flora 🌿’s review published on Letterboxd:
i put off watching lady bird for the longest time
whenever something is labelled as "relatable" i'm scared of it; i always struggle to genuinely connect with the characters as i feel i should
here i sit, sobbing my eyes out, thankfully proven wrong: there are so many moments that parallel my life as it is. the awful embarrassment from being less well off than your peers, and the aspiration for something more, without intentions of being ungrateful to those who raised you.
lady bird is kind of horrible, in the same way that i am
realising how much of the world is beyond your scope hurts but allows for growth, even if growth hurts
thank you i guess
