A Hilarious, Poignant Coming-of-Age Comedy
3 November 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Greta Gerwig's directorial debut is a very funny and entertaining film about a rebellious young woman who is a senior at a Catholic high school in Sacramento. She wants to attend college on the East Coast, preferably in New York City. I have always been a fan of Gerwig and her work, and I can say that her filmmaking skills are incredibly strong here as far as directorial debuts go. The screenplay is full of wit and emotion. While the film is very light in tone, the characterizations present through the narrative as well as the film's juxtaposition of its main events pertaining to Lady Bird's (the nickname of the protagonist) final year in high school give the script considerable weight and power.

Saorise Ronan gives a hearty and very authentic performance in the lead role, and the supporting cast is generally very strong. The film's tone feels playful but also enjoyably sassy and thoughtful. As a result, the film feels far more potent than just about anything in the teenage/coming-of-age genre. While the film's pacing in its final scene feels slightly awkward given its contrast of pace with the rest of the narrative, the film feels fully satisfying in its entirety despite running a lean 93 minutes. Additionally, some of the plot devices that help form the narrative and plot line of the film feel rather predictable. However, that ends up being only a minor complaint because the humor, heart and bite of the writing helps drown out any sense of clichés that a viewer might feel. Overall, I thought this was a great and very funny coming-of-age comedy that I had a lot of fun watching. I look forward to seeing what Greta Gerwig does next with her undeniable talent. Definitely recommended. 8.5/10
