52 Tuesdays

Trailer Sneak Peek at "Sophie Hyde's 52 Tuesdays"

Australian films never get the coverage of the big blockbusters, something that's never quite made sense to us. However, when a film like 52 Tuesdays pops up that challenges every previous idea you have of the Australian film industry, it's impossible to ignore.

52 Tuesdays follows 16 year- old Billie, whose reluctant path to independence is sped up when her mum reveals plans to gender transition and their time together becomes limited to Tuesday afternoons.

Ok... so it's not EXACTLY Spider-Man 2 family friendly, but it does involve a family, so surely that's something. Isn't it?

Filmed over the course of a year, once a week, every week - only on Tuesdays - these unique filmmaking rules bring a rare authenticity to an emotionally charged exploration of desire, responsibility and transformation.

It's already impressed those at Sundance 2014, and in limited release, it may very well be the most talked about Australian film of the year.
