“Ken Loach once again demonstrates his proficiency for drawing excellent performances from unlikely actors with this gut-wrenching drama anchored by an award-winning central turn from erstwhile comedian Crissy Rock. Based on a true story, LADYBIRD, LADYBIRD tracks the heartbreaking tale of a woman whose tumultuous past and mental illnesses cause her children to be taken away from her by social services.” – British Film Institute

Reviews

Furious, radiant, raving, fierce, despairing, defiant, sometimes all within a single take, often without pausing to catch her breath, Crissy Rock is like an athlete playing a once-in-a-career game.
