In case you missed the news, Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut, Lady Bird, is a film that’s set in Sacramento.
Gerwig herself was born and raised in Sac and the film is semi-autobiographical. She said in an interview with the Sacramento Bee:
“I have always wanted to make a feature film in Sacramento. I wanted to make more than one feature film in Sacramento…. There are specific streets and houses and places and theaters that I have very deep feelings for.”
Indiewire reports that the coming-of-age film was well-received in both the Telluride and Toronto Film Festivals and speculates that it could possibly be a Best Picture contender.
