    ‘Lady Bird’ Movie Review

    Lady Bird, released in 2017, with a score of 99% on Rotten Tomatoes over 398 reviews, has stood the test of time. Written and directed by Greta Gerwig, the movie is a coming-of-age story that documents a high schooler's troubled relationships with her friends and family. The protagonist, Christine McPherson (played by Saoirse Ronan) is unsatisfied with her life at a Catholic School in Sacramento. She goes by the name “Lady Bird” instead of Christine to defy her mother, and she longs to one day reside on the East Coast.
