Lady Bird: Written and directed by Greta Gerwig, Greta, amazing talent as a director. Her film is light and flows along smoothly, yet has subtle explosions of emotion, heart and humor. ts a mix of feeling, and what do you think
“What makes Lady Bird stand out from other movies like it is how personal it is. Like the main character, Gerwig actually grew up in Sacramento, California in the early 2000s. I don’t know how much of the movie she experienced in real life, but Lady Bird strikes me as an honest reflection. The title character, as charismatic as she is, has very poor judgment and is self-centered. The adults are not just out of touch villains, but rather fully-fledged characters with their own motivations and conflicts. Yes, the movie hits the same story beats as nearly every other coming of age movie, but it gives the impression that Gerwig is taking a serious look back at her youth.”
It was a tender story between a daughter and a mother. They have a hard time communicating with each other about what the other wanted. Lady Bird wants to leave and experience the world. Her mother wants her close to home. Her film is light and flows along smoothly, yet has subtle explosions of emotion, heart and humor. The viewer is taken by surprise at how easily the story takes us there. The cast is fantastic and the stories the character tell are relatable to most of us. I can see why this film was so critically hailed, it’s fantastic.
“She treats her parents and friends like crap. For me at least, I was standoffish to this when I encountered it in the movie. I wanted to hate her so much for this. I had to stop myself and think what she is going through. I had to remind myself the kinds of mistakes I made as a teenager. ”
Excellent movie, very nicely done. This movie alone proves that you don’t need cgi, special FX, or modern day graphics to make a movie a good movie. It’s the acting, the story, and the thought behind it that makes a movie a good movie and this movie proves it with it’s great story and superb acting. Different movie with a great talent, soon in Cinemas, what do you think about Lady Bird?
