Quick Verdict: I wish I had just made up my own name

I can safely say that Saoirse Ronan has fast become one of my favourite actresses. Everything I watch her in, she’s fantastic.

Lady Bird is the story of Lady Bird McPherson, a young girl from Sacramento who’s desperate to go to college in New York, as far away as possible from her current life.

It is a story that’s been done before but this seems fresh and is just directed and performed brilliantly. It’s a charming coming of age film that shows the real life struggles that a teenager goes through, the parental fights and the relationship troubles. All perfectly wrapped together with Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf being an amazing mother, daughter pairing.

Well worth a watch and a worthy Oscar nominated film. Greta Gerwig is an amazingly talented writer and director. I’ve also just noticed she is making Little Women with Saoirse Ronan and Emma Watson. Sounds good.
