Excellent movie! Seeing Saoirse Ronan playing the character usually being played by Gerwig was a big improvement. Gerwig is fun to watch but Saoirse is a revelation.

I have mixed feelings about this one. This is a coming of age story about a young woman in her last year of high school. I love that is a female-centric story, with very strong, complex female lead characters. The writing is realistic and clever. The acting is outstanding and natural. Saoirse Ronan is brilliant and mesmerizing. The problem for me was I didn't really like these characters very much. I found them self-absorbed and kind of annoying and silly. Overall I liked it as a film. There's lots of good stuff here and I was glad I watched it, but in real life I wouldn't really want to hang out with these people.

I just wasted 91 minutes of my life watching this movie. It was like watching the highlight reel of a year in the life of a high school senior. Much of the dialogue was unintelligible (even the closed captioning couldn't keep up). I can't believe that there was so much hype about this movie for the Oscars (or I can believe it because rarely does a great movie actually win).

Laurie Metcalf and Saoirse Ronan excel in this mother-daughter coming-of-age tale. The rebellious and self-centered Saoirse is in her senior year at the local Catholic high school. She yearns to leave Sacramento's small-town atmosphere, her economically strapped family, and especially her mom. A perceptive nun suggests the theater as a way of channeling her frustration, which opens the door to dating, a new set of friends, and the possibility of college in the East.

There are many fine films that deal with this subject, this dimension. This one is drab. Though there is clearly intent from the actors, these are redundant portrayals of the classic characters found in this bend of cinematic realism. . Really nothing new or special. No Art. It's got the fingerprints of directoritis.

Don't know if it's wonderful or not, couldn't understand dialogue, no subtitles either, gave up.

My partner and I stopped watching this film after about 25 minutes. Not interesting nor feeling like there was any point or justification to continue spending more time with this film.

I do like cast for most part, I do agree that this film was over-rated. I was disappointed in the story line was very basic & predictable, which I dislike. It Left me bummed that I rented it.

Many inquiring and humorous quotes have been posted in IMDb. Many thanks to the contributors. The first quote listed in the site hits the spot on the relationship between many teens and their parents (added three lines* for full context):
Lady Bird: I wish that you liked me.*
Marion: Of course I love you.*
Lady Bird: But do you like me?*
(Conversation continued as the first quote in IMDb page)
Marion: I want you to be the very best version of yourself that you can be.
Lady Bird: What if this is the best version?
