LADY BIRD

GRETA GERWIG (Writer/Director) has rapidly emerged as one of Hollywood's most engaging actresses. Greta was last seen in Mike Mills' 20th Century Women alongside Annette Bening and Elle Fanning. Gerwig received a Critics' Choice Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress for her portrayal of the photographer Abbie. Last year, Gerwig starred in Pablo Larrain's Jackie alongside Natalie Portman and Peter Sarsgaard; Todd Solondz's Wiener-Dog opposite Danny DeVito, Ellen Burstyn, and Kieran Culkin; and Rebecca Miller's Maggie's Plan opposite Ethan Hawke and Julianne Moore. In 2015, Gerwig starred in Mistress America, a comedy that she co-wrote with director Noah Baumbach, which premiered to rave reviews at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. Gerwig's previous collaboration with Baumbach, Frances Ha, earned her Golden Globe and Broadcast Film Critics Association Award nominations for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Motion Picture.

The film, which also earned an Independent Spirit Award nomination for Best Feature, premiered at the 2012 Telluride Film Festival, Toronto Film Festival, and New York Film Festival. Gerwig first received critical acclaim for her breakout role as Florence in Greenberg, which marked her first collaboration with writer/director Noah Baumbach. Her performance earned her several nominations including a Gotham Award nomination for Breakthrough Performance and an Independent Spirit Award nomination for Best Female Lead. Other film credits include Barry Levinson's The Humbling, opposite Al Pacino and Dianne Wiest; Woody Allen's To Rome With Love, opposite Alec Baldwin, Jesse Eisenberg, and Ellen Page; Arthur, opposite Russell Brand and Helen Mirren; the romantic comedy No Strings Attached with Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher; Whit Stillman's comedy Damsels In Distress; and Fox Searchlight's Lola Versus. Gerwig graduated magna cum laude from Barnard College and currently resides in New York City.
