California Looks Good in Lady Bird

Oscar-nominated film Lady Bird is a coming-of-age story about a high school senior in 2002, played by Saoirse Ronan, and is a semi-autobiographical tale of Greta Gerwig’s, writer and director, upbringing in Northern California. Both Lady Bird and Gerwig cast themselves as artistic spirits who want to flee Sacramento and head to the East Coast “where culture is” as quoted in the movie—only to realize two minutes too late that their hometown was a “beautiful place”. Gerwig has mentioned multiple times that Lady Bird is her love letter to Sacramento, so it is not a big surprise the majority of the movie was filmed there. However, there were a couple scenes that were filmed in Southern California. Watch my video on the Lady Bird filming locations if you are interested in embarking on your own Lady Bird adventure.
