‘Lady Bird’: Greta Gerwig on Why a Screenwriter’s Job is to Listen as Much as to Write

By Sophia Harvey

Greta Gerwig may be a new director, but she knows a thing or two about movies.

Greta Gerwig first came onto the film scene as an actress associated with New York City’s mumblecore movement. She was cast in a small part in Joe Swanberg’s LOL in 2006, while she was still a student at Barnard College. Though her career successes pulled her towards acting, Gerwig’s original and prevailing dreams were behind the scenes. She had gone to Barnard with the intention of becoming a playwright, and now all these years later, she’s finally taken the plunge.

“When I finished the script I was like, ‘you’ve always wanted to do this, you’re not going to get any more information, you just gotta jump.'”

Lady Bird is Gerwig’s first directorial work, and it’s strikingly personal. The film resonates with a soulfulness that is in part due to Gerwig’s leadership, but also due to the phenomenal acting presences of Saoirse Ronen and Laurie Metcalf. It’s clear from the film’s steady hand that Gerwig’s long-gestating directorship was well worth the wait.
