Christine, aka Lady Bird, longs for a life beyond her California high school in Greta Gerwig’s solo feature directorial debut.
Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson (Saoirse Ronan, ATONEMENT, THE LOVELY BONES) isn’t even out of high school yet, and already longs for freedom from her Sacramento neighborhood. With big dreams of the east coast high life and prestigious universities, she realizes that she needs to pad her education with extracurriculars in order to achieve them, and sets out to do just that. But as she looks around at the world she’s entering – full of potential and promise, but also imperfection and injustice – she struggles to balance adolescence and adulthood.
Incredibly relatable, charming, and witty, Greta Gerwig’s (20TH CENTURY WOMEN, PORTLANDIA) solo feature directorial debut has already received critical acclaim and praise on the festival circuit, and is poised to become one of the most buzzed-about films of 2017. It also stars Laurie Metcalf (ROSEANNE), Lucas Hedges (MANCHESTER BY THE SEA), and Timothée Chalame (CALL ME BY YOUR NAME).
