In 2002, an artistically inclined seventeen-year-old girl comes of age in Sacramento, California.
This film is Gerwig's first as a solo director: in 2008, she co-directed Nights and Weekends with Joe Swanberg.
Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson:
You know, you can touch my boobs, right?
Danny O'Neill: I know. It's just that I respect you too much for that.
Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: Cool. Awesome. I totally get that. Thank you.
Danny O'Neill: You're welcome.
Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: If you had boobs, I wouldn't touch them either.
When the nun is talking with Lady Bird in the office, about the disturbing posters that she made, the posters keep changing positions in the table, while the camera moves from one character to another.
