This movie was ok (it wasn’t boring nor was it very entertaining). At first I didn’t understand the point it was trying to make. Was it you can shortcut your way to your dreams if you lie, cheat, and steal (as that was exactly what she did)? It wasn’t about the pressures of class division (as a review I read states), as no one treated her as any differently regardless of her social status and any division she felt was just in her head. Her anxiety against her parents, the school, and the upper class of her school turned out to be non-issues, and when she got to where or what she wants, she just finds that the grass never gets greener for her once she was on the other side. In fact, she just becomes resented by those she abandons to get there and ultimately ends up longing for the side she left.
If anything the movie was saying that those who are rich aren’t as unexclusive as those without think, and they are just like everyone else. Just as the main protagonist was rebelling against her life to gain acceptance, so were the kids of the rich in that they are also just seeking acceptance. That doing anything to get your dreams won’t lead to satisfaction as life on the other side isn’t any better, you just end up hurting others by getting there that way, and in hindsight blinded you from what you already had.
I guess the movie had something to say after all.
★★½ – Not dull, nor was it very entertaining.
I think _Lady Bird_ is my film for 2017 where me and everyone else on the planet just straight up do not see eye to eye. At no point during _Lady Bird_ did I feel drawn in. I genuinely did not enjoy my time with Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut. I haven’t come across a single other person who feels the same, but I must be honest to my experience.
Normally this is where I would say something along the lines of, “It’s just because this isn’t my sort of movie” except that last year _Edge of Seventeen_ dealt with virtually identical subject matter and that was one of my favourite movies of the year.
So I’m just wrong I guess?
_Final rating:★½: – Boring/disappointing. Avoid where possible._
Where many movies about teenagers and high school fail, Ladybird is able to succeed
Where many movies about teenagers and high school fail, Ladybird is able to succeed… This 2017, Oscar nominated movie, made by female director Greta Gerwig, is a coming-of-age tale that follows Christine McPherson, “Ladybird,” in her final year of high school. Ladybird manages to be a realistic and nostalgic take on the experiences of a teenage girl, all while being hilarious to the audience. This is something most high school movies fail at and it can make any actual high school student feel patronized. Ladybird is never patronizing and even celebrates what it’s like to be a teenage girl. Saoirse Ronan, Christine, and Laurie Metcalf, Marion, are an amazing duo as Mother and daughter and the chemistry between them is visible. They manage to capture the highs and lows of a mother-daughter relationship at that point in life. The point between childhood and adulthood, where a teenage girl needs her mother, but needs a taste of independence just as much. Relatable and tender, Ladybird is perfect for any small-town teenager who has ever dreamt of something more from life. Christine’s drive to get into the college of her choice is both relatable and inspiring. Christine’s two romantic relationships throughout the movie, while being funny, can feel all two familiar to any teenage girl. The sudden ending of the movie may leave some viewers unsatisfied, I would argue that it is the perfect ending. Although that chapter of Christine’s life is over and the movie is done, it doesn’t mean Christine’s story is done altogether.
Gerwig makes a statement on the importance of finding your voice
Offbeat and off brand, Greta Gerwig’s 2017 major studio directorial debut ‘Lady Bird’ is a tale of angst, stress and a strive for perfection and acceptance. The 2002-set film showcases Sacramento in all its glory – or perhaps, lack thereof – and puts Academy Award-nominee Saorise Ronan in the driver’s seat to make an impact on audiences.
Think of it as a more mainstream, female ‘Napoleon Dynamite,’ the themes in ‘Bird’ are common ones that many young adults can identify with during the confusing, competitive high school years. At the center of the film is Ronan’s title character (née, Christine), who stops at nothing to escape her hometown for the east coast while battling her mother, Marion (Laurie Metcalf). This rivalry dominates the entire film and helps us understand how one’s environment growing up can have a major impact on their choices in life. Between jumping out of moving vehicles, disrupting assemblies at her Catholic high school and struggling with early love, Lady Bird stumbles her way through senior year in pursuit of being part of the “in crowd.”
Of course, this premise offers Gerwig a lot to work with, and her signature dramedic, deadpan tone is a constant throughout ‘Bird.’ Everything from the way scenes are shot to the quirky music selection are dripping with proverbial eye rolls, and they all work. Sure, there are a few moments that could cause general audiences gasp, but most of them are done in a way that is not mean-spirited or in poor taste. Aside from Ronan’s A+ performance, others in the supporting cast don’t disappoint, from Lucas Hedges to Timothée Chalamet.
‘Lady Bird’ was not a monster hit, but it has the building blocks to become a cult classic for this generation, similar to the way ‘Dynamite’ did nearly 15 years ago, and sets up Gerwig and Ronan to become even bigger stars than they already are.
