In my house, when we prepare for our family movie night each week, we like to ensure that everyone gets a chance to contribute titles that they would like to share with the family. Where we take turns, allowing each person to share what they come across when it is their week to share. We also find that when it comes to choosing those titles, that sometimes it is one that more than one in the home want to share. Which for myself and my daughter, we found the new movie, Lady Bird, to be a title that both of us wanted to share on family movie night. So when we were sent a copy to review, we were very excited to add it to our family movie night line up.
With the movie, Lady Bird, you get the story of a teenage girl who, like many kids her age, is struggling to find her path in life. The girl is a senior in a Catholic high School, who wants more than what her current situation offers her, where she is a kid from what she sees, as a very boring life from the other side of the tracks. She longs to go to the east coast, where she would go to an Ivy League school and live in a city of culture, but finds that there are many obstacles in her way of that dream, one being her mom.
Along the way of navigating her path, she finds romance, friendships that drift apart, and a lot of drama when it comes to the home life, especially when her mom finds out that she had been applying at colleges that were not local. The choices made, tear them apart, but after coming across letters from her mom, she finds herself and embraces who she is, as well as rebuilds the relationship she had thought lost with her mom. Bringing us a movie that offered not just a great story line, but one that offers both the comedy and drama that both my daughter and I seek in the movies we enjoy. Making Lady Bird, a great choice to add to your next movie night when you head out today to bring home your copy on Blu-Ray and or DVD!
