The cast, led by Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf, are all fantastic, charming, and funny. How can you not fall in love with this film?

Metcalf brings to the table her love, her toughness, and her dedication for what could have been another standard "mom" role and made it her own.

While this kind of film is not normally in my wheelhouse, it touches on so many subjects that even I was moved and can see why it stood so high during awards season.
Lady Bird is the name (self-given) by Christine McPherson (Ronan), a senior that is adrift, rebellious, always fighting with her well-meaning, hard-working but somewhat condescending mother (Laurie Metcalf). The Sacramento teen wants nothing more than to leave California behind and …
