Lady Bird

Lady Bird ★★★★

don't you think maybe they are the same thing? love and attention?

lady bird might not be the most inventive film but i'm in deep, deep love with it - it's so painfully relatable that it felt almost like a trip down memory lane, every single thing that lady bird experiences paralleling something i've done or felt. i found myself crying very hard at the end for reasons i couldn't fully explain, but probably have something to do with the fact that i am now an ocean away from my hometown and my mother and anything familiar. in 2017 i learned that the tangled ties of love and resentment and longing never fully fade away no matter how far you go, and lady bird feels like it was part of that experience. greta gerwig captured my heart and put it onscreen, and i'm thankful to her for that.
