In LADY BIRD, writer and director Greta Gerwig reveals herself to be a bold new cinematic voice with her directorial debut, 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.
