Lady Bird – a film with a youthful crew, represented by 35-year-old female director Greta Gerwig – is one of the most popular works of this year’s awards season.

The story revolves around Christine (Saoirse Ronan) – a senior student at a Catholic high school in suburban Sacramento (USA), who insists that everyone call her by the nickname Lady Bird.

Lady Bird’s script conveys a simple but profound story, bringing emotions in a natural and balanced way.

Through Lady Bird’s perspective, the thoughts of a young generation of Americans appear fully and richly in nostalgia.

The work describes the character’s cognitive fluctuations in adolescence.

Meanwhile, the character’s relationship with his mother Marion (Laurie Metcalf) is central.

Lady Bird holds the two most important elements of resistance: identity (giving her own name) and future (determining her own school).

The director cleverly arranged for Marion to be a nurse – a profession that promotes safety and stereotypical actions, thereby making it easier for the audience to accept her personality.

The opening scene of the film makes a strong impression.

While light-hearted humor permeates the first act, quieter moments are concentrated in the third act.

The important factor that brought Lady Bird’s success was the acting of young actress Saoirse Ronan – who recreated the character and expressed the director’s intentions.

Young star Timothée Chalamet of `Call Me by Your Name` also has a supporting role in `Lady Bird`.

Actress Laurie Metcalf also made a strong impression as mother Marion.

Female director Greta Gerwig is originally an actress pursuing independent films.

In Indiewire magazine, Gerwig shared that Lady Bird is not an autobiographical work based on her life.

Many critics after watching the film made interesting comparisons.
