Lady Bird (2017)

lady_bird_ver2

In 2002, an artistically inclined seventeen-year-old girl comes of age in Sacramento, California. (IMDb)
By and large just a nicely-shot and scored roller-coaster ride of short snippets of authentic, angsty teen life, marvelously written and acted, with as much laugh-out-loud humour (too-cool Kyle is a one-liner gold mine: “I’m trying to live by bartering alone”) as feisty drama (mother-daughter are the headline here; see their opening exchange in the car) and feel-good moments (see the girls at prom). The slower scenes (see post-sex) feel a little awkward in comparison, but maybe that’s the point.
8/10 (Great)
