Sam’s review published on Letterboxd:
this is a phenomenal directional debut from Greta Gerwig. While I’m sure she’s had plenty of practice over the years I don’t think anyone expected something like Lady Bird, and while I didn’t personally relate (maybe it’s because I come from a Hispanic family??) I still respected what the story was saying, we’ve all had those instances in life some way or another. Saoirse Ronan certainly gave an Oscar worthy performance but I think Beanie stole the show for me.
