From the bird to make an elephant and inflate to the size of the globe
“You can’t put a loaded gun on the stage if no one means to shoot it. Can’t promise anything.”/A. P. Chekhov.
A teenage girl who requires everyone to call herself”Lady bird” among other things is in her senior year. The school is Catholic with priests and nuns. They have problems, children are naughty, the RCC is in crisis, they are too kind, and one son killed himself with heroin. Her father is depressed, old and out of work. Mother works as a nurse for seven is afraid of poverty and generally hopeless because she grew up in an alcoholic family. The girlfriend of the heroine suffers from excess weight and therefore she has no boyfriend. Lady bird’s friend is gay and afraid to come out.
She didn’t mean much to the other guy. Stepbrother graduated from College but could only get a job in a cafe. Still have “like” the sister, who sheltered and hid from the harsh natural parents. In America, the terrorist attacks of 2001 died down, and this is also not a holiday.If there is some acute social problem, and it is not in the list above, then I just missed it because of the unresponsiveness of my heart. But it is necessarily present in the film. If we talk about the “Chekhov’s Gun” in the film, clearly claiming to be Stanislavsky’s principles, then there is a whole Arsenal of all calibers hung on the walls. But the viewer can feel completely safe. From the fact that none of them is not something that will not shoot, and not even move. It’s just the setting and the context against which Lady bird will graduate from high school and go to College. Of course here is not simply so, will graduate and will go, much more difficult: will hand over tests, will tighten mathematics, goes on conversation on career guidance, will send letters, goes on graduation, will receive refusals and invitations, goes with father in Bank to lift money on relocation, will sit down in team bus and potolkavshis with suitcases in subway will drive in a Dorm, where It seems nothing is forgotten. Oh Yes, she will also be credited with the driving test, although we will not see the intense exam itself.Posters for the film and covers for the discs of the film seem to refer us to the theme of God-seeking. And indeed the film, with its mundane narrative, refers us to Franny Salenger, with her conflict of inexperienced maximalism and spiritual readiness. But no more than a significant nod aside.Nevertheless, the American tragicomedy Greta Gerwig, who made her debut as a Director, if not managed to collect all possible awards, it was nominated for them. The delight of critics is difficult to describe, all the different ratings under a hundred. What makes the film so wonderful? Nothing, it’s a blatant overblown hack. Where are the awards? Well, first of all, this is of course because it is the right to a female view of the problems and women’s creativity. Indeed, creativity should not be only creativity in the form of a dialogue between Superman and the Universe, with super-tasks and super-meanings. It is necessary to give the right to sound creativity from under a warm cozy plaid.Secondly, it is necessary to give Oscars and Globes not only to the Hollywood bonzes mired in debauchery and mutual responsibility, and to their favorites who jumped out on a scene through a bed. It should be noted and other movies. And third, the problems of poor Americans must be brought to the surface. Yes!!! I almost forgot, you must understand that these are very poor people. They don’t have new cars, they don’t have houses in the most prestigious places, they don’t pay for a prestigious private school and College in new York, and they don’t even throw away their clothes after they put them on. This is important and the key to many dialogues.Action and special effects in the film. Working with the camera is stupid. Light same that at night that day, that in rain that in heat. Indymusic with an excess of bass. To exhaustively feel the atmosphere and intensity of the film is enough for the first five minutes, then if you liked it, what if?!! and not hooked, so further no revelations.
