Coming of Age Drama
19 March 2018 | by kz917-1See all my reviews

Lady Bird delves into the perilously fraught relationship between mother and daughter. Couple that with the coming of age story of Lady Bird a senior at a Catholic High School wending her way through relationships both romantic and friend with sometimes disastrous results.

Fantastic movie. Well done acting. Not to be missed.
