LADY BIRD movie review

Reasons why I like Lady Bird:

*Inclusivity. The title character is a young teenage girl. She is spirited and is like she can take on the world. Sometimes, the protagonists are rebels. Coincidently, it opens a week before International Women’s’ Day.

* It is not your typical teenage movie. It diverts from the usual wholesome, mainstream, teenage movies. It requires a mature audience to appreciate this movie. It also tackles sex issues among teenagers as well as handling relationships within the family.

*Some comedy punch lines may be offensive to conservative Christians. I am glad I am not conservative even though I go to church every Sunday.

*Saoirse Ronan is nominated for best actress. Not all young girls get nominated for the Oscars along with the veteran actresses.

* The characters made a mark in the movie individually. You will be amused with the variety of characteristics and they contribute well in the story.

*It is well cast. Not all are popular like Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf (better known as Sheldon Cooper’s mom in The Big Bang Theory) but the cast performed their roles well.

*It also stars Timothee Chalamet, another Oscar nominee for Best Actor for the movie, Call Me By Your Name.

Lady Bird is an Ayala Cinema exclusive. Released by Universal Pictures and distributed in the Philippines by Columbia Pictures. For more quality movie reviews without copy-paste press materials, follow this blog and like L.E.N.S. blogs on Facebook.
