Lady Bird is available in: English [Original] on Netflix Canada
A California high school student plans to escape from her family and small town by going to college in New York, much to the disapproval of wildly loving, deeply opinionated and strong-willed mother.
An intrepid high schooler in Sacramento undergoes the trials of love, family and self-discovery as she dreams of escaping to college in the East Coast.
If anything the movie was saying that those who are rich aren’t as unexclusive as those without think, and they are just like everyone else. Just as the main protagonist was rebelling against her life to gain acceptance, so were the kids of the rich in that they are also just seeking acceptance. That doing anything to get your dreams won’t lead to satisfaction as life on the other side isn’t any better, you just end up hurting others by getting there that way, and in hindsight blinded you from what you already had.
I guess the movie had something to say after all.
★★½ – Not dull, nor was it very entertaining.
Normally this is where I would say something along the lines of, “It’s just because this isn’t my sort of movie” except that last year _Edge of Seventeen_ dealt with virtually identical subject matter and that was one of my favourite movies of the year.
So I’m just wrong I guess?
_Final rating:★½: – Boring/disappointing. Avoid where possible._
