Lady Bird Impressions

If I had seen Lady Bird last year, it would have topped my Top Ten Movies of 2017 list. I have spent the last week trying to wrack my brain for a movie that has resonated with me more and I came up short. It would only take changing a handful of details to turn the story of Christine "Lady Bird" McPherson into that of my own senior year. Lady Bird struck me with such an overwhelming and visceral sense of genuine nostalgia that it seems nearly impossible for any movie going forward to ring as true to my own experience as this one about a Catholic school girl in Sacramento.
