Chicago Critics Chirp For LADY BIRD (AWARDS 2017)


After a recent trend toward Get Out among critics groups, the Chicago Film Critics Association brought it back around to early favorite Lady Bird.

The debut directing feature from actress Greta Gerwig (who also wrote the screenplay, loosely inspired by her senior year in high school), Lady Bird also took Best Actress honors for Saoirse Ronan, and Most Promising Filmmaker for Gerwig.

Christopher Nolan received his second major Best Director prize for Dunkirk.

The remaining winners are all regulars from this ongoing Awards Season.
