“There’s very little about the Australian drama “52 Tuesdays” that could be considered conventional. Not the characters, all of whom are played by nonprofessional actors. Not the story, which concerns the effects of a mother’s gender transition on her teenage daughter. And not the filmmaking, whose rigid structure — once a week for a year, only on Tuesdays — was decided before any other element.” NY Times
“A flawed yet fascinating Aussie indie, in which a woman’s gender reassignment is juxtaposed with her 16 year-old daughter’s sexual Maturity. Cobham-Hervey is a standout.” Empire
“This accessible narrative experiment boasts breakout talent in front of and behind the camera.” – Variety
“Full of touching moments even if its emotional rewards remain somewhat muted, 52 Tuesdays feels highly personal and is never less than absorbing or sincere in its depiction of a non-traditional family navigating difficult changes.” – Hollywood Reporter
