Take Two: “Lady Bird” (R)

Actress Greta Gerwig steps behind the camera and, as a writer/director, proves her mettle. Russ and Susan agree that “Lady Bird” is a beautifully acted, written and directed coming-of-age story set in the early 2000s. Saoirse Ronan plays a young girl coping with adolescence in a Catholic school in Sacramento, CA. Laurie Metcalf is her put upon mom.
