Synopsis

High school senior Christine McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) — also known by the nickname she chose for herself, Lady Bird — is desperate to get out of California. She can't wait to move to the East Coast, where she dreams of big city life and Ivy League universities.

However, because her grades are nothing spectacular and she has no connections, Lady Bird decides she needs to add extracurriculars to make her college applications stand out.

She considers joining Math Olympiad, but her math grades are terrible, so she joins the drama club. Meanwhile, her mother, who doesn't understand Lady Bird's aspirations and desire to move far away, has her hands full supporting the family by working double shifts as a nurse. She struggles to understand her self-centered daughter, who believes she deserves everything in life and that everyone should love her the way she is.

  • 5 stars "Lady Bird reminded me of how fragmented and irritating adolescents can be. If someone can't see the humour and the empathy in this film, they're missing the point of this real slice of life."
  • 1 star "I was excited to see this movie because it was filmed in Sacramento and was receiving Oscar consideration. What a disappointment! The main character was unlikable, she used everyone and was only concerned with her own needs. I could not wait for the movie to be over."
  • 5 stars "This movie is a roller coaster of emotions,was made with alot of love and care."
