Trivia

Of the structure of the film, its director Sophie Hyde said: "The video that Billie [Tilda Cobham-Hervey] makes, which infuses the film, highlights these all-consuming dramas, the everyday concerns of our lives, while the formal structure allows us to see these things from outside, to notice them and understand, but also to see them for what they are - small dramas that take over our big, real concerns about love, mortality and connection. For me, '52 Tuesdays' embraces this tension." See more »

A teenager learns about sex, gender, love, freindship and growing up.
17 May 2014 | by Claire WhiteleySee 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.
