BFI’s Audience Sentiment Survey
BFI would like to hear your thoughts in order to help reopen cinemas around the UK. Please fill in this survey which will ask you about your film watching experience during lockdown, how you want the cinema to feel when you return, and what safety precautions you would like to see.
Ladybird (2017) //  Greta Gerwig

Marketing Officer: Kirsty

"I recently re-watched Lady Bird and and had forgotten how much of a joy it is. I'm a huge sucker for a good indie style coming-of-age film so this ticks all the boxes for me. Each character feels relatable in their own way, a testament to the incredible script from Gerwig and the performances from those involved. Like many things, watching it in a post pandemic world hits a bit different. You feel more joy in the little daily nuances and emotions showcased on screen. Lady Bird is packed with brilliantly honest humour from start to finish!"
