All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

What Picture Day lacks in tension it makes up for in the writer-director's astute understanding of character and acuteness of observation.

This unusual coming-of-age comedy boasts excellent character development and involving performances. It's a promising feature movie debut for filmmaker Kate Melville.

Maslany is fantastic as the main character, and there's just enough irony and complexity to make this slice-of-life film seem relevant.

Picture Day leaves a pleasant aftertaste, and I can't help but chalk most of that up to Maslany.

...a well-intentioned yet wholly misguided coming-of-age story.

Audience Reviews for Picture Day


Quite a nice movie. I didn't expect much, so I was surprised when I actually found it quite engaging. Troubled teen girl gets involved with a douchey male in his 30's who sings in a band. She is outcast at school due to a bad rep and matching attitude. I actually quite liked her character. Definitely not perfect, but very real.

I r disappoint. I love Tatiana but the movie wasn't that engaging. I will say this, though, she sure likes helium, being in her black underwear, and naughty words XD
