Film Director

For years, Hollywood made the mistake of thinking of Gerwig solely as an indie-movie inspiration, thanks especially to her collaborations as an actor with director Noah Baumbach on such films as “Frances Ha” and “Mistress America.” She changed all that with her first outing as a writer-director, “Lady Bird,” a movie so accessible and full of heart that audiences could almost miss how artfully it was constructed.
