Christine “Lady Bird” MacPherson is a high school senior from the “wrong side of the tracks.” She longs for adventure, sophistication, and opportunity, but finds none of that in her Sacramento Catholic high school. LADY BIRD follows the title character’s senior year in high school, including her first romance, her participation in the school play, and most importantly, her applying for college.
MovieGuy Guest Review by David J. Lieto
High school was a drag. Freshman year was exciting, for a minute. Sophomore and Junior years seemed like test-after-test, then Friday and Saturday parties. Then, there were all of those emotions swelling up in the last year. It was a kind of panic that grew stronger as it got closer toward graduation...when I questioned if I was going to go to the right college, what was I going to study, and a mess of other topics. I could see Christine McPherson having the unsettled angst in "Lady Bird", Christine’s moniker.
To not have to watch a movie about superheroes, vampires and undead, or space adventures, turned out to be refreshing. Imagine a film about people in real situations. It’s refreshing and Lady Bird is a great expression of life. It’s entertaining, well-written, well-directed, and has two great actors, Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcaf.
For my two cents, all of its nominees should have won Oscars.
I give this movie 4.5 out of 5 stars.
