When the present is unpleasant nostalgia is a place of comfort. Or when you think things are bad for you right now... think back to when you were 18...
Officially seen two times now I can say I’m in love with Lady Bird. Not just the title but the girl. I wish I could’ve been friends with Saoirse Ronan as Lady Bird in high school.
It is honest, she is honest. The relationship between mother and daughter is typical but rare at the same time, much like the film as a whole.
