I feel like just about everyone will connect with this movie in some way. It's funny, sad, charming and honest. Saoirse Ronan's performance is one of the best of the year. Her chemistry with Laurie Metcalf makes the Mother/Daughter relationship really work. Lucas Hedges and Tracy Letts are both fantastic too. I think every kid in high school should watch this movie.

Edit: I saw this again and it is still my favorite of the Oscar nominations. It really has a way to make you feel like your in high school again. Makes you realize how much you parents do for you and how much I love mine.

Edit 2: I watched this again, twice in two days, this time with my parents. My dad was cracking up at every time Lady Bird was shit talking her mom while my mom didn't think it was that funny. He also said some of the dad's lines literally right before he said them. After it ended my mom said "That's it? I thought she was going to come back and write her mom a check."

Greta Gerwig is such a talented Writer, Director, and Actor. I was so excited to see this movie and was not disappointed. I look forward to everything Greta does and can’t wait to see what’s next.

Lady Bird is a must see in theaters!

I wish I'd seen the same film everyone else on the planet seems to have seen. I suspect the one I saw had gone bad. Maybe it'd been out too long because it was not at all fresh, but a bit stale and a tad bland. I protest! I ordered the same thing everyone else had! As it is, I'm sending this one back.

This was the best coming-of-age comedy in recent times, and also the most honest and realistic one. Saoirse Ronan's superb performance and an all-star cast shines in the hands of director Greta Gerwig. Lady Bird is certainly a character that will remain in my heart and memory...

Thought I had to watch this because of all the hype and good reviews, but was disappointed in the end. Saoirse was really good and I'm sure will become a top-level star eventually, but that was all that I thought was worthwhile. Acting was generally well done, story was okay, but don't really see it as standing apart on its own as something great.

Lady Bird is dramatic and emotional, but at the same time relatable (especially from my own personal opinion) and I really can’t think of a single fault in it. The direction comes with an understanding of the material and all actors present their characters in different ways making everyone unique in how they influence Lady Bird (Christine)’s life. The film is very grounded in the real world, making it even more natural and special as the film goes on.

Normally I wouldn't recommend to watch a movie this terrible, but this a different kind of terrible. If you're a filmmaker you should definetly watch it, because you can easily understand what went wrong with it, and learn from its mistakes. I dind't like anything, from the acting, to the camera movement, the colour grading, the cinematography, the plot, the character arc, not to mention the ending. A regular watcher can't tell what this film is about once it's finished, it's just a normal story. Which is totally fine, not every movie should carry a deeper meaning in it. And a story as such should aim to engage with the audience in an emotional way. Which is the worst part about this movie. It's uncomfortable half of the time, and i wouldn't want to be in it. The pacing was the only thing that was okay and that sustained my attention, other than my interest in understanding why it was so terrible watching it.

Pointless. Boring. A waste of time.

Saoirse Ronan was the draw to this film for me. Her range of characterization and proficiency of craft makes every character she inhabits special and true, as is her Lady Bird. Although Saoirse was surrounded by a solid cast, Laurie Metcalf gave a performance I didn't know she had in her. This movie would have fallen apart had the two lead roles not held their own against/with each other. Although this film is a coming of age story, it is also nuanced, quirky, funny, sad and poignant, and, it delivers our character to a destination at the end of her journey, something lacking in many slice of life films of this generation. This is a good movie, you'll feel strongly for the characters and get caught up in their journeys. I give it a 7 (good) out of ten for the story, but the performances of Ronan and Metcalf a 10 (perfect) out of 10. [Comedy-in-life Drama]

Got to be one of the best movies of 2017. Powerful and heartwarming, but best of all, laugh out loud funny. I'll get a load of repeat viewings out of this.

This is definitely one of the most powerful (and real) stories I've ever seen in my life. Fantastic!

I wish more movies like this would be made. This girl is amazing in everything she’s in.

Hidden gem on theme of puberty and young woman problems, spiced by dark humor.

