Greta Gerwig ..! I think she is one of the most brilliant writers of the 21th century. Frances Ha was the very first surprising experience, then Mistress America was a stunning movie to be the next.. and now this; Lady Bird.
She has such a unique, authentic way of her own that you can recognise the characters she create even not knowing that the story belongs to her. These are girls who are experiencing "finding oneself" in different periods of life and in different ways. Yet, these are not simply lost girl stories, what makes them different is that these characters are not scattered by the wind, they are fully aware of the need of getting lost and they are the ones choosing how to, they lead the "getting lost".
Lady Bird, in particular, is a stunning story of a young girl so vulnerable yet so strong. There are ups and downs, comes and goes, yet you can always feel that lead. Moreover it is a impressing mother-daughter story. Although there are no big tragedies one can always sense that strong sense of breakdown.
besides the perfect story, the actors and actresses are also amazing, and Saorise Ronan is simply fascinating! It was a true breakthrough performance!
