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, Laura Marano, Beanie Feldstein. 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 17-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.
