Oscars 2018: Lady Bird

Rotten TomatoesIMDB

Movie info from RT:

In Lady Bird, Greta Gerwig reveals herself to be a bold new cinematic voice with her directorial debut, excavating both the humor and pathos in the turbulent bond between a mother and her teenage daughter. Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) fights against but is exactly like her wildly loving, deeply opinionated and strong-willed mom (Laurie Metcalf), a nurse working tirelessly to keep her family afloat after Lady Bird’s father (Tracy Letts) loses his job. Set in Sacramento, California in 2002, amidst a rapidly shifting American economic landscape, Lady Bird is an affecting look at the relationships that shape us, the beliefs that define us, and the unmatched beauty of a place called home.

Here are my thoughts:

  • I love this movie immensely. It’s funny, smart, and full of heart. I hate that it’s less than 2 hours long and I want to watch more.
  • Saoirse Ronan is among the best actress of her generation. She’s simply a delight to watch.
  • As a product of a Catholic school myself, i find the movie super relatable.
  • I also like every single one of the characters. They make me want to know more about their lives. What is up with Miguel? How’s dad? I love these people.
  • Laurie Metcalf as Lady Bird’s mom was perfect. She was able to pull off the perfect balance of loving and stern.
  • I dont know man, this movie speaks to me in a spiritual level.

The movies I already watched are really good, so although I would like Dunkirk to win best picture, I will be happy too if Lady Bird brings home the trophy.
