Movie Info

Directed by Sophie Hyde (Shut Up Little Man! An Audio Misadventure), the Australian filmmaker who won the Directing Award: World Cinema Dramatic at last year's Sundance Film Festival, 52 TUESDAYS is centered on the relationship between James (Del Herbert-Jane), a mother undergoing gender transition, and her precocious teenage daughter Billie (Tilda Cobham-Hervey). Looking forward to starting his gender transition but weary of how the process might affect his daughter, James asks Billie to move in with her father Tom (played by Beau Travis Williams). To make up for the abrupt separation, mother and daughter make a commitment to meet every Tuesday afternoon, no matter what. As the year progresses, James and Billie watch each other change in ways that sometimes threaten their once-unshakable relationship. As both individuals explore deep personal issues and struggle to remain connected, a complex tale of human desire and ultimately, physical and psychological transformation, emerges. (C) Kino Lorber

Grippingly plotted and exquisitely thoughtful, 52 Tuesdays is a poignant reminder that neither confusion nor crisis is doomed to be calamitous.

Mar 24, 2015 | Full Review…

The sensitively observed drama is distinguished by its structurally adventurous approach and the intimacy of its storytelling.

Mar 23, 2015 | Full Review…

Why does the film fall so flat? Partly it's the fatally tasteful indie aesthetic, evident in everything from Benjamin Speed's ambient score to Bryan Mason's digital cinematography, which aims for ''muted'' and ends up at ''drab''.
