Lady Bird

Lady Bird ★★★★½

It's one of the most relatable, funny, honest screenplays ever, and in only 90 minutes we get to know so many characters on such a deeply personal level. The editing is perfect(?), and the use of both sound and silence is gorgeous. The cinematography somehow makes us feel restricted to the city of Sacramento while also showcasing its simple, homely beauty, and the screenplay certainly aids in this aspect. It's strange to talk about this solely from a technical perspective because above all the technical perfections Lady Bird is genuinely a deeply affecting and personal experience.
