  • Lady Bird

Greta Gerwig's directorial debut has earned rave reviews and leading star Saoirse Ronan has been tipped for an Oscar nomination next year.

It sounds like your run of the mill coming-of-age story, but the reaction from critics is evidence enough that this is a very special film. Even Armond White, a known contrarian who tanked Toy Story 3's flawless score, was forced to bow to Lady Bird's supremacy, acquiescing that "the film's conflicts are surprisingly touching".

We don't know how to put this, but Lady Bird is kind of a big deal.

"Lady Bird is nothing short of tremendous, a wise film about how two people deal with ambivalence", wrote Kyle Turner in his New York Film Festival review of the film for Paste. According to Rotten Tomatoes, "Toy Story 2" - released in 1999 - set the record with 163 Fresh Reviews.

In other words, it is still possible that a rogue reviewer could tarnish Lady Bird's ideal score, though the huge number of positive reviews the film has already compiled would still easily make it one of 2017's best-reviewed movies.

Gerwig called the movie's record-setting Rotten Tomatoes score "completely unbelievable and so incredibly appreciated by the entire team that made Lady Bird" in a statement to Rotten Tomatoes. That there has been such a warm reception is a dream come true.

The film has been making steady inroads into the awards season, bagging trophies at the Gotham Awards and finding a spot on the National Board of Review's top ten films of 2017 list.

Even Armond White, the known contrarian who destroyed Toy Story 3′s ideal score couldn't help but applaud Lady Bird, admitting that "the film's conflicts are surprisingly touching".
