Lady Bird ★★★★

TIFF 2017: Film #8

THIS IS WHY GRETA GERWIG IS THE BEST! Lady Bird is an absolutely exceptional achievement in coming of age cinema. It's hilarious, devastatingly honest, and very emotional. Saroise Ronan gives a career-defining performance. I literally could not stop smiling the whole time and I'm still overjoyed from my experience. I can't wait for November so I can see this plenty more times. A profound exploration of what it means to leave home behind. All of the happiness, anxiety, sadness, anger, and excitement included. Anyone who is between the ages of 18-21 is going to get completely wrecked by this film.
