Lady Bird (2017) Movie Sex & Nudity

An 18 year old girl looks at a Playgirl magazine, and we briefly see full frontal male nudity from a distance. As certified by the MPAA, this is the reason for the statement “brief graphic nudity.”
There is a sex scene between a couple – they are only shown from the waist up. No nudity is shown within the scene. There is brief sexual movement and kissing but not graphic. The woman is in her underwear. This is the only real sexual scene in the movie, and there is no nudity and the scene is brief. Scene can easily be skipped.
A teen couple dry hump each other in a hallway. Not graphic and is mostly for laughs.
Some talk about sex and masturbation
A girl asks her friend if she has ever touched a penis
Implied scene of masturbation – not shown.
A girl has sex for the first time. No nudity is seen. They pause kissing for a moment so the boy can put on a condom. He is shirtless, she is in her bra. The scene is only a few seconds long, and their genitals are completely covered by a bedsheet.
A teenage girl refers her teacher as the C word to another girl and then repeats it. It’s hard to hear but still there



Film review:Translated by XX www.rabudo-ru.com


As a coming of age youth film, Lady Bird’s plot is familiar and trivial. The whole film focuses on the main line of high school students’ female owners who want to leave the small city of California to go to school in New York, interspersed with the ups and downs of family, friendship and love on the way of growth. Club, boyfriend, lovelorn, first taste the forbidden fruit, apply for college, and the most old-fashioned break and make up with your best friend are all plots that have been seen too many times. But lady bird is refreshing because it captures the essence of youth, that is, resistance and running away.

The struggle between the woman and her mother is the core of the film. The film begins with the quarrel between mother and daughter in the car and ends with the daughter’s weakness and reconciliation to her mother in a telephone message. In terms of character, mother and daughter are both similar and relative. First of all, they are sentimental. At the beginning of the film, they listened to the story recording in the car and wiped their tears after listening. Secondly, they don’t talk too much, they are reasonable and unforgiving, and they are unkind. On the one hand, when they quarreled, they talked to each other indiscriminately. On the other hand, we saw that the hostess hurt her friends, nuns loved in school, and even unrelated teachers. This can be understood as the influence of family relationship mode on people’s way of dealing with others. But the woman’s brother and father are obviously docile people. I prefer to believe that the woman’s poisonous tongue is partly influenced by her mother and more because of her reckless and reckless character.


Sentimental and mean words also seem to reflect the advantages of mother and daughter. First, they are very gentle inside. As a nurse, the compassion and care shown by the mother when the priest (also a teacher) of her daughter’s school came to see a doctor, as well as the daughter’s forgiveness and comfort to the ex boyfriend who came out, all reflect that they are actually knife mouth tofu heart. The second advantage is the tenacious spirit brought by a tough character. After my father lost his job, my mother tried to support the family alone. Although she often tried to control her daughter’s behavior on the grounds of economic pressure, she never stopped paying silently to the family. For her distant dream of a liberal arts university, her daughter applied for tuition subsidies and scholarships, begged her father for help, took summer jobs and saved money, and never gave up her dream.

Since they are so similar, why can’t Mother and daughter quarrel from beginning to end? The film gives many answers. The main contradiction is the daughter’s choice of University. Low income mothers want their daughter to attend California public university not far from home to save tuition. Her daughter despises the small town of California, which lacks cultural atmosphere, and yearns for the private schools in the northeast, which advocate liberal education but have high tuition fees. In addition, the film also shows various common contradictions in adolescence, such as the time to go home at night, who makes eggs in the morning, how to fold clothes before going to bed… Coupled with the strong character of mother and daughter, the quarrel is imminent. But I think these specific contradictions are not enough to constitute a protracted struggle between mother and daughter. The struggle exists because of the inevitable demand for resistance and running away in adolescence. Not all the fighting mothers and daughters are similar to the mothers and daughters in the film, but it seems that we fought with our parents in adolescence regardless of gender and family background. Lady Bird’s focus is not on class, but on the necessary process of growth. Because of this, the film can cause wide resonance, which makes me feel that the film tells my own story as a person with a different track of life.

