16 year old Billie’s reluctant path to independence is accelerated when her mother reveals plans to gender transition and their time together becomes limited to Tuesday afternoons.

Our take

A true festival darling, Sophie Hyde’s fiction debut audaciously not only explores an emotionally fraught and complex dual awakening in a family, but does so through a unique approach of filming it systematically, one day a week over a year. With a breakout performance by Tilda Cobham-Hervey.
