A PUBLIC FILM SCREENING

Lady Bird (Cert 15)    Dir Greta Gerwig           USA 2018        94 mins

Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut has established her as a bold new cinematic voice with this award-winning and critically-acclaimed film which excavates both the humour and pathos in the turbulent relationship between a mother and her teenage daughter.

Christine ‘Lady Bird’ McPherson (played by Saoirse Ronan) clashes with the very characteristics she shares with her wildly loving, deeply opinionated and strong-willed mother, a nurse who works tirelessly to support her family when her husband loses his job.

Set in Sacramento, California in 2002, amidst a rapidly shifting American economic landscape, Lady Bird is an affecting study of the relationships that shape us, the beliefs that define us and the importance of the place we call our home.
