Goofs

A shot of a freeway sign in Sacramento showed an exit number. The movie takes place in 2002, which was the year California started numbering its freeway exits, but they started out on rural exits and made their way to urban areas a few years later, so no exit in a city the size of Sacramento would be numbered at this point.

Fantastic directorial debut by actress Greta Gerwig.
6 March 2018 | by Anurag-ShettySee all my reviews

Lady Bird tells the story of Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson(Saorise Ronan). Lady Bird is in her final year of high school. Christine's daily life is chronicled, in her hometown of Sacramento, California.

Lady Bird is an amazing film. Director Greta Gerwig has given us a simple yet highly entertaining movie, of a headstrong girl who will stop at nothing to achieve her dreams. Gerwig expertly balances the comedic & dramatic moments. The performances are the highlight of the movie. Saorise Ronan is spectacular as Lady Bird McPherson. Ronan is becoming one of the finest young actresses in Hollywood, after similar performances in The Grand Budapest Hotel(2014) & Brooklyn(2015). Laurie Metcalf is outstanding as Marion McPherson. The dynamic between Ronan & Metcalf's characters makes this film, unforgettable. Tracy Letts is brilliant as Larry McPherson. Lucas Hedges is superb as Danny O'Neill. Timothee Chalamet is awesome as Kyle Scheible. Beanie Feldstein is excellent as Julie Steffans. Lois Smith & Stephen Henderson are good as Sister Sarah Joan & Father Leviatch, respectively. Odeya Rush, Jordan Rodriguez & Marielle Scott are impressive as Jenna Walton, Miguel McPherson & Shelly Yuhan, respectively. Lady Bird is a must watch. Go, relive your rebellious teenage years again.
