Genre: Comedy, Drama
What is it about: It’s a comedy drama which revolves around a mother and daughter. Who have an innate relationship. This forms the crux of the story directed by Great Gerwig.
Why it’s disappointing: I have no qualms about this movie.
What to watch out for: Adolescence is a tricky period and it never keeps your sanity at a level. The film explores the nuances of it and makes a very strong case on how when it is placed in a sect turns out aggressively loveable. The character sketches were brilliant and it was nonetheless chosen aptly. The screenplay was tight and it was on track without drifting in to usual high school parodies Hollywood dives in to. Rather it had a different take and was packaged freshly.
Saoirse Ronan as Christine/Lady Bird was brilliant. She brings an amazing charisma to the character and played it downright brutal and diligently.
Laurie Metcalf as Marion, she was great and dished out an amazing performance.
The rest of the supporting cast was great who did their parts gracefully and fit their attires well.
The cinematography by Sam Levy was good and the editing by Nick Houy was crisp. The score by Jon Brion was mellow.
Verdict: Great Gerwig, did a fine job in bringing out the rage involved and how beautifully it was placed between the domestic conflicts makes “Lady Bird” a winner. Definitely worth a watch.
