Lady Bird

Lady Bird ★★★★

if every movie was the carefully crafted love letter this movie is we’d certainly be better off, but i just really wish my enjoyment of it didn’t depend so heavily on lady bird’s relatability as a character. i know so many people see themselves in her, but she just doesn’t feel real to me and i can’t really explain why. this film is both universal and authentic and it’s made clear through its idiosyncrasies that it’s a story the author had to tell, but, for me, lady bird feels more like a conduit for that story instead of a character who’s alive in it and that makes me really sad.
