Lady Bird

With a sigh of relief I can say that this wasn’t as bad as I anticipated.

That may sound a bit odd given the acclaim with which it has been received, but I have struggled to enjoy Greta Gerwig in front of the camera, and had a really hard time watching Frances Ha, so I was actually dreading watching Lady Bird.

What I have concluded is that for me, Gerwig is much better behind the camera than in front.

Although I didn’t connect with the story in the same way that many have (Lady Bird’s circumstances and relationships aren’t mine and I think you have to have a similar experience to get the full impact of the story), I can appreciate what’s going on.

And while we all love Timotheé Chalamet, please give Lucas Hedges something good to do – I really like his work.
