Children Of The Late ‘90s, This New Teen Movie Is For You

For you. For me. Come crash into me.

Posted on

All children of the '90s remember the Dave Matthews Band song "Crash Into Me."

The track off of Crash was so ubiquitous in 1997 that anybody who's ever worn a pair of misshapen jeans has it genetically hardwired into their DNA.

The film centers on Christine "Lady Bird" McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) — and if her pink hair and the fact that she insists on going by Lady Bird (a nickname she gave herself) are any indication, then you know she's really into "Crash Into Me."

Lady Bird is the directorial debut from actor and filmmaker Greta Gerwig (Frances Ha, Mistress America). After a standing ovation at the Toronto International Film Festival screening of her film in early September, she talked about her personal affinity for the song and for Matthews.
