Written and directed by Greta Gerwig. It’s form is of a chain of short scenes each conveying a bit of information or social observation. She has assembled a selection of outstanding performers to execute these scenes.

Film Synopsis

A CALIFORNIAN High School student desperate to escape her home town of Sacramento to study on the East Coast, finds her roots in the city are far deeper than she could have imagined in Greta Gerwig’s bittersweet coming of age tale, Lady bird.

Christopher Mc Pherson, who calls herself Lady bird, is applying for colleges while attending a Catholic School. She wants to go to New York but her mother wants her to apply to in-state colleges.

The pained relationship between mother and daughter is the real heart of the movie and is tied up with class and money too.

The family are broke and the father out of work but Lady bird rejects her life and future ahead to apply in secret to expensive colleges in New York and enrages her mother when she finds out. BD
