Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. Greta Gerwig. 2017, 94 mins. DCP. With Saoirse Ronan, Timothée Chalamet, Odeya Rush, Tracey Letts, Laurie Metcalf, Kathryn Newton, Lucas Hedges. In her critically acclaimed, semi-autobiographical directorial debut, Greta Gerwig excavates both the humor and pathos in the turbulent bond between a mother and her teenage daughter. Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson (Ronan) is a strong-willed, opinionated, and wildly passionate seventeen-year-old in constant combat with her strong-willed, opinionated, and wildly passionate mom (Metcalf), a nurse working tirelessly to keep her family afloat after Lady Bird’s father (Letts) loses his job. Set in Sacramento, California in 2002, amidst a rapidly shifting American economic landscape, Lady Bird is a sharply funny and uniquely moving look at the relationships that shape us, the beliefs that define us, and the life-defining complications of home.
