Article Excerpt:

by Nathaniel R

Greta Gerwig directing the prom scene in Lady Bird.Look,she's even dressed for the occasion!Thefirst time we spoke to Greta Gerwigin 2013 forFrances Hait was over the phone.Her voice was so animated it felt like an in person interview.She was learning the accordion because of that seismically magical moment in the French filmHoly Motorsand revealing to me that she didn't think being an "actor-for-hire"in other people's work would be her path.Little did I know -- though perhaps she did -- thatthe exquisiteLady Birdwas coming.In between she wrote and starred inMistress America(2015) and gave what is arguably her best performance in Mike Mills20th Century Women(2016).The rest is of course current celebration and future history:Lady Birdproved a mainstream breakthrough as a writer/director.It's up for five Oscars including two for Greta Gerwig herself亚博主页as a writerandas a director.

This time,speaking in person,that familiar voice is just as lively but her laughter even more infectious.She radiates as much joy from talking art in real life as she often has creating it onscreen as a performer.

When I ask her her how the accordion is coming,she admits she's "rusty"and that it hasn't been a movie that inspired her lately but 'certain books' though she leaves them unnamed.Whatever feeds your soul as an artist,that's where you go.

on set directing Timothée and Saoire in Lady Bird (2017)

I reminder her about that comment about acting for others not being her path and she says "I know..."in a goofily apologetic way,like she always knew where she was heading but just hadn't told us.Our interview is after the jump...
