About the film

Director: Greta Gerwig
Actors: Saoirse Ronan, Laurie Metcalf, Tracy Letts
Greta Gerwig’s impressive directorial debut stars Saoirse Ronan as a seventeen year old desperate to get away from her Californian town and Catholic high school in order to be somebody – she’s just not quite sure what kind of somebody she wants to be yet. Her difficult relationship with her mother (Laurie Metcalf) propels her to act out - trying out new friends and sexually experimenting with two very different boys (Lucas Hedges and Timothée Chalamet). Gerwig crafts a masterful study of that period of life for teenagers when adulthood and freedom seems so close and yet so far.
