Lady Bird

Lady Bird ★★★★★

“did you feel emotional the first time that you drove in sacramento?”

there are no words to describe the things i feel whenever i watch this film. the concept is so simple but the execution and screenplay and direction was so complex and felt like home. the relationship between lady bird and her mother felt so personal to me bc it directly reflected the relationship i have with my own mother today. i found myself saying “i do that too!” at the screen every 3 seconds. everything they fought about, the expressions her mother used and the resentment lady bird had for her own town hit SO close to home for me. adolescence is never easy and this film on a rewatch has never made me so emotional at its accuracy. this will forever be the greatest coming of age movie i’ve ever come across. greta gerwig i could never thank you enough.
