When I heard A24 was coming out with a coming-of-age story about a teen who fights with her mom, wants to live in New York, and is obsessed with Timothee Chalamet, to be honest I thought it was an autobiography of my life. The first day Lady Bird was released in New York City every seat in the theater was full, and rightly so. I dreaded the lights coming on when the movie finished because I was a wreck afterwards; it’s the most relatable film I have seen lately, probably because it is one of the only films released in 2017 directed by a female director. This creates a different take on your average high school story, a more gentle and realistic version of risqué topics that will definitely make you laugh out loud and cringe at the truth of them. Everything about this movie is magic, the soundtrack, the cast (!!!), the cinematography, all of it. Watch this movie- laugh the entire time, cry about it for days after, and call your mom and tell her you love her when it’s over.
