Saoirse Ronan soars in first trailer for ‘Lady Bird’ from Greta Gerwig

After a truly rapturous response at the Telluride Film Festival this weekend, A24 drops the trailer for Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut Lady Bird, starring two-time Oscar nominee Saoirse Ronan (Atonement, Brooklyn) and Emmy and Tony winner Laurie Metcalf.

From A24:

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.

The response to Lady Bird from Telluride firmly positions Ronan and Metcalf into the Oscar race in Actress and Supporting Actress and lands writer/director Gerwig into the Original Screenplay and Director conversation.

Lady Bird also stars Lucas Hedges, Timothée Chalamet, Beanie Feldstein, Stephen McKinley Henderson, and Lois Smith. It will be released by A24 on November 10th.

Here is the trailer and poster.

About Erik Anderson

Erik blames his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched them together since he opened his eyes. They also watched Miss Universe religiously every year (the pageantry!) and Erik came to the conclusion that the combination of these two things ultimately led him down the path to obsessing about awards and ACTRESSING. He began at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
