Lady Bird

Winner of 2 Golden Globes for Best Picture and Best Actess (Saoirse Ronan)

Winner of 4 National Society of Film Critics Awards for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Actress (Laurie Metcalf)

In her directorial debut, Greta Gerwig hits it out of the park as she reveals herself to be a bold new cinematic voice excavating both the humor and pathos in the turbulent bond between a mother and her teenage daughter. 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.
