Greta Gerwig’s award-winning coming-of-age drama explores the stormy relationship between its enigmatic title character and her overstretched mother with high-calibre performances – starring Saoirse Ronan, Laurie Metcalf, Tracy Letts and Lucas Hedges, Timothée Chalamet, Beanie Feldstein, Stephen McKinley Henderson and Lois Smith.
Though the film gives us milestones from Lady Bird’s coming of age, its key preoccupation is the jagged relationship between Lady Bird (Saoirse Ronan) and her mother Marion (Laurie Metcalf), an overworked nurse whose blunt pragmatism butts heads with her daughter’s dreams of moving to New York, “where culture is”. The scenes between Ronan and Metcalf are electric; Gerwig maps their inability to communicate with excruciating veracity.
At the 75th Golden Globe Awards, Lady Bird won two awards—Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy and Best Actress – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy (for Ronan) – and was nominated for two more. It was also nominated for three British Academy Film Awards.
