Owen’s review published on Letterboxd:
Didn’t rewatch this but it’s its two year anniversary of being released so I just had to get this out. I remember my parents seeing this in the theater while I was at school one day. I didn’t really care at first, because at that point I didn’t know how much this film would come to shape me, to help me grow as an individual, and so on and so forth. I was just beginning to become interested in different types of films, but hadn’t fully had the wake-up call that happened later that year that led me down the path of exploring more films. I saw this film a month or so after it was released on digital and my life was changed forever, and I might say that about a lot of movies but Lady Bird is one that I feel everybody should love and cherish. It feels like warmth, like home to me. As I near adulthood I begin to notice bigger takeaways and things I couldn’t relate to before but can now. Thank you, Greta Gerwig and Saoirse Ronan and everyone else who worked on this film for creating one of the most emotionally resonant experiences of my life.
