Lady Bird

Lady Bird ★★★★★

A film about paying careful attention— to your loved ones, to your own ambitions, to where and how you live— without worrying what that looks like, or whether it's even visible, to other people. Gerwig probably anticipated that her diligent direction wouldn’t be showy enough for some awards bodies, but that’s not what matters to her; god bless her. In many ways, this is a procedural film about relationships. And behind every good procedural is a master of procedure.
