Featured Film:

Lady Bird in Limited Release

I haven’t seen any of the big new movies out this week (Last Flag Flying, Three Billboards, Thirst Street, The Work), but the one I most want to see is Lady Bird. Ryan’s seen it though, and here’s what he has to say: A24 continues their remarkable streak of films that played at the New York Film Festival and focus on young people with Greta Gerwig’s solo directorial debut Lady Bird. While it has clear strands of DNA from Gerwig’s prior great films co-written with Noah Baumbach, the movie possesses a easy sprightliness all its own. Starring Saoirse Ronan as the eponymous high school student over her senior year as she navigates filial, romantic, and platonic relationships in the staid environs of Sacramento, it is one of the sweetest and most deeply felt films of the year. It’s playing now at the Egyptian, Lincoln Square, Thornton Place and the Seattle 10, which used to be the Metro and probably should be again.
