Review of 'Lady Bird'
I can't believe this entirely conventional teen-coming-of-age/mother-daughter movie got such rave reviews. It was OK, in a dull and predictable sort of way, with little critical perspective on anything. Our heroine has a bit of under-age sex with her boyfriend, pretends to be richer than she is to impress the cool attractive girl at her Catholic school (of course, in the UK you can't pretend to be posher than you are without major deception, because everyone can tell), has spats with her mum. It's all just a bit ho hum, and much too long.
Watched at the Vue in Stroud...I paid real money to see this.
