Greta The Great's Lady Bird Faves

Did you read my review of Greta Gerwig's directorial debut Lady Bird from the NYFF? If you missed it it's right here. The movie is wonderful, and when it's out on November 3rd you'd be wise to go see it. And if you're in New York you can make a whole big fun week out of it because The Quad theater here in Manhattan is letting Greta program over a whole week's worth of screenings! From November 1st thru 9th they're running "Origin Stories: Greta Gerwig's Footnotes to Lady Bird" which will screen 11 films she's found inspiration from and as surely as the woman's projected intelligence and curiosity in her every moment in front of and behind the screen this series is full of wonder and delight. Here's the list of films:

American Graffiti 
All That Jazz 
Fat City 
The 400 Blows 
Grey Gardens 
Jeanne Dielman, 23 quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles 
Original Cast Album: Company 
Pretty in Pink 
Say Anything… 
Secrets & Lies 

Greta will be there for a few of the screenings too!
Stay tuned to The Quad's website for more details.
