Perth, how you doing? Let AccessReel “weather” you for a moment. The Bureau of Meteorology (a.k.a The B.O.M.) have forecast some awesome conditions this weekend. Outdoor cinema weather. Why not catch LADY BIRD (review) and discover why it has received five nominations in the upcoming Oscars? Just to remind you; Best Picture, Best Actress – Saoirse Ronan, Best Supporting Actress – Laurie Metcalf, Best Director – Greta Gerwig and Best Original Screenplay – Greta Gerwig.
So what’s it all about? The helpful blurb has this to say:
Christine McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) — affectionately known and self-proclaimed as Lady Bird — is an ambitious, bright, and precocious high school senior. Longing to break free of suburban Sacramento, she dreams of a different life full of east coast skyscrapers, Ivy League universities, and cosmopolitan culture.
With modest grades and no alumni connections to speak of, Lady Bird needs extracurriculars to beef up her college applications. Joining the drama club leads to new friends (sometimes at the expense of old ones), first loves, and a social life in full swing. Dealing with her critical mother and succeeding at math do not come as easily.
That’s today, Saturday 10th February and Sunday 11th February at the Luna Outdoor. Details here.
