For Your Consideration

Set in Sacramento, California in 2002, amidst a rapidly shifting American economic landscape, LADY BIRD focuses on the loving yet turbulent bond between a mother and her teenage daughter. Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) fights against but is exactly like her deeply caring, highly opinionated and strong-willed mom (Laurie Metcalf), a nurse working tirelessly to keep her family afloat after Lady Bird's father (Tracy Letts) loses his job. Written and directed by Greta Gerwig and featuring an ensemble cast that also includes Lucas Hedges, Timothée Chalamet, Beanie Feldstein, Lois Smith, and Stephen McKinley Henderson, LADY BIRD is a look at the relationships that shape us, the beliefs that define us, and the unmatched beauty of a place called home.
