Sunday 1st April 2018
The Oscar® nominated coming-of-age comedy, Lady Bird, arrives on Blu-ray and DVD 2nd July 2018 from Universal Pictures (UK).
From her own semi-autobiographical script and making her solo directorial debut, Greta Gerwig's (Frances Ha, 20th Century Women) Lady Bird follows a wildly opinionated and adventurous woman as she navigates her way through adulthood trying to find her true identity. Rotten Tomatoes Certified FreshT, the film stars Oscar® nominee Saoirse Ronan (Best Actress, Brooklyn, 2015; Best Supporting Actress, Atonement, 2007), Primetime Emmy® winner Laurie Metcalf (Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, Roseanne, 1992, 1993, 1994), Oscar® nominee Lucas Hedges (Best Supporting Actor, Manchester by the Sea, 2016), Oscar® nominee Timothée Chalamet (Best Actor, Call Me by Your Name, 2017), Odeya Rush (The Giver), Beanie Feldstein (Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising), and Tony Award® winner Tracy Letts (Indignation, The Lovers).
In Lady Bird, Greta Gerwig reveals herself to be a bold new cinematic voice with her directorial debut, excavating both the humour and pathos in the turbulent bond between a mother and her teenage daughter. Christine "Lady Bird" McPherson (Ronan) fights against, but is exactly like, her wildly loving, deeply opinionated and strong-willed mom (Metcalf), a nurse working tirelessly to keep her family afloat after Lady Bird's father (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.
Produced by Scott Rudin and Eli Bush (The Grand Budapest Hotel, Ex Machina), the home entertainment release of Lady Bird features an audio commentary and featurette.
