Saoirse Ro­nan is equal parts en­dear­ing and an­noy­ing as a snarky but vul­ner­a­ble 17-year-old who is desperate to es­cape her dull sub­ur­ban roots

(as she sees them) in Cal­i­for­nia and go to col­lege on the East Coast. Set in 2002, this be­guil­ing com­ing-of-age com­edy marks the di­rect­ing de­but of in­die queen Greta Ger­wig. The story re­volves around the hero­ine’s prickly love-hate re­la­tion­ship with her mother (Lau­rie Met­calf), and is is whip-smart, achingly hon­est, and pierc­ingly funny. Also on Sun­day-fri­day. 2017,15, 94MIN

SAOIRSE WAS TIRED OF SIT­TING AROUND WAIT­ING FOR LIFE TO HAP­PEN
