    I love this woman but that movie absolutely stunk in my opinion. It was a miserable attempt at creating a teen indie film with no substance to it at all. It was basically a little white teen girl hating the city she grew up in (still unsure what was so bad about it), can't wait to move to a "cultured city" like New York, and when she finally gets there she realises she misses her hometown. Throw in some cliches like romantic attempts at losing virginity, the random gay kid coming out of the closet, etc.. The best bits are all in the trailer, making it look like it could be an interesting story, but ends up displaying nothing original. Everything seems rushed for the sake of inserting as many cliches as possible, instead of delving into certain issues to draw in the audience. When there's so many beautiful creative coming of age films like 'Me, Earl & The Dying Girl', 'Juno', 'Brick', 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower', 'Mysterious Skin', 'Moonlight', etc., how does this one get so much praise?

    Sorry, but I found Lady Bird to be the most overrated and pretentious film of 2017.
    Just another coming of age tale of a self absorbed spoiled brat who most people find annoying these days.
    Thumbsucker was a MUCH better film.

    I’m from Sacramento and I am stunned that she is actually Irish
    In the movie she sounds just like most people I grew up around...
    The money is spectacular by the way.

    I'm so annoyed when people cannot spell names right, it's not even hard to find out how you spell it. But I can understand pronunciation of names, it can be really hard. Love that she has stuck by her name, makes her more unique and special, and connects well to her heritage :)

    Saoirse’s best role was as a kid in Atonement. She was amazing! I liked Lady Bird and all but it started to feel repetitive in some parts. She made the movie work though! She’s one of my favorite actresses.

    As someone who's just a year older than her, I think she's the best actress of our generation! She does not get as much recognition as she should. She's just brilliant! Love her. She seems like such an interesting person too, I would love to just be able to grab a coffee with her.
    The movie was great!

    Australia can not see this movie, legally. It disappoints me that the US- is so self involved- I have been watching SC but I am starting to realise I don't have time for this. As a child I went to church but realise many people on TV US (I can tell a liar) don't believe in God, in Australia they don't bother one way or the other and they don't care- who cares what you think! It is 47 degrees this afternoon, time to go to the beach tomorrow! Enjoy life!

    Gerwig’s great. Saoirse was great in Brooklyn but spellcheck can’t quite comprehend her. Deliberate cornball stereotypes, Black, white, Irish or otherwise, is part of SNL & used to the main theme of In Living Color. The latter can’t be duplicated today but someone’s trying. Like the Ghostbuster2016 SNL crew.

    When Saoirse was young, she accused James McAvoy of improper behaviour towards her cousin when the real perpetrator was who?
