greta gerwig responds to her film being the freshest rotten tomatoes movie ever
Recently it was revealed that Greta Gerwig's new film Lady Bird has become the freshest Rotten Tomatoes film ever, a position previously held by cinematic masterpiece Toy Story 2. This doesn’t just mean it has a 100% score -- it has that too, but so do a few other films. It means that it’s had the most consecutive fresh scores (173 and counting) and zero rotten scores. This is obviously a huge deal, because Rotten Tomatoes is arguably the only constant in a turbulent, confusing world.
Now, Greta Gerwig has responded to this in an interview with Vanity Fair. “It’s so exciting. You make a movie and you put so much into it ... to have it reflected back to you, it’s an amazing thing.” As always, in pops a sibling to provide some grounding commentary, with Greta’s brother apparently expressing that he was “slightly skeptical” Lady Bird ousted Toy Story 2 from the top spot to her. It’s a fair point, but just also makes us really really excited to watch the film that managed to push that perfect film off its perch.
