Sort of. Lady bird’s mother isn’t talking to her at the end of the movie when she leaves for college. She drives her to the airport but doesn’t say goodbye.

Also: A beloved drama teacher doesn’t come back the next semester.

Lady Bird isn’t abandoned in the literal sense but there are scenes where her mom leaves her when she needs her, like at the end where her mom leaves her at the airport without saying goodbye.

Ladybird’s parents clearly love her a lot but the movie does focus on a period where she is fighting a lot with her mom. Many harsh words are exchanged and feelings are hurt (with good reason). It’s not really abuse in the technical sense but it could be triggering or upsetting to people who are sensitive to mother/daughter fighting scenes and harsh/unfair criticism and hurtful language from a mother figure (in the context of an argument).

Arguably yes; the mom says that her own mother was an abusive alcoholic.

Lady Bird has sex with a man who's told her he's a virgin. After they have sex, he denies having ever said this.

Lady bird's mother is highly verbally abusive throughout, often gaslighting and mistreating her daughter as well as refusing to speak to her for an extended period of time after a fight and a multitude of other manipulation tactics. This treatment was distressing for me and could be for others who have also experienced abuse

No. It’s not explicit but it seems like Julie has a crush on her favorite math teacher and he definitely doesn’t discourage her attention: he gives her a nickname, praises her hard work on assignments and comes to see her in the musical with his pregnant wife. It could be upsetting to people who are highly sensitive to predatory teachers however what’s shown in the movie is fairly innocent and as far as we know nothing ever happens.

Lady Bird consents to sex based on lies told to her by her sexual partner, which is a form of sexual assault. See the gaslighting section for more details.

I don’t know why there aren’t much votes. Nobody is raped on- en offscreen. And no rape is implied. There is only a boy who first claimes to never had a sexual experience, but afterwards says he has had sex before.

Ladybird gets very drunk at her first college party at the end of the movie. She then throws up while making out with someone and then passes out and is rushed to the hospital for alcohol poisoning. She wakes up alone in the hospital room.

The mom works in a psych ward and one of the priests comes in and they elude to him having troubling thoughts. It’s set in a doctors office room, though. Nothing like seeing the actual psych ward itself.

Ladybird jumps out of a moving car in the first scene but it’s not intended as a suicide attempt and she just ends up with a broken arm.

The priest who directs the fall musical is seen in an evaluation with ladybird’s mom (a nurse at a hospital) and it is implied he has had suicidal ideations but no attempt is shown or discussed.

In an early scene, Lady Bird and Jules are eating communion wafers which make crunching sounds. In the scene where Lady Bird is about to sneak into the math classroom, she and Jules are eating donuts (I think it’s donuts, not really sure) and they smack loudly while eating them especially Lady Bird. Like almost over the top smacking at one point that’s really hard to sit through

Yes. Ladybird loses her virginity to Kyle. At the time she thinks he is also a virgin. In bed afterwards he admits he has had other partners and denies ever saying otherwise (though the scene where he said he was a virgin is shown). She is upset and embarrassed in the moment and breaks up with him.

The movie and Ladybird’s stance is definitely pro-choice but you do see an anti-abortion assembly at a Catholic girl’s school which could be upsetting to viewers sensitive to anti-choice propaganda.

While there is no car accident in Lady Bird, towards the beginning, the protagonist jumps out of a moving a car during a heated argument with her mother, who then screams. It skips to the next day, and she's left with a cast for her broken arm.
