After writing and collaborating with filmmaker Noah Baumbach on the acclaimed New York-set films "Frances Ha" and "Mistress America," actress Greta Gerwig takes a firm step into scripting and directing her first solo effort.

In what appears to be a semi-biographical account of Gerwig's awkward and confusing teen years as a Catholic school girl, "Lady Bird" is a coming-of-age dramedy that focuses on the contentious relationship between a young Californian misfit (played by Saoirse Ronan, from "Brooklyn" and The "Grand Budapest Hotel") and her strong-minded mother (Emmy-and-Tony-winner Laurie Metcalf, "Roseanne" and "A Doll's House, Part 2").

The cast also includes Tracy Letts (Wiener-Dog), Timothee Chalamet (Call Me by Your Name), Beanie Feldstein (Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising), Stephen McKinley Henderson (Fences), Lois Smith (Marjorie Prime), and Oscar-nominated "Manchester by the Sea" actor Lucas Hedges as Ronan's wannabe boyfriend.

Currently scheduled to open in theaters on November 10th, "Lady Bird" had just premiered to strong reviews at the 2017 Telluride Film Festival. It's also set to screen at TIFF this week and next month at the New York Film Festival.

synopsis:
In Lady Bird, Greta Gerwig reveals herself to be a bold new cinematic voice with her directorial debut, excavating both the humor and pathos in the turbulent bond between a mother and her teenage daughter. Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) fights against but is exactly like her wildly loving, deeply opinionated and strong-willed mom (Laurie Metcalf), a nurse working tirelessly to keep her family afloat after Lady Bird's father (Tracy Letts) loses his job. Set in Sacramento, California in 2002, amidst a rapidly shifting American economic landscape, Lady Bird is an affecting look at the relationships that shape us, the beliefs that define us, and the unmatched beauty of a place called home.
