I would put Lady Bird on my best movie list for the year with Loving Vincent. Second, but quite good.
I was most impressed with the pacing, editing, tone of the movie. Absolutely perfect.
And if Sairse Ronan wins best actress I would be quite happy.
I would shy away from four stars because of the grating mother. The movie worked at making her sourness complicated, but it didn’t completely work for me.
I also thought the drunk hospital scene toward the end was the only one that didn’t seem natural in the movie. It setup the ending which was good, still.
All in all, a couple really touching, emotional scenes that were low key on-screen but huge in our hearts put this one in the current number two slot for me.
