25th April - 26th April
Based on director Greta Gerwig’s upbringing in Sacramento, this multi award-winning debut follows the coming of age of rebellious teenager Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson as she hurtles towards womanhood. Desperate to leave her small hometown for the draw of the big city, ‘Lady Bird’ falls in and out of love and friendships in her final year of high school. At the heart of the film is the relationship between Lady Bird and her strong-willed mother, which cycles beautifully between fiery conflict and overwhelming love. A funny, heartbreaking and nostalgic look at the transition into adulthood, and the often fractious relationships between mothers and daughters.
