Lady Bird

Lady Bird ★★★★★

I smiled. I laughed. I cried. As a 17 year old girl who is going through all of the same stuff in the movie, I can’t even begin to describe how much I relate to Lady Bird. Wanting to grow up so bad, but wanting to stay young at the same time. Being a teenager is hard, you’re just trying to figure out life for yourself. Navigating relationships, fitting in, your future, dealing with your parents, and everything else that high school brings forth are difficult things to figure out. I can also personally relate to Lady Bird herself because we have a lot in common. I have a complicated relationship with my mom, one that I think is very similar to Lady Bird and her moms. We sometimes don’t understand each other and we’re very different people but I think we ultimately love each other, even though it can be hard to show it. I strive to go to college in New York and finally make something of myself. I want to be different, I hate ordinary. I also grew up in religion and its hard to navigate teenage life and figure out what you want to do with religion hanging in your face. (Although this isn’t a major theme, it is in my life and you can see it somewhat in the movie) You don’t know what you want. Religion restricts what you can do with your life, and it’s a very hard thing to navigate. I think this movie showed very accurately what teenagers go through. Relating to the character Lady Bird so much made the movie so personal to me. Saoirse shined in this movie, perfect fit for the role. I think I love coming of age films so much because i’m at the point in my life where i’m on the cusp of adulthood, and i’m very much dealing with the stuff you see in coming of age films. Outstanding movie, and one I will keep close to my heart in the upcoming years as I continue to navigate life for myself. ♥️
