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
