Lady Bird (15)

Comedy, Drama

In 2002, an artistically inclined seventeen-year-old girl comes of age in Sacramento, California.

The critical consensus

Smart, funny and emotional, Lady Bird is a Trojan horse movie – sneaking its way into hearts and minds via well-worn tropes.

****(*)Jane Crowther, Total Film, 12/02/2018

A coming-of-age story like no other, Lady Bird is smart, emotional, funny and completely original. Rarely has a directorial debut been so assured, so singular and so heartwarmingly affecting.

****(*)Terri White, Empire Online, 12/02/2018

Wise, witty and breezing along life's highway on a blast of sunny optimism, this is just the film to banish those winter blues.

****(*)Allan Hunter, The List, 12/02/2018

It turns out to be one of the best American coming-of-age films since Barry Levinson’s Diner. Written and directed by Greta Gerwig, it offers an utterly winning mix of humour, poignancy and sharp-eyed social observation.

****(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 14/02/2018

Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf are tremendous in Greta Gerwig’s moving and gloriously funny film about growing up, mother-daughter relationships and the anxiety of separation.

*****Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 15/02/2018

Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf are electric as warring daughter and mother in Greta Gerwig’s beautifully observed comedy-drama.
