    Lady Bird

    ★★★★½

    I have always been a sucker for coming of age films.  Over the years I have seen many that have felt relatable, Kings of Summer, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, but few have had the heart and soul of Lady Bird.

    I definitely need to rewatch this film. I had a massive headache and stomachache that decided to attack me a half hour into this film but of course I wasn't going to leave my seat for anything.

    This film is such a stunner to watch. The character beats are perfect, the action breathtaking, the story is moving. This film is…
