USA 2017
Language: English, subtitles: Dutch
Greta Gerwig’s feature debut as a writer-director is a gloriously funny and wistfully autobiographical coming-of-age comedy. It is a love letter, of sorts, to her hometown of Sacramento, California; to her passionate and controlling mother; and to her dorky teenage self, who dreamed of getting away to a smart liberal arts college in New York and finding a promised land of grownup sophistication.
*The Guardian: ‘a hilarious love letter to teenagers and their mothers’
*rotten tomatoes: ‘Lady Bird exposes the intoxication with the hallucinatory cocktail of hormones processed by a brain without the experience to sort them.’
No reservation needed.
