- First Trailer for Greta Gerwig's Directorial Debut “Lady Bird” Starring Saoirse Ronan
- A24 unveiled a new trailer for American comedy drama film "Lady Bird" directed by American actress Greta Gerwig. The film stars Saoirse Ronan, Laurie Metcalf, Tracy Letts, Lucas Hedges, Timothée Chalamet, Beanie Feldstein, Stephen McKinley Henderson and Lois Smith.
The film is the feature directorial debut of Greta Gerwig and premiered at the Telluride Film Festival on September 3, 2017. The film is scheduled to open November 10th.
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.
Greta Gerwig played the title role in the 2015 drama "Maggie's Plan", and had supporting roles in the 2016 films "Jackie" and "20th Century Women". This time, she made her solo directorial debut with "Lady Bird", but she previously co-directed "Nights and Weekends" with Joe Swanberg.
Also, Saoirse Ronan appeared in English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran's music video for "Galway Girl" in April.
