“I’ve tried – and failed – to think of another film that so sharply and humorously shows what it’s like to be a teenage girl.”
– “Suddenly, A Shot Rang Out”
“The real surprise is just how honest and personal this film proves to be — again, par for the course with Gerwig, and yet, fairly rare among first-time directors, who haven’t had nearly so much practice simply being real.”
– Peter Debruge, Variety
“‘Lady Bird’ consolidates the style and sensibility of a generation caught between the last gasp of the 20th century and post-9/11 disillusionment like nothing else before. It looks back on that moment less to relish memories of a bygone era than to commune with its impact on young adults today.”
-Eric Kohn, Indie Wire
