A: Not at all. Lady Bird, a crack­ling com­ing-of-age com­edy from writer-di­rec­tor Greta Ger­wig, 34, stars Saoirse Ro­nan, 23, as Christine “Lady Bird” McPher­son, a young woman whose am­bi­tions are too big for her Cal­i­for­nia home­town. The movie, in se­lect the­aters this week­end and open­ing wider through Thanks­giv­ing, has been get­ting rave re­views and was in­spired by events from Ger­wig’s own teen years in Sacra­mento. You may re­mem­ber Ro­nan from her Os­car-nom­i­nated role in Brook­lyn and Ger­wig from 20th Cen­tury Women.
