The one shining beacon of light in all of 2017, Lady Bird, has now become the best- reviewed film in Rotten Tomatoes' history. The film stars Ronan as the titular Lady Bird, a high schooler living in 2002 Sacramento, navigating her tense relationship with her mother (Laurie Metcalf) and unclear future.

Lady Bird doesn't release in the United Kingdom until February, Lady Bird is nearly certified for awards glory in an upcoming couple of months with rumours of an Oscar nomination for Best Picture.

Released by indie film studios A24 (Moonlight) earlier this month, Lady Bird only went from a limited release to wider distribution this past weekend, and the film has so far pulled in $10.7 million in domestic theaters, according to Box Office Mojo.

Unlocked HTC U11 to get Android 8.0 Oreo update today
The smartphone was shipped with Android 7.1 in the U.S. market, which left users anticipating the update for Android 8.0 Oreo. VP of Product Management at HTC , Mo Versi, announced the Anroid Oreo 8.0 update for the phone on his Twitter handle.

But "Lady Bird", the directorial debut of writer-actress Greta Gerwig, swooped in to snatch the crown from the beloved Pixar flick this week, boasting a 100 percent rating based on 164 reviews (which has since risen to 170 reviews, as of this writing). That movie notched a 100% score as well, but only 163 reviews were recorded toward that rating. Whether Lady Bird makes it at the Oscars or not, the movie has already solidified itself as one of the best ones this year. Ronan, around whose performance the film revolves, will be seen next year starring in the films On Chesil Beach, The Seagull, and Mary Queen of Scots.

Gerwig added that the cast and crew are "using the tomato emoji more than [they] ever thought possible".

Lady Bird is out in wide release in U.S. theaters now.
