Lady Bird is all set to release in India on March 2, 2018. The film has gotten a number of nominations at all major award ceremonies and has won a few of them. Wondering what’s so special about this coming-of-age drama? Read on to find out.
Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut
Gerwig has co-written Mistress America and Frances Ha with her partner Noah Baumbach but this is the first time she has donned the director’s hat. Greta has won an Oscar nomination in the Best Director category for her work on Lady Bird.
Almost perfect rating
Lady Bird enjoyed a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes for a long time before it got its first negative review. It is still one of the highest rated films of 2017 with both the audience and critics praising it.
Saoirse Ronan’s performance
Saoirse Ronan has won a Golden Globe for her brilliant performance in Lady Bird. The 23-year-old is also one of the frontrunners to take home the Academy Award but most pundits are placing their bets on Frances McDormand for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.
The supporting cast
Laurie Metcalf, Tracy Letts, Lucas Hedges and Timothée Chalamet are exceptional in their roles in Lady Bird. All the actors have put on a great show and Metcalf has won an Oscar nod for playing the protagonist's mother.