Come. On! Art house garbage. Yes, it's well acted. Yes, it has some great moments. Yes, that's it. It's one of those films where the credits rolled and I thought and said "that's it?!?" So. Lame.

Lady Bird was simply another teenage female coming-of-age film that presents us to nothing new. Definitely had some different interesting cinematography and kind of style. However, it lacks originality plot wise.

This film reminded me of another film I watched just a year ago before this one came out, titled "The Edge of Seventeen." Both films revolve around a female protagonist who goes through this "journey" of trying to fit in and then realizing what is truly important to her in the world. It also has the typical cliche concept of the female protagonist leaving their best friend over a boy. While The Edge of Seventeen seemed a bit more over the top dramatic with Hailee Steinfeld's forced edginess, Lady Bird kept a more realistic reason to have their protagonist in a complex lifestyle.

This movie is definitely way better than all of the other female coming-of-age films, however, it lacked some plot originally and was kept really bland and slow at times, with few unnecessary scenes. For that, I give the film a 6/10.

Ohh, also, Timothée Chalamet is so charming.

It was a good movie but not exceptional 7 for the movie and +1 for Saoirse Ronan cause she looks good in red.

After reading the following review i realize maybe i don't get the whole movie , so i'll watch it again. If you feel like this to read the following review and you will understand why people loved it so much:

This was a great surprise. It was happier and more uplifting than I was expecting.

The Edge of Seventeen runs circles around this film. Tim is pretty overrated too. Love the director, but not seeing the hype.

loading replies

Not bad, but for me it was just the type of movie you forget about in two weeks.

Solid coming of age story with quirky, and very realistic characters. It's an indie darling, that's being a bit overly praised, as it doesn't really do much new for the genre, but it does its thing well. It's a very human and engaging story.

Having a teen daughter in high school, who’s Catholic too, this movie had lots of familiar moments. I don’t want her to leave for school either. Good movie but I’m nut sure it’s good enough to win Best Picture.

I enjoyed watching Lady Bird, it was a nice easy movie with a good story and acting. A little predictable but that didn't make it less enjoying. It was just long enough and it somewhat felt like a love story towards Sacramento

Lady Bird is good in the way that Jane Austen's books are good: Not because it's extremely original or mindblowing, but because this is the story of a female teen told by someone who is a woman and was a teen not a lot of time ago, not by a 52 year old male. Having gone to a Catholic High School, coming from -economically- a family similar to hers, and having family members with depression did help me relate to her and make this an all tears film for me. But I feel like this film will resonate with everyone, whether you're male, black, white, latino (like me), gay, straight or bi, because it isn't just the story of a teenage girl, it's a story about growing, learning to appreciate your family, accepting yourself and just daring to be you, just you. It's about being a teenager...

P.S.: The skirt checking scene is legit af

It really is a good movie, a lot of heart, and funny... But not an Oscar winner. Not for me.

Special movie with some great acting skills and good directing!

Being a fan of a certain actor/actress makes you watch movies you otherwise wouldn't have.

Thank you for being such a great actress Saoirse.

I love Greta Gerwig, I really do. I adore most of her work. This was a good movie, but not a great movie. I went out to see it after it won the Globe. I liked it, but I didn't love it. The acting was B+, except for Laurie Metcalf who killed it. I could tell it was Greta's first solo feature script. I related to it somewhat, being a senior myself in 2002. But nothing except the final few moments made me really feel anything for the characters. A good film, but not even remotely close to the best indie film I saw from 2017.

Fantastic writing and acting. Saoirse Ronan, a star is born.

I will wager that if you like "Juno" you will like this film. The script is fast-paced without a lot of what I prefer, e.g. allowing time to pass as in real life, without dialogue constantly being spoken. This film, to me, is like a solipsist's dream.

it´s not a bad movie but there´s so many coming of age movies that don´t get the deserved credit and then there´s this one way overrated and over hyped for my taste. Not a big Ronan fan, so that doesn't really helped i guess...
