Prior, Feldstein starred in Greta Gerwig’s Academy Award-nominated coming-of-age comedy LADY BIRD, opposite Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf. The film made its world premiere at the 2017 Telluride Film Festival and later screened at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival. The film received massive critical acclaim and won the 2018 Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy. It was also awarded the 2018 AFI Award for Movie of the Year and named one of the National Board of Review’s Top Ten Films of 2017.
