52 Tuesdays is a 2013 Australian coming of age drama film on DVD, directed by Sophie Hyde.
16-year-old Billie’s reluctant path to independence is accelerated when her mother reveals plans for gender transition and their time together becomes limited to Tuesday afternoons. Filmed over the course of a year, once a week, every week – only on Tuesdays – these unique filmmaking rules bring a rare authenticity to this emotionally charged story of desire, responsibility and transformation.
52 Tuesdays Movie Reviews
“Demonstrates a willingness to experiment that bodes well for future endeavors.” Variety
“The movie stands out for all of the right reasons. It's a breath of fresh air, especially within the Australian industry, and not just because of its unique approach to shooting.” Quikflix
“Sensitively directed by Sophie Hyde, this quietly extraordinary film is brave in the best sense…the story side-steps any polemic distractions about prejudice or gender politics to focus on the fraught relationship between child and parent.” 3AW
