Ladybird(15) 

Thursday Oct 4

 

Lady Bird played by Saoirse Ronan is artistically inclined teenager, with an explosive mix of sensitivity, alienation and martyred self-importance. Her nickname is part of her insistence on self-identifying in ways other than those imposed on her by family and school. To her mother’s intense irritation, she will no longer answer to Christine, only to Lady Bird.

Marion McPherson (Laurie Metcalf), a nurse, works tirelessly to keep her family afloat after her husband loses his job. She also maintains a turbulent bond with a teenage daughter who is just like her: loving, strong-willed and deeply opinionated

Ronan and Metcalf are heartbreaking as a mother and daughter who can’t quite meet in the middle, but Lady Bird enthrals because its smaller roles are also beautifully played. It’s a clever, affecting film that’s a total pleasure to watch” Nick Levine for NME
