An assured debut. Really like that this wasn’t shot like a mumble core movie.
"I'm sorry I wanted more" these words from Greta Gerwig's directorial debut have left me haunted me and sleepless. Exactly one year after the world premiere of "Moonlight", I find myself in the Chuck Jones Theater at Telluride, alone in room full of legends.
Barry Jenkins takes the stage to introduce "Lady Bird" and he tells the story of when he first met Greta, he was broke on the festival circuit in 2008 with his first feature "Medicine for Melancholy".…
Brilliant. Brilliant. Brilliantly done.
This is a masterpiece of a character study.
“No-one would believe someone like you” that is what this film is about.
“You take up too much space” at that line I began to cry.
So amazing. Favorite film of sundance so far this year.
