Saoirse Ronan gives a powerhouse performance as a restless 17-year-old student navigating her way through the pitfalls of Catholic school in California, her romantic dreams of college life in New York and her turbulent relationship with her mother. A glorious, semi-autobiographical coming-of-age début feature for director Greta Gerwig which has transformed her from indie darling to mainstream talent.
