Greta Gerwig's Catholic high school is hosting a "Lady Bird"-themed Academy Awards party Sunday, in honor of the first-time Oscar nominee". The movie is a love story to her home city of Sacramento, Calif., and got a total of five nominations, including Best Picture.
Ronan is really one simply honest actress. (In one of the film's most disturbing scenes, the ever-desperate Larry goes on a long-shot job interview only to find himself competing with his own son). This all being done behind Marion's (Metcalf) back to avoid her opposition to the entire idea. She seems so naturally quirky, her character's idiosyncrasies do not look put on.
The coming-of-age tale Lady Bird captures the quintessential life of an early '00s teenager.
While Lady Bird is discovering herself - both intellectually and emotionally, her relationship with each and every one is not easy, but it provides the film with excellent dramatic moments. Her lead act is beautifully supported by the wonderful Laurie Metcalf, who plays Lady Bird's emotionally constrained mother. An excellent singer and dancer (she dreams of a drama degree in NYC) she lands a bit role in the school production of The Tempest and isn't jealous at all her podgy best friend who sings Francis of Assisi's Make me a Channel of Your Peace bags a plum role. No disrespect to supporting actress front-runner Allison Janney - whose scenery-chewing performance in I, Tonya stole Metcalf's awards momentum - but the latter's ability to wordlessly communicate emotion is unparalleled.
"Don't you think maybe they are the same thing, love and attention?" While chronicling Lady Bird's coming of age, the film simultaneously dissects the intimate yet complicated relationship between a mother and daughter, both equally headstrong.
Like in Baumbach's films, NY is at the core of Lady Bird, but in ways that are more symbolic than literal. He is the calming presence in their turbulent household. The Oscar contender marked the first feature film that Greta Gerwig has written and directed solo.
However, if you were to demand that I pick a decisive "Best of the Year" film, I'd have to go with Greta Gerwig's charming, effervescent, brutally heartbreaking "Lady Bird". An image of the cover appeared online Thursday along with an article about Gerwig, her film and her role in the increasing influence women are having in Hollywood. The one constant, however, is that while the major studios became even more obsessed with tentpole franchise films based on comic book characters, it fell to the smaller, more creative independent films to remind us of just how wondrous cinema can still be.
