Lady Bird Saoirse Ronan trailerIn between festival screenings, A24 has dropped the first trailer for Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut, Lady Bird. Gerwig has been a major force within the indie scene, but now brings her talents behind the camera. Her debut feels very much like a spiritual successor to 20th Century Women, and you can see Gerwig’s unmistakable voice and rhythm throughout. At the very least, this looks like a distinct entry into the coming-of-age genre, one that brings a pained but funny look at what its like to grow up and adapt to the shifting world around us.

Lady Bird releases November 10 and brings a heavyweight cast featuring Saoirse Ronan, Tracy Letts, Laura Mefcalf, and more with it.
