Lady Bird, the writing and directorial début of Greta Gerwig, looks like great fun.
Saoirse Ronan, late of Brooklyn, plays “Lady Bird,” a character based on Gerwig’s own younger persona. Laurie Metcalf, coming off a Tony Award Best Actress win for A Doll’s House, Part 2. reportedly steals the show as her mother.
Supporting are Tracy Letts, Lucas Hedges, Timothée Chalamet, who’s certainly having A Year.
The film is scheduled for a 10 November 2017 release.
