Longing to leave for the bright lights of the East Coast, self-titled Lady Bird gets into a spot of trouble as she navigates the murky waters of familial relationships and battles with her volatile emotions. 

'In Ronan's marvellous performance, tough and transparent at the same time, we can see the blurred outlines of the equally assured filmmaker behind her,' reads one review.
