As much as I loved Lady Bird and Gerwig's work in general, I wasn't looking forward to this. Mainly because we've had so many versions of it already.But this turned out to be my favorite of the adaptations. Via the performances, the filmmaking, the way the plot is given to us in a way that makes emotional sense rather than narrative, this is a period piece that feels so vivid and refreshing. Goes to prove that no matter how many times a story is repeated, what matters is the perspective from which it is retold.
