The solo directorial debut from Greta Gerwig, Lady Bird follows high school senior Christine McPherson – or ‘Lady Bird’ as she goes by – as she navigates a turbulent 12 months before leaving home for college. Starring the amazing Saoirse Ronan in the titular role, Lady Bird clashes horns with her mother (Laurie Metcalf), girls at school and a handful of love interests as she plots a route to the Big Apple. Gerwig’s mumblecore dramedy received rave reviews at Telluride Film Festival just last weekend, and hits theatres 3rd November in the US and 16th February 2018 in the UK.
