New “Lady Bird” Images + Greta Gerwig talks about Saoirse

The Los Angeles Times posted a new article today in which Greta Gerwig talks about casting Saoirse in Lady Bird. It also features two new images of her in the film – a behind the scenes look and a promotional still. We’ve added those to our gallery, and you can read Greta’s interview below.

Greta Gerwig didn’t get much sleep leading up to the Friday premiere of her directorial debut, the coming-of-age dramedy “Lady Bird,” at the Telluride Film Festival.

For the actress turned writer-director, previously best known for her work in such films as “Frances Ha” and “20th Century Women,” the thought of screening “Lady Bird” in front of an audience of die-hard cinephiles and awards-season tastemakers — in the same opening-night slot that launched “Moonlight” last year, no less — was both thrilling and utterly frightening. On the flight to the festival, she’d read through the program and felt a shudder of fear at the caliber of filmmakers she would find herself among.

As it turned out, Gerwig had nothing to worry about. In its first outing, warmly introduced by “Moonlight” director Barry Jenkins, “Lady Bird” soared. The Telluride crowd gave a rousing response to the semi-autobiographical film about a fiercely independent high school senior (Saoirse Ronan) who yearns to go to college in New York to escape what she sees as her drab hometown of Sacramento and a stormy relationship with her mother (Laurie Metcalf). Within minutes after the lights went up, speculations about awards prospects for the film, which opens Nov. 10, were bouncing across social media.

On Saturday morning, The Times sat down with Gerwig as she was still processing the events of the previous night to talk about making the shift behind the camera with a highly personal story.

“On Chesil Beach” To Premiere at TIFF + New Still

Besides Lady Bird, it was just announced that On Chesil Beach will also premiere during this year’s Toronto International Film Festival! It runs from September 7 to September 17, and Saoirse’s presence hasn’t been confirmed yet. She started filming Mary, Queen of Scots yesterday, so we’re hoping there won’t be scheduling conflicts.

New painting of Saoirse in “Loving Vincent”

Along with the US distribution news, a new painting of Saoirse’s character in Loving Vincent has been released! It almost feels strange to refer to it as a promotional still, but given that the film was all painted, it seems like that’s what it is. The image has been added to our gallery!
