11 March 2018 | Special-K88
a touching throwback to the adolescent years
In the year 2002, Catholic high school senior Christine McPherson, self-named 'Lady Bird,' is an impetuous girl literally from the wrong side of the tracks who is at a critical stage in her life: she's continually at odds with her mother, she despises her mundane life in Sacramento, and she wants to go to college on the east coast in a city with culture. Her ordinary life suddenly takes a turn when she has to deal with popularity, discovering boys and romance, and coping with the problems of people other than her own. Cute, quirky, and thoughtful coming-of-age story is one everyone can relate to, with the all-important themes of teen angst, adolescence, and ambition; colorful dialogue, well-drawn characters, and believable situations are only elevated by a talented cast of actors. Twenty-three-year-old Ronan perfectly embodies the spirit of a self-absorbed teenager in all her complexities, making it easy for viewers to recall a similar time period in their lives. ***

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.
