LADY BIRD (M)
FOR YOUR LIFE TO GET MOVING, FIRST YOU MUST STOP AND GROW, US, 92 MIN Do not miss one of the most graceful, funny, alert and alive coming-of-age pictures you will ever see. “I wish I could live through something,” says “Lady Bird” McPherson (played by the incomparable Saoirse Ronan) on the eve of her final year of high school. And you will be living through it alongside her. Being a one-of-a-kind isn’t doing her any favours in her home town, and the same goes for a fractious relationship with her perpetually dissatisfied mother (Laurie Metcalf).
