I actually just recently watched this movie, and might I say, this definitely deserved 100% on Rotten Tomatoes (beating its 99% at the moment). As a sum up, this movie is one for the books as it is about a girl named Christine, who is struggling with a poor family, and dealing with keeping friends and good relationships. The idea of this movie was so great because so many people can relate to it. The plot takes turns and twists that aren't really expected. Christine wants to be a free adult and deal with life herself, which causes her to avoid her parents (especially her mom) more and more as her mother can't accept the lying and deceit that she receives daily from Christine (or Lady Bird, as that is what she wanted to be called). I am not a very big fan of the cast (especially Timothee Chalamet), but even he played his role so well I honestly felt as if I was standing right next to Christine, in her shoes. Making a teenage R-rated drama as this one is very risky considering how the audience portrays teen R-rated movies to be over-sexualized and crude, but besides minimal joking and one scene, this movie was quite the opposite. For Lady Bird, I give this movie a 4.5 out of 5 stars. I very rarely give a movie 5 stars because I realize there is a big difference between people's opinions of films, so I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars. The movie was great, but minus a few questionable moments that could have been avoided, the film was one of the best I have ever seen, and most people can say the same.
