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.
"Grippingly plotted and exquisitely thoughtful, 52 Tuesdays is a poignant reminder that neither confusion nor crisis is doomed to be calamitous." -Inkoo Kang, Village Voice
"Warmly intimate portrait of an evolving bond that frays but doesn't sever." - Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"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." - Jess Lomas, Quickflix
