52 Tuesdays

Australia | 2013 | Sophie Hyde

Though a far cry from Boyhood’s 12 years, this debut feature was filmed every Tuesday for one year. A multiple award winner at festivals around the world, the film chronicles the challenging, strained relationship between a 16-year-old girl and her lesbian mother who is undergoing a sex change. The teen, who lives with her dad, is discovering her own sexuality at the same time that mom is altering hers, and the two of them see each other only on Tuesday afternoons. “[A] near-masterpiece…Grippingly plotted and exquisitely thoughtful.” –Village Voice.

Blu-ray. 109 min.
