Greta Gerwig's critically adored directorial debut is a sweet, funny ode to adolescence, small towns, the early 2000s and, ultimately, the relationship between mothers and daughters - and it's one of our favourite films of the year...
Set in 2002/2003 in Sacramento, it starts Saoirse Ronan (who picked up a Golden Globe for a performance a few weeks ago) as confused, precocious teenager Christine - or, as she prefers to be called, Lady Bird. She's in her last year at a Catholic school, and dreams of a different life of cosmopolitan culture and Ivy League universities on the East Coast, lofty aspirations that cause clashes with her mother (Laurie Metcalf), a nurse working tirelessly to keep her family afloat. Fighting with her mother, falling in and out of love, and navigating the pressure of friendship versus popularity - how can Lady Bird grow up and be true to herself?
Stuffed with nods to the early aughts (a land of constant Iraq war coverage, puka shell necklaces, the Dave Matthews Band, khaki trousers, Alanis Morrisette and Justin Timberlake's Cry Me a River), this is a loving, funny look at the relationships that shape us - and the place that we call home. And it might just be one of the defining coming of age films of its generation. Enjoy.
