Lady Bird (2018) – A Revisited Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Lady Bird is a surprise.  Arriving on the back of a near perfect Rotten Tomatoes score and a bundle of great reviews, it’s fair to say this usually isn’t my kinda of film.  What a surprise then that Lady Bird is a total joy to watch – an authentic, honest and at times heart breaking coming of age story which leaves behind the schmaltz and instead delivers likeable, real characters doing the things real teenagers do.  Is it a near 100% worthy film… maybe not but it’s a bloody good one regardless.

Best Bit: Saoirse Ronan is superb

Cinema, Stream, Avoid: Cinema

If You Liked this Try: Stand By Me, The Breakfast Club, Boyhood

8 out of 10 stars
