Lady Bird (2017)

Postby Blue Jackets » Tue Nov 28, 2017 7:25 am

In the early 2000s, an artistically-inclined seventeen year-old comes of age in Sacramento, California.

"Lady Bird" just broke a Rotten Tomatoes record for rave reviews
The record is the most reviews for a film with a perfect 100% on Rotten Tomatoes (170 reviews to be exact, including Armond White).

This is showing in some theaters around me now. Maybe I will catch a showing before it leaves.

Went to this tonight. It was alright but nothing groundbreaking. A good coming of age story with some fun moments. Definitely was going for the artsy fartsy film style.

That's my thought of it too, your typical 'slice of life' movie. I enjoyed Everybody Wants Some! more last year. Jocelyn loved it because she said it nailed every teenage daughter/mother relationship ever. Best friends, to enemies, to best friends in one conversation.

The thing that really stood out to me was the masterful use of DMB.

I really loved this movie. I know the focus on the story was meant to be more between the mom and the daughter, but I sympathized more with the dad and the dynamic he played into both the anxiety of the family and the additional tension between the mother/daughter.

This was very reminiscent of Juno for like 45 min of the movie.
