Bringing Saoirse Ronan back to the big screen in the leading role of Christine ‘Lady Bird’ McPherson is Greta Gerwig’s upcoming 2018 movie release and directorial debut, Lady Bird. This week, a fantastic trailer for the film has now been revealed which you can check out below, along with a new poster:
Telling the story of the titular character, the film will see ‘Lady Bird’ fight against her strong-willed mother (Laurie Metcalf); a nurse who’s working harder than ever before to help keep her family together, after the loss of her partner’s (Tracy Letts) job. ‘Lady Bird’ is more like her mom than she would care to admit, with the pair sharing a number of infectious personality traits and an affinity for people.
Taking place in Sacramento, California in 2002, the movie recalls the rapidly changing American economic landscape, reflecting how that time was such a tumultuous one for so many and delving into the relationships that helped shape and define Americans at the time.
The leading cast are joined by the likes of Lucas Hedges, Timothée Chalamet, Beanie Feldstein, Lois Smith, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Odeya Rush, Jordan Rodrigues and Marielle Scott, with Scott Rudin, Eli Bush and Evelyn O’Neill serving as producers.
At a time when the movie theatres are stacked to the brim with action-adventures and movies full of violence and aggression, Lady Bird could be the perfect balance, bringing a more human and personable film to proceedings.
Lady Bird hits cinemas across the UK in February, 2018.
