Trivia

The Six Rules of Making '52 Tuesdays' were as follows: (1) The film will be shot once a week, every Tuesday (and only on Tuesdays), over a full year (or 52 Tuesdays) ; (2) The film will be shot chronologically; what is shot on a specific Tuesday is what happens on that Tuesday (i.e. no re-shoots!) ; (3) Something from each of the fifty-two Tuesdays has to be shown ; (4) It will be a scripted drama but will allow the script to be heavily influenced during the year, with the writing continuing until the final Tuesday ; (5) A non-professional cast will be used who can be different but connected to their characters and will influence their story ; and (6) Rather than artificially creating change, allow the subtle but genuine changes over the course of the year to challenge our own expectations of time and change and influence the story we tell.

A teenager learns about sex, gender, love, freindship and growing up.
17 May 2014 | by froguarSee all my reviews

This film is both gentle because of how it was produced over 52 Tuesdays lets the story acquire a feeling of the natural-ness of time passing which for Billie is really important because 15 year olds change such a lot and this one in particular had a lot to cope with. The way the film was shot meant we got to really see Billy mature and her mother transition into James.

Billie, played by Tilda Cobham-Harvey and Del Herbet-Jane who played James were excellent in their roles, both apparently new to film acting. I especially enjoyed the performance of Cobham-Harvey whose story carried a challenging diversity as she went from being a child experimenting with sex and sexuality to having to cope with, understand and even support her transitioning mother.

A particularly sensitive exploration of the issues related to transgender.
