Lady Bird(English,2017)


✪✪✪✪½ /5

Director: Greta Gerwig
Writer: Greta Gerwig
Stars: Saoirse Ronan, Laurie Metcalf, Tracy Letts

She wants everyone to call her ,Lady Bird,.She is in her teens and by the time,even though she appears mediocre in her skills,this young lady developed a sense of self-"confused"-esteem. Saoirse Ronan plays the character of  Christine a.k.a 'Lady Bird' in this coming-of-age movie.

 She had complex relations with every one.May be she is confused.Her mother,Laurie (Marion Metcalf) is more concerned on her.While brought up in a traditional ,small town of Sacramento,Christine had her ambitions to go for her higher studies in New York,while Laurie was totally against her wishes.Though this can be depicted as as a plot summary,the movies relies much on her life experiences related to others around her in the form of sub plots.

  Christine's idea of relationships were a matter of her concern during her first 2 outings.She was not smart enough to calculate the depths when in need.At times,she totally misjudged everyone around her.Her ambitious nature and quest for new friends even made her lie at times.She couldn't find the real Christine in her,while searching for the Lady Bird within.

  The performances from the lead characters and even the sub-characters were promising.A strong contender for the best performances of the year,Lady bird already is a special movie which raised the bars of coming of age movie genre.The movie is so realistic that at the end,one might start loving his/her teen-age.

Last Note:The movie was praised with a standing ovation in TIFF,when it first got its attention from critics.Now Golden Globe honor for Best movie(Music/Comedy) and Best actress award for Saoirse Ronan.
