This Oscar-winner dazzled critics and audiences alike with its believable, insightful story of a mother and daughter,
unforgettably played by Shirley MacLaine and Debra Winger. From grand slapstick to deepest sentiment, director
James L. Brooks masterfully paints scenes from their evolving 30-year relationship. Jack Nicholson turns in a great
comic performance as MacLaine’s neighbor, a boozy, womanizing former astronaut.
Directed by Greta Gerwig and nominated for five Oscars, LADY BIRD is a warm, affecting comedy about a high schooler
(Saoirse Ronan) who must navigate a loving but turbulent relationship with her strong-willed mother (Laurie Metcalf) over
the course of her eventful and poignant senior year of high school.

Oklahoma was recently voted the manliest state in the USA. Radio talk show host Joe Cristiano wants to investigate if the
manliest men are willing to call in and discuss their mothers on air. These men come from all walks of life, and their mothers
are just as complicated. Together they ride horses, shoot guns, and discuss their deepest feelings, proving the only people
stronger than these men are the women who raised them.
