Great Gerwig's First Directorial Credit!
United States | 2008 | Greta Gerwig, Joe Swanberg
Lady Bird was Greta Gerwig’s solo directorial debut. But ten years ago, she co-directed an indie drama that she also co-wrote and co-starred in, along with her co-director and co-writer Joe Swanberg. (Swanberg essentially “discovered” Gerwig and cast her in her first four films, all directed by him.) Nights and Weekends is an ultra-low-budget “mumblecore” movie about two twentysomethings who live separately in New York and Chicago but try to maintain a long-distance relationship. Indie writer-directors Jay Duplass and Lynn Shelton co-star. Adults only! DVD. 79 min.
