Lady Bird

Jan 19 — Jan 21, 2018

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 (Saoirse Ronan) is a strong-willed, opinionated, and wildly passionate seventeen-year-old in constant combat with her strong-willed, opinionated, and wildly passionate mom (Laurie Metcalf), a nurse working tirelessly to keep her family afloat after Lady Bird’s father (Tracey 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.
