Synopsis

Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson is a strong-willed seventeen-year-old from the wrong side of the tracks in Sacramento, California, intent on leaving as soon as she graduates from her Catholic high school. Set in the early 2000s, the film takes place during her senior year where self-styled Lady Bird experiences first love, joins the school musical and applies for college. During these formative months, Lady Bird must also contend with the tempestuous relationship she shares with her candid mother, as her father attempts to build a bridge between the two despite being jobless and battling depression. ‘Lady Bird’ is an authentic, funny and moving coming of age tale centered on a mother-daughter relationship, based on Greta Gerwig’s own experiences, with a tremendous performance from Saoirse Ronan in the lead role.
