I just recommended this movie to a CC student poster because I thought it might be particularly interesting to them. The movie "Lady Bird" is Greta Gerwig's autobiographical account of her high school senior year in Sacramento, CA. A major thread of the story is her college search. The movie opens as mother and daughter are just completing a long college road trip. I think the movie is a very compelling movie that portrays this part of her senior year in a thoughtful, touching, multifaceted, and potentially helpful way.
I would love to read what other CC parents and students think of the movie in relation to their own college search experience, or that of their kids.
(This is not a movie advertisement. I have no connection to the movie or anyone involved in its making or distribution. I just think it something potentially interesting and helpful to CC parents/students going through the college search process.)
