February isn't even over yet, and Netflix has already put up removal notices for some of the movies that will be leaving the platform in March. Sadly, one of those movies is the Golden Globe Award-winning film Lady Bird.
It's a comedy-drama film written and directed by well-known filmmaker Greta Gerwig. Everyone pretty much knows who Gerwig is at this point, but for the people who don't, she's best known for co-writing and directing the fantasy comedy film and massive hit Barbie. She was also the creative behind the Academy Award-winning movie Little Women.
When Lady Bird hit theaters back in November 2017, tons of people went to go see it. In fact, it was a box office hit, making $79 million worldwide against a $10 million budget. Critics had so many positive things to say about the film, applauding the movie's screenplay and direction and some of the performances.
It even went on to be nominated for five Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Director. Although no Academy Awards were won, the film did manage to take home two Golden Globes at the 75th Golden Globe Awards. They were Best Motion Picture (Musical or Comedy) and Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy.
The movie takes place in Sacramento, California from fall 2002 to fall 2003. It tells a coming-of-age story of an outspoken high school senior named Christine "Lady Bird" McPherson. She dreams of one day leaving her hometown to go to a prestigious college on the East Coast, but her strong-willed mother is determined to keep her in Sacramento. Over the course of her senior year, Lady Bird finds herself navigating her turbulent relationship with her mother, experiencing her first romance, and going through a journey of self-discovery.
Golden Globe winner Saoirse Ronan stars in the leading role as Christine "Lady Bird" McPherson, while Emmy winner Laurie Metcalf plays Marion McPherson, Lady Bird's protective mother. The rest of the cast includes Tracy Letts, Lucas Hedges, Timothée Chalamet, Beanie Feldstein, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Lois Smith, and others.
