I loved Lady Bird. It’s like this perfect little film where all the elements just come together and work so well. Everything fits and it’s smart and touching and familiar and true. I was scared because of all the hype that surrounded it but when I finally got to see it, I understood immediately what it was all about and why.
It’s movies like Lady Bird that reminds us why we need ‘smaller’ films in the cinema too. Yes, it’s not some big budget blockbuster film but it’s the dimension of a theater screen that makes the ordinary extraordinary. Magnified in scope by a huge screen brings proper focus and perspective to our own lives.
This is the power of cinema and director and writer Greta Gerwig really accomplishes so much by turning this story into a movie to be released in the cinemas. It’s quite an amazing feat and I am so happy to have seen it.
