"Like many wonderful actresses with a gift for words (think Julie Delpy, Sarah Polley and Lake Bell) Gerwig has slipped behind the camera to create something quietly political."
★★★★★
-Charlotte O’Sullivan, Evening Standard

"A sweet, deeply personal portrayal of female adolescence that’s more attuned to the bonds between best girlfriends than casual flings with boys, writer-director Greta Gerwig’s beautiful Lady Bird flutters with the attractively loose rhythms of youth."
★★★★★
-Tomris Laffly, Time Out

"A gloriously funny and wistfully autobiographical coming-of-age comedy."
★★★★★
-Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

"It’s remarkable how heartfelt each and every moment feels, without the film once descending into sentimentality."
★★★★★
-Emma Simmonds , Radio Times

"Smart, funny and emotional, Lady Bird is a Trojan horse movie - sneaking its way into hearts and minds via well-worn tropes."
★★★★★
Jane Crowther, Empire

"Gerwig’s deft handling of script, camera and actors is all the more impressive given that this is her first film as solo director."
★★★★
- Ed Potton, Times

"If Gerwig is capable of all this in her first solo feature, who knows what feats of woodwork she’ll craft for us next."
★★★★
- Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph

"Writer-director Gerwig manages brilliantly the delicate feat of portraying the vulnerabilities and eccentricities of the townsfolk without patronising them."
★★★★
- Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent

"Almost everything here bespeaks Gerwig, including the cast’s tendency to act one line or dramatic moment with breezy brio, as if already on the run to the next. Very GG."
★★★★
- Nigel Andrews, Financial Times

"Restraint ... gives the film its credibility and charm."
★★★★
- Andy Lea, Daily Express

"Its joyful, forward-rushing narrative rhythm captures the feeling of adolescence ending before it has barely begun."
★★★★
- Simran Hans , Observer

"Unusually perceptive when it comes to matters of class and money, Lady Bird finds its dramatic heart in their testy, affectionate relationship, the most indelibly drawn mother and daughter since Terms of Endearment."
★★★★
- Tom Shone, Sunday Times

"Lady Bird could still become bogged down in the dreary familiarity of its setting were it not for a sharp script by Gerwig and a terrifically likeable lead performance by Ronan."
★★★★
- Brian Viner, Daily Mail

"Smart, funny and emotional, Lady Bird is a Trojan horse movie - sneaking its way into hearts and minds via well-worn tropes."
★★★★
- Jane Crowther, Total Film


In Lady Bird, Greta Gerwig reveals herself to be a bold new cinematic voice with her directorial debut, excavating both the humor and pathos in the turbulent bond between a mother and her teenage daughter. Christine "Lady Bird" McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) fights against but is exactly like her wildly loving, deeply opinionated and strong-willed mom (Laurie Metcalf), a nurse working tirelessly to keep her family afloat after Lady Bird’s father (Tracy Letts) loses his job. Set in Sacramento, California in 2002, amidst a rapidly shifting American economic landscape, Lady Bird is an affecting look at the relationships
