Now, before the pitchforks come out and the yelling starts, for calling this fabulous, gorgeous and incredibly talented woman “awkward,” hear us out.
Also, get a load of this:
Not so harsh-sounding now, is it?
But look: we actually mean this as a compliment. First, the outfit is slightly goofy and sloppy, but we LOVE it. It’s fun, funky, loaded with personality and color – and best of all, it really suits her. Second, someone needs to step up and be the avatar of awkward girls now that Kristen Stewart has morphed from being the quintessential template of Awkward Girl Chic to being a widely celebrated international movie star and lite butch Chanel supermodel. In other words, K Stew’s gotten too fabulous to hold on to the title. It’s time for Miss Saiorse be the patron saint of quirky, goofy, slightly off gals everywhere. She wears it really well.
LOVE those shoes.
Written and Directed by Greta Gerwig
Starring Saoirse Ronan, Laurie Metcalf, Tracy Letts, Lucas Hedges, Timothée Chalamet, Beanie Feldstein, Stephen McKinley Henderson, and Lois Smith
In Lady Bird, Greta Gerwig reveals herself to be a bold new cinematic voice with her directorial debut, excavating both the humor and pathos in the turbulent bond between a mother and her teenage daughter. Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) fights against but is exactly like her wildly loving, deeply opinionated and strong-willed mom (Laurie Metcalf), a nurse working tirelessly to keep her family afloat after Lady Bird’s father (Tracy Letts) loses his job. Set in Sacramento, California in 2002, amidst a rapidly shifting American economic landscape, Lady Bird is an affecting look at the relationships that shape us, the beliefs that define us, and the unmatched beauty of a place called home.
