Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A frustratingly fragmented yet warmly intimate portrait of an evolving bond that frays but doesn't sever.
Fresh: Demonstrates a willingness to experiment that bodes well for future endeavors.
Fresh: The sensitively observed drama is distinguished by its structurally adventurous approach and the intimacy of its storytelling.
Fresh: Grippingly plotted and exquisitely thoughtful, 52 Tuesdays is a poignant reminder that neither confusion nor crisis is doomed to be calamitous.
I absolutely loved this movie. It's about a teenage girl trying to cope with her emotions of having a transgendered parent and also trying to find herself through this transition. Anyone else in reality that is going through this will definitely relate to this story. Two thumbs up!!😀😀
I never review films but thought I should to encourage others to see this under-seen gem. Really beautiful Australian indie film. Sensitively drawn characters, heartfelt, yet structurally adventurous. Even its narrative lumps contribute toward its central thesis that lives are built and lived in only one direction.
