Lady Bird

Lady Bird ★★★

anyways i think what i did not like about LADY BIRD was how her character was allowed, even encouraged, to make mistakes with no consequences because she will always, always have the stability of her structured middle class (albeit lower middle class) background to keep as a safety net. Her privilege undermines her story and is what colors most coming-of-age narratives. I get why this would make her story so relateable to so many but....I'm Tired of this stories being praised as "bold" and "unique." This was quite an underwhelming experience for me and I think it's best I just stray away from these kinds of films in the future.
