synopsis

In Lady Bird, Greta Gerwig reveals herself to be a bold new cinematic voice with her directorial debut, excavating both the humour and pathos in the turbulent bond between a mother and her teenage daughter.

Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson (Golden Globe®-winning Saoirse Ronan) fights against – but is exactly like – her wildly loving, deeply-opinionated and strong-willed mother (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 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.
