In the early 2000s, an artistically-inclined seventeen year-old comes of age in Sacramento, California.
The lead character is named Christine after Greta Gerwig's mother, Christine Gerwig. In addition, the mother in the film, Marion (played by Laurie Metcalf), is a nurse, just as Christine is in real life.
Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson:
People go by the names their parents give them, but they don't believe in God.
When Lady Bird's parents pull up to the curb at the airport, a United sign is visible bearing the company's current globe logo, which it inherited from its merger with Continental Airlines. The scene takes place in summer 2003, but the United/Continental merger re-branding was not completed until 2012.
