Lady Bird

2017 | 94 min | K-12 | comedy, drama

In the hilarious drama-comedy, Christine, who calls herself “Lady Bird”, struggles with the cross-pressure of her school’s rigid traditions, caring parents, first heartaches, and big dreams for the future. Lady Bird is on a collision course with her strong-willed nurse mother. This works tirelessly to keep the family afloat after the father becomes unemployed. Both are carved from the same wood and have the same bull’s head.

The story, which takes place at the beginning of the 21st century, tells a touching story about human relationships that shape us, beliefs that define us, and a place called home, the meaning of which is irreplaceable.

Directed by Greta Gerwig. As actors, e.g. Saoirse Ronan, Laurie Metcalf, and Tracy Letts.
