A rebellious California Catholic school student (Ronan) spends a life changing senior year in this sweet heartwarming coming-of-age tale. The film received five Academy Award nominations: Best Picture, Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role (Ronan) and Best Performances by an Actress in a Supporting Role (Metcalf), and Best Achievement in Directing and Best Original Screenplay (both for Greta Gerwig, the film's director and writer).
