Araluen Arthouse Cinema: 52 Tuesdays

(Australia) Rated MA15+

Teenager Billie thinks she knows everything about her mother but is surprised to learn of mum’s plan to transition from woman to man. On top of this there’s also the upsetting parental decision that Billie will live with her dad full time for a year.

Mother and daughter make a promise to meet every week, every Tuesday, during the year. Their time together is spent adjusting to their friendly but distant relationship and so Billie seeks connections elsewhere.

Taking advantage of the increasing disconnection between her family members, Billie begins an unusual friendship with two older school kids where she gets to try the one thing she can’t work out: sex. As Billie starts to mirror her mother’s increasingly inaccessible life she discovers secrets are both a burden and a necessity to getting what you want.

Filmed over the course of a year – once a week, every week – only on Tuesdays, 52 Tuesdays explores a modern world in a moving and provocative way, presenting an unknown cast whose subtle changes over a year challenge expectations of time and transformation.
