| Pure coming of age escapism
This film is a blissful piece of nostalgic joy. I was nowhere near Sacramento in 2002, but whilst watching I genuinely felt as if I was there.

The relationship between Ladybird and her mother is the underlying thread throughout and they pull off a believable dynamic that's fun to see. There are also a bunch of other sub stories that are beautifully woven in.

I highly recommend if you want a nice relaxing film that is not too long and makes you smile at the end.

Alternate Versions

In India, the film was released in two separate versions; one classified at A while the other classified at U/A. The A-rated version of the film is for the most part identical to the original uncut version of the film however with anti-smoking advertisements placed at the beginning and middle of the film and stronger language ('c**t', 'dick', 'penis' and 'tits') being muted on all occasions. The U/A version of the film was later released with heavier reductions made. Along with the original changes made for the A rating the distributor also removed and muted out dialogue deemed to strong for the U/A rating (references to sperm, virginity, a scene in which a woman tells someone to 'suck a dick' and school girls discussing sex in a classroom were all either muted or removed). The sex scene between Kyle and Lady Bird was removed along with sight of a woman underwater in swimming gear; two shots of kissing were also removed. This edited version of the film (which runs around seven minutes shorter) was then re-released in India later with a U/A rating.
