Lady Bird. Trailer. Saoirse Ronan. Laurie Metcalf. Tracy Letts. Lucas Hedges. Lois Smith.

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.

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.

tFrom director Todd Solondz, WIENER-DOG is a dark, starkly funny story of a single dog and the many different people she touches over her short lifetime.

Dawn reunites with someone from her past and sets off on a road trip. After leaving Dawn, Wiener-Dog encounters a floundering film professor, as well as an embittered elderly woman and her needy granddaughter—all longing for something more. Solondz’s perversely dark comedy offers an appallingly honest look at the American experience, brought to life by its all-star cast.
