Lady Bird

Rated R 94 minutes 2017

We might have foreseen Greta Gerwig’s success as an actress-turned-filmmaker – she has written her parts in several entertaining films before. But this smart, compassionate coming-of-age story about a thoughtful high-schooler (Saoirse Ronan) spreading her wings in Sacramento (while wishing she were somewhere else) is astoundingly fresh, as if the genre were brand new. Gerwig’s screenplay is carried aloft by a talented cast: Laurie Metcalf as Lady Bird’s mother, Tracy Letts as her father, Lucas Hedges as her very first boyfriend, Beanie Feldstein as her best friend, Jordan Rodrigues and Marielle Scott as her brother and his girlfriend, Stephen Henderson as a sensitive priest, et al. So Frances Ha was no fluke -- writer-director Gerwig, and actress Ronan, are prodigious screen talents. Highly recommended (93 min., 2017, rated R)
