Film: Lady Bird
Saoirse Ronan stars as self-styled ‘Lady Bird’ of Greta Gerwig’s eagerly-anticipated and critically-acclaimed debut. Set in Sacramento, Gerwig’s own hometown, the film follows Lady Bird as she teeters on the brink of adulthood, struggling to navigate her relationship with her mother (Laurie Metcalf) during last summer at home before college.
Nominated for Best Picture, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay in this year’s Oscars.
“Greta Gerwig’s feature debut as a writer-director is a gloriously funny and wistfully autobiographical coming-of-age comedy.” – The Guardian
Women in Film
In the centenary year of the 1918 suffrage act, celebrating women’s voices has never been more important. With this in mind, we present a season dedicated entirely to women in film. All the films in this season are directed or co-directed by women, and most are female-focused in their narrative.
