Spoiler-free Review

I recently saw the previews for Lady Bird and knew it was something I was going to have to see. The scenes selected for the trailer made it look like a comedic, emotional coming-of-age film. Going into the theater I was very excited, and this movie definitely delivered!

I haven’t been a teenager for a little while now, but I found Christine (“Lady Bird”) to be an extremely relatable character, when I thought about myself at her age. She was awkward, naive, and certain she knew everything she needed to. Also refreshing is the fact that Saoirse Ronan actually looked like a teenager. Too often we see teenagers in media portrayed by much older adults, and it’s usually pretty obvious.

The whole film felt so authentic to me, from the settings to the actors. It felt like it was all pulled straight from real life. Usually I don’t love movies with slow-moving plots that are character centric, but this was so well-done that I didn’t mind at all. It did feel like it dragged on just a little too much, but maybe that’s just me.

Anyway, I highly recommend y’all give this a watch! It’s one of the best movies I’ve seen in the entirety of 2017.
