Why "Lady Bird" Meant so Much to Me

 

Last week I watched “Lady Bird” with my boyfriend. The entire time I watched the movie I kept exclaiming how much it reminded me of things that had happened between my mother and I. I told him that I couldn’t believe they had captured what it’s like to be a teenager and how you speak and behave with your mother. He kept telling me that he didn’t have anything to compare it to because he is not in a mother/daughter relationship.

I want to thank Greta Gerwig, the director and writer of “Lady Bird”. I never thought that I would see such an accurate, not cliched representation of all of the stupid things I did and said to my mother when I was a teenager. This movie made me laugh and cry and touched me. I am glad that I watched it and I recommend it to everyone. After I watched this movie I called my mom and I thanked her too, for years of putting up with me when I was an immature teenager.
