| "Charming" - if you pay the right kind of attention to it.
"Lady Bird" is Greta Gerwig's beautiful and insightful film, the first for which she is solely credited as writer and director. Gerwig, a Sacramento native herself and member of her heroine's generation - the movie takes place mostly during the 2002-3 academic year - knows her characters and their world very well. Her affection envelops them like a secular form of grace: not uncritically, but unconditionally. And if you pay the right kind of attention to "Lady Bird" - played by the lovely Saoirse Ronan (already, at 23, one of the most formidable actors in movies today) - absorbing its riffs and digressions as well as its melodies, it's choral passages along with its solos and duets - It's a worth- watch for the the constant stream of early 2000s nostalgia that runs through the entire movie and a few powerful moments: the hug between Lady Bird and Danny O'Neill (you'll know it when you see it) and the mother's drive through.

Yes, Lady Bird has its moments. You will almost certainly love it.

It's hard not to.

Did You Know?


After the school production of "Merrily We Roll Along" opens, Father Leviatch (Stephen McKinley Henderson) dejectedly laments that the audience "didn't get it." While this is part of Father Leviatch's storyline (it develops that he is clinically depressed), it is also a reference to the show's initial reception. Although "Merrily We Roll Along" is now considered a classic of American musical theater and the source of several of Stephen Sondheim's most beloved songs (including "Old Friends" and "Not a Day Goes By") the original Broadway production was ravaged by critics (in the New York Times, Frank Rich called the show "a shambles" and a waste of Sondheim's talent) and it closed after only 16 performances.


Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: Do you think I look like I'm from Sacramento?
Marion McPherson: You are from Sacramento.
Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: You don't have to do that.
Marion McPherson: Well it's nice to make things neat and clean. You ready to go home?
Christine 'Lady Bird' McPherson: Ready.


When they were shopping at the (Sacramento) Thrift Town, the metal hangers on the racks that are shown, were not used back then, they have only been used in the last three years or so. Also the 'sale' signs with 30% and 50% off on the dressing room doors, have only been recent in the last few years. Back in 2003 there were not signs like that.
