The Critically Acclaimed Coming-of-Age Comedy Arrives on
Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and DVD March 6 from Lionsgate
SANTA MONICA, CA (February 27, 2018) – The Oscar® nominated* coming-of-age comedy, Lady Bird, arrives on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack (plus DVD and Digital) and DVD March 6 from Lionsgate. From her own semi-autobiographical script and making her solo directorial debut, Greta Gerwig’s (Frances Ha, 20th Century Women) Lady Bird follows a wildly opinionated and adventurous woman as she navigates her way through adulthood trying to find her true identity. Rotten Tomatoes Certified Fresh™, the film stars Oscar® nominee Saoirse Ronan (Best Actress, Brooklyn, 2015; Best Supporting Actress, Atonement, 2007), Primetime Emmy® winner Laurie Metcalf (Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, “Roseanne,” 1992, 1993, 1994), Oscar® nominee Lucas Hedges (Best Supporting Actor, Manchester by the Sea, 2016), Oscar® nominee Timothée Chalamet (Best Actor, Call Me by Your Name, 2017), Odeya Rush (The Giver), Beanie Feldstein (Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising), and Tony Award® winner Tracy Letts (Indignation, The Lovers).
In Lady Bird, Greta Gerwig reveals herself to be a bold new cinematic voice with her directorial debut, excavating both the humor and pathos in the turbulent bond between a mother and her teenage daughter. Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson (Ronan) fights against, but is exactly like, her wildly loving, deeply opinionated and strong-willed mom (Metcalf), a nurse working tirelessly to keep her family afloat after Lady Bird’s father (Letts) loses his job. Set in Sacramento, California, in 2002, amidst a rapidly shifting American economic landscape, Lady Bird is an affecting look at the relationships that shape us, the beliefs that define us, and the unmatched beauty of a place called home.
Produced by Scott Rudin and Eli Bush (The Grand Budapest Hotel, Ex Machina), the home entertainment release of Lady Bird features an audio commentary and featurette, and will be available on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD for the suggested retail price of $39.99 and $29.95, respectively.
