Universally adored and destined to be on most critics top ten films of the year, Greta Gerwig’s (Frances Ha) directorial debut is a cinematic marvel not to be missed.
Christine ‘Lady Bird’ McPherson is a high school senior determined to escape the confines of her provincial Sacramento life for the freedom and sophistication of a New York university.
Combining impeccable direction with pitch-perfect performances, Lady Bird follows the titular character through her last year of high school as she experiences first love, broken and mended friendships and the excitement and sadness of leaving home.
