No matter how close we are to someone, do we really know everything about them? How aware are we of all the pieces that make them a whole? In 52 Tuesdays, teenager Billie (Tilda Cobham-Hervey) certainly thinks she is always on the ball. Somewhat precocious, she shares a happy home life with her mother, Jane (Del Herbert-Jane) and partyboy Uncle Harry (Mario Spate). When Jane reveals her desire to become a man, Billie is packed off to live with her father Tom (Beau Travis Williams) whilst Jane transitions into James; both mother and daughter agreeing that they’ll meet every Tuesday to spend some quality time together.
Directed by Sophie Hyde and co-written with Matthew Cormack, and filmed over the course of literally 52 Tuesdays, James and Billie are shown taking two different, but similar journeys to define themselves. Whilst James is building a new life for himself, Billie, initially supportive of him, begins to flounder and seeks some form of control in her own. This blossoms into an sexual exploration with two seniors at her high school, played by Imogen Archer and Sam Althuizen.