Growth means accepting yourself. The self here not only refers to the self individual in the strict sense, but also contains many innate factors. Name, family, hometown, and even the middle school education of the female owner in the film can not be selected. Many coming of age films tell the story of accepting one’s own characteristics or some aspect of oneself. Moonlight’s male owners accepted their sexual orientation and origin, including skin color, drug culture, and drug addicted mothers. Therese in Carol accepted her sexual orientation and the responsibility of following her inner choices. The heroine of an education accepted the efforts that must be made to realize her dream. In the process of growing up, the heroine of this film should not only face up to the fact that she can’t play the heroine, is not good at mathematics and can’t get into Yale, but also learn to accept the fact that she comes from a small town, Catholic high school and her family is relatively poor. To some extent, it is much easier to accept the former than the latter, because people are always easier to forgive their own shortcomings. The struggle caused by dissatisfaction with the latter can make people shift their attention from their own defects and obtain a sense of enrichment and satisfaction in the continuous struggle with family origin.

For most of the film, the hostess refused to accept herself. The most obvious performance is that she changed the name given by her parents and gave herself a quoted, nondescript name “Lady Bird”. “Lady Bird” can be literally translated as Miss bird – when people want to escape, they seem to want to become birds, fly away and get a new life. Jenny in Forrest Gump’s true story took Forrest Gump in the rice field and prayed to God to turn herself into a bird so that she could fly far away and escape her violent father. In this film, in addition to changing her name, the female owner also refuses to let her father drive the car into school to cover up her poverty, and obtains the friendship of rich girls by lying. The contradiction between the hostess and her mother embodies her struggle with the second kind of facts. The mother’s body is the place where people are conceived. Words such as mother tongue and Alma Mater come from this. Women’s dissatisfaction with their hometown and their rebellion at school are reflected by their quarrels with their mother; Her character, as mentioned above, is precisely the most deeply influenced by her mother. The struggle between the hostess and her mother therefore covers her struggle against her hometown and origin. But this kind of struggle, because of its immutable results, is ineffective and childish. The victory obtained by verbally rejecting family origin is often temporary and illusory. Gatsby is the best example. But it is undeniable that the struggle has brought vigorous vitality to youth. The loveliness of the hostess is that she does not hide her ambition and her constant trial and error. Her struggle was stubborn and naive. The harm she suffered in the process of trying was as real as the harm she caused to others. Under the hard shell of tit for tat with her mother, she was also angry and hurt by her mother’s unkindness.

The hostess longed for her mother’s approval. This desire became more and more obvious in the second half of the film until she tentatively asked her mother: what if my best appearance is now? In fact, she never doubted her love for her mother and her mother’s love for herself. As the nun teacher said, what is the difference between love and attention? Only when you care about a person, you will pay attention to her every move in every detail, and you will be at war because of worry and dissent. The constant friction between the hostess and her mother on small things, and her constant complaints about her mother to her friends, in fact, reflect each other’s meticulous attention and care. What she really can’t let go is that her mother is picky about herself, because she is afraid that her mother can’t accept the real herself. This worry is about the most real problem of love – I love you and know you love me, but can I like you and can you like me? The growth in the film requires not only girls to accept their mothers, but also strong mothers to accept their daughters in order to be complete. One detail is that the woman who didn’t get her driver’s license at first passed the road test, laying the groundwork for the end to recall the paragraph of driving in her hometown. The driver’s license symbolizes the recognition of her growth in her hometown, just like the completion certificate obtained after graduating from high school. With this affirmation, she can drive to enjoy the scenery of the small town and reach a real reconciliation with her mother and hometown.

The struggle provides the source power for running away, and the success of running away means the resolution of the struggle and the subsequent confusion. When the hostess finally came to the dream New York, she lost her life goal of leaving the town for a long time. After the first experience of college life, her side in the camera suddenly became empty – the free sky in the big city came from no one’s attention. Accepted the name, accepted the family, accepted the hometown, life has just begun. After all, fighting against their own shortcomings is a one-man play that runs through life. It is difficult and lonely, without audience and applause.
