Will Haskins’s review published on Letterboxd:
I’ve started to realize that the quality of movies like this rely heavily on the likability of the main character. I think this is the main strength of Lady Bird. The character is so fun to follow and Saoirse Ronan plays her so perfectly. Obviously a lot of credit also goes to Greta Gerwig, who is very good.
Watching this with my mom probably made me like this even more than I would otherwise. She cried a lot and when she cries I cry.
