This was one film I did not expect to enjoy. Mostly because I didn't realise it was a comedy. Don't get me wrong, I love any genre of film if it's a good picture, but I just was not expecting this. 'Lady Bird' is an incredible film that is very down-to-earth and relatable in many aspects. It focuses on the motions of a young adult attempting to find her place in the world and, on her journey, get to university. This film is insane in the sense of fantastic acting from the lead, Saoirse Ronan - but when is she not incredible? Let's be honest. The erratic nature of her story is actually compelling and not 'out-there' at all. In fact, it's one of the best portrayals of modern youth society and struggles I have ever seen. "What if this is the best version?" is something I asked myself after watching when questioning if the film depicted modern youth better than any I have seen. Although the film isn't set exactly in 2018, more so in the early 2000s, not much about teenage life has changed other than mobile technology, so it's still very on-point. Long story short, I love this film and having watched it several times since it came out, it's safe to say that it is very enjoyable and people of nearly all ages will find something in this that they love.
