I apologize mum.

Lady Bird, 7.0/10, opens us up to a world that I don’t think has every been captured so beautifully or awkwardly for me. In all honesty, for the first 30 minutes of the film I struggled to adapt to the mindset of a 16 year old girl living in 2002 Sacramento. Understandably, that may be because I’m a 23 year old male living in 2018 England. However, Lady Bird/Christine played by Saoirse Ronan sweetly portrays the struggles of coming of age and the struggles of teenagers growing up in a confused society. The relationship between Lady Bird and pretty much every other character in the film was alluring but the most heartfelt onscreen relationship was definitely the one between her and her mother, played by Laurie Metcalf. When the film finished, I was left wanting to pick up the phone to call my own mum and sincerely apologize for my own teenage angst. Go see this in the cinema before it’s to late.
