Twitter Capsule: Can you be shrewd and warm, happy and sad? I think you can. Lady Bird is. Appealingly complex, yet it's clear as a bell.

VOR:   Palpably informed by female perspectives. Nails the easy-looking task of arranging short, seemingly random scenes in specific sequence. Hard-won humanism.
